Gosh I wish I had the button that made that numbery hash symbol… my laptop likes to play tricks on me and the @ key is actually ” and vice versa… I noticed that the numbery hash symbol comes out as a £ and I don’t know where the £ is to find the numbery hash symbol! I never thought I’d actually need it, so didn’t take it back to the shop to get it reprogrammed, and here I am… wishing I had it finally! Finally finding a use for that little symbol!
So as you will have guessed from the title, it’s Harvey Kimono update £1 day today!
There we have it…
By this point, I have already made a mistake… not reading the pattern meant that I did stocking stitch for 12cms FROM the first garter stitch rows instead of 12cms INCLUDING the first garter stitch rows… oops! Never mind… mine will be 2cms longer than Mums…
Mum however had a terrible knitting day the other day… she has four projects on the go… the Harvey Kimono, a baby vest to sell in the shop, some cable knit socks for Dad for Christmas and something else I can’t remember… all in one day she had to frog the baby vest as the wool she was knitting with turned into 2ply in the middle of the ball (not great spinning there A**ford!!!!) then she made a mistake in her daily four rows of cable and had to frog them, THEN she decided the picot edge at the bottom of the Harvey Kimono needed to be done in smaller needles as it was way wider than the rest of the back. Frogs galore.
So she is a bit behind now, having needed to re-start the process! But it’s not a race!
Next update will be in a few days!
So KB is back staying with her family for a while and Raymond and I are home alone together… I thought the other day that he hasn’t been on here for a bit… he got very camera shy after the whole birthday business and stopped letting me take pictures….
Raymond is a bit camera shy… It could be because I often forget to take the flash off and the first picture blinds him… (sorry Raymond) then he won’t open his eyes again… he’s a smart one isn’t he!
But yesterday was a great day for lying around in the sun and having your picture taken unawares.
OK Lovelies! I’m going to have a quick surf around and say hello to my bloggy friends…. I hope you all have a fab day and show yourself some kindness in many ways!
Lots and lots of love from Alice and Raymond XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
