What a difference a day makes

You now what? I reckon it was around about the time that I said to Mr L that I thought I might give my Laminaria to the Lifeboat Ladies for raffling when it is done, that the Knitting Goddess concluded I have become just a bit too uppity.

Whenever/whatever it was that offended her, she has just been along and whacked me about the chops with a whole shoal of wet codfish.

I seem to have completely arsed the blossom chart.

The problem now is that I forgot to put in a lifeline at the end of the transition chart. I was so enthused to have come out of it with the correct stitch count that I hurtled into the next chart without thinking.

“That’s OK” I said to myself “I’ll just put one in at the end of this first repeat.” Fine, except I am only at row 6 and the whole thing is completely arsed.

There are so many little problems now that I can no longer tell where I am with it. All I know is that I should have 136 stitches each side. One side has 135, the other has 130. And I seem to have found a section where at least one stitch has dropped and run back several rows.

It’s time for….

windowslivewriterrippitrippitrippit-11512kermit.jpgWhich means… 6 rows of the Blossom chart and 16 rows of the transition chart. Everything I have done today.

A complete day, wasted.

But, let’s be realistic. It is the faster option. Tinking back would take far longer than ripping to the lifeline and re-knitting.

A WHOLE day!

I’m not sure that I can bear it…

I’ll just get Mr L to verify my counts.

Feeling a bit seedy

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
