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.

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
