I have frogged the Gull Baby Blanket. I had done enough to measure the width and I was way way out with my calculations - by at least 13". The blankie was 39" instead of 26". I really don't know what I was thinking about when deciding the stitch numbers. The pattern said 123 on 5mm, so what ever posessed me to do 193 on 3.5mm, I really don't know. I now have 137 stitches, which shold bring it out at around 27". I have one more row of the border to do now before the main lavce pattern starts. At least the rows are nearly 1/3 shorter. Should get it done quicker.
I still want to do the cardi jacket in this months yarnwise. And I want to do it in one colour, not in stripes. I am sourcing yarn, and alternative yarns.
MJ and I were due to go to Penrith today, to have a look around the shops. I took the last minute decision not to go as I thought it might get too cold for MJ. It was due to be sunny but cold - 2-4c (I think that is about 37f). Instead we had a very relaxing morning in the house, just the three of us. HK cleaned the chickens out. Mary-Jane and I played in the kitchen and had lots of fun. The three of us managed to sit at the kitchen table together to eat lunch. I cannot remember the last time we did that, or were able to do that. It was more than pleasant, I must say.
Mary-Jane didn't have the best of nights. She woke up crying twice, where we had to go into her. But she had a lie in in the morning! I didn't wake up until a quarter to eight! Now that is something else I have not done for a while, and no raging headache (just a dull one that went on it's own).
