Whatever was I thinking?
Given that I had so much trouble with a cable pattern over 12 rows, why ever did I think it a good idea to knit something with 170 stitches on the needles with a 17 stitch repeat pattern? I have 64 rows of this to do. All I can say was that back in the Autumn knitting a mermaid’s tail for my granddaughter seemed a good idea. Can anyone think of any good reason I started this? It’s double knitting yarn too. I am trying to do two repeats every day, four rows to one repeat. Just thinking about it means I need a lie down. Exhausted.
The pattern doesn’t even make much sense to me. It’s all holes and waves.
The book is another one lent by a friend. Number three off my bedside heap. The blurb on the back says it’s a novel about coping with bereavement. But the characters are so weird. Shades of Cold Comfort Farm. What am I to say when I return this one? Sorry, I love you friend but the book is weird.
Thanks goodness for crochet.
I have added the middle section to the blanket,(shown as bottom row in the pcture) now to repeat the first three rows of blocks. I can do one block a night, but my hand is starting to hurt. My brother says his does too and his GP said it is arthritis. Please no.
