I had a disaster this morning and am lamenting for a little while with some chocolate.
I was knitting away on my new jumper, the one with 2 charts, when it took on a life of it's own (or maybe I sat on the circular cord!) and it came off the needles #~**""!! Sooo after a bit of nearly tears and a hot strong cuppa I picked up the rats nest. Stitches had run every which way and I just ripped it back to a good spot and started picking up to find that 10 whole rows had gone. I don't care (well maybe I do a bit) it is only knitting and as the song goes "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger".
see me in the next strong man event.
Anyhoo, it is all done and set up for row 7 I just needed to step away for a little while. It will be easier this time as I found a line magnifier and it has arrived plus I now understand how the pattern is formed instead of just blindly following the charts.
I will be putting names in a hattish thingy later and pulling a few out so tomorrow I will publish winners and if they have blogs will let them know, if not they will have to contact me with their details. All my comments are moderated so no addresses will be published.
I am much better today but am still taking it easy, I do have washing on the whirly thing but after all pegging out is not arduous.
The weather is warm and dry but cloudy so I am certain that it will get dry.
I found a new podcast to entertain me this morning, Woolly Elephant, run by a mother and daughter team a bit further North in the UK than me. I watched the first episode and will be having a bit of a binge later on.
I may even make a rhubarb crumble and a drop of custard to enjoy with it. I have to listen to my body and it thinks that will hit the spot quite nicely.
Still excited about Wonderwool, I really need to chose a project and search for the yarn to make it. I don't want to just buy random skeins and then have to search for a pattern to match. One of the knit and natter girls is hell bent on finding the yarn for the Pavement sweater, I do like it but am not sure that it is far enough away from the Flax sweater that is on my list. I do have a couple of shawl patterns that I love...I will make my mind up at the last moment I am sure. If not I could be stretching my arms by a fair few inches. hehe.
Time for tea now and a little walk with Ben, he is loving all this couch potato time, I may have to call him chips or mash soon.
