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….

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.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
