Good morning! It's the end of the working week already - almost, anyway. Time is flying right now and I have become used to staying in and staying as safe as possible. The most difficult thing (and that's a very relative term) is thinking something like 'oh, I will need some more xyz soon' and then remembering it has to go on a list rather than me just popping round to the very convenient Morrisons around the corner! Then, when I have a long enough list or really do need something, I will go as soon as whichever shop I want opens first thing in the morning. There has to be an advantage to being an early riser.
It's cold again. The car is covered with ice (not frost). It's good and cosy inside though so no complaints.
I've dug out some yarn and needles and started knitting hexagons. However, I've hit a few snags. Firstly, the pattern is, as far as I can tell, not correct. The increasing and decreasing is not as neat as it could be and there seem to be rows missed out so that suddenly the right side becomes the wrong side which is weird. The moss stitch hexagon knits to a different size although I will try that again just to make sure it wasn't my bad knitting. And finally, the pattern specifies DK yarn and size 4.5 needles and it's all rather loose and floppy. Perhaps that's the idea but I prefer the hexagons to be a bit firmer so I will try with fours instead and see how that works out. I also have some ideas for different patterns on the shape. Each hexagon really doesn't take long at all and I will enjoy the experimenting.
My two online thingies were lovely. I had a great chat with Chris in the morning and the Zoom SW meeting early evening was a good laugh. All very cheering, in fact.
Today is pretty much more of the same. I have a chat with Jackie organised for this morning and the cleaners, bless them, come this afternoon. I've sent off a message saying I'd prefer them to focus on downstairs this time. I gather there's a brand new series of Would I Lie To You starting this evening so I'm really looking forward to that no end.
It's going to be a good day. You have one too and stay warm and safe. xx
