Well much to my shame I still haven’t finished the matinee jacket for our new little somebody. I am sewing in loose ends and then it will be time for the buttons! I have never come across such an unnecessarily complicated fussy pattern in my life- with stocking stitch bands around the garter stitch yoke and then, would you believe it, you cast off the collar and then have to pick up stitches from the sides and the cast off edge, just to knit two rows! This pattern will be in the next charity bag to come my way!
I am still reading Parade’s End. The hero is in the trenches with responsibility for sending troops to the front line, and it is chaos- no-one has the right papers or blankets and wills have to be written. Then his wife turns up! Which gives him chance to go over the plot from Part one all over again- the synopsis is a mere two pages long! I am beginning to loose patience with this book!
BUT I am also reading some books about the Greek islands- holiday preparations! Yippee!
