That was the trip that was(n't)

had a great night out with fellow Rowanettes on Friday - and got to see The Ring - elegant and sophisticated, just like the wearer :0)

Knitting was done, please note Mr India, and even a spot of crochet. The wine consumed had nothing to do with the cancellation of yesterday's trip to The Gate Inn - believe me, nothing as minute as a tiny hangover would've got between me and a meal at t'Gate.

This post could easily have been named 'The Incompetent Knitter'. Brier is at it again. Look There I was, doing what us knitters love best, the seaming at the end, when something was brought kicking and screaming to my attention. Despie lots of care (!) I managed to have one of the fronts longer from armhole to shoulder than it should be. No manner of easing was going to make more than an inch disappear. I couldn't face yet more re-knitting, so I've decided to have myself a Kitchener party. Careful calculation informs me that I need to make 8 rows disappear. I'll be counting carefully, ever so carefully.

Paloma has gone to the frog pond. I just wasn't feeling the love. And only too soon this little imp was whispering in my ear 'That's gonna look like s***' 'Remember Knitter's Rule Number 1 - only knit what you truly love'. So. I listened and soon all that could be heard was rrrrriiiiiiiippppp .

One final thought. Having decided accidentally at last to avail myself of the spell check, why on Earth would anyone dream of replacing 'Knitter's' with 'Janitor's' ? Answers on a postcard.....

Hi India

Great to see you on Friday night - it all went very quickly! Hopefully we can meet up in June - should go for a Saturday afternoon!

Take Care

Ja-knitters. Hmmm. Getting a bit bilingual, it's going to have mean "yes, knitters!". Thanks for your comment on my blog; a few people have asked me about the blogroll, so I'll write a post on it soon... Of course, that's a fairly blatant attempt to ensure you check back... ;)

Definitely the right move on Paloma - I did the same to the Apocalypse Hoodie the other day. Just wasn't feeling the love ....

Now India, you naughty knitter, stop trying to use your powers for the bad and steal my silk, I've been to your blog before and I know that you are not short of stash. Move away from the silk...

Thanks for visiting my blog, your comments really made me giggle.
