Poppy Progress: 05/09 Little Miss Smartypants

So, I thought I could knit and puzzle at the same time. So I did. AndI was getting on famously until I spotted the dropped stitch. I need to tink. That probably won’t happen today. Maybe tomorrow.

Acknowledging the low light levels last might, I swapped to the back-up project. A Handsome Triangle. It is up to Row 50 now. I will start a series of posts for that soon.

Knitting time will be at a premium this week: cooking today, Craft club Monday, spinning Wednesday, trip to town, Ranger photo walk on Friday (Yay!) I’d like to reach the border by the weekend, but it is difficult to see how, especially now the need to tink has arisen. That’ll teach me.

In Other News:

1)  I made a spreadsheet to calculate %age done on the Poppies. It came out to all but 15% and I added that figure to yesterday’s post.

2) I found myself inexplicably driven this morning to cast on another Clapotis -  after discussion on the shawl KAL board. Clapotis Mk3III I must be mad.

3) Still have headache

The rest of the day will be given over to the preparation, making of, and eating pakora.

Will try to do progress photos tomorrow.

Dusty had indeed brought some prey in and when he saw his dad, he let goContinue readingDecember Reflections 4: Red

In a pickle

Shops are now open to sell anything on their shelves and we are no longer restricted to purchasing whatever some government official has deemed to be “essential”. We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle
