a life on the ocean wave

24 Nov

Actually, just the White Caps Cowl. I’ve been knitting a row here and there and now and then with the occasional longer burst of activity. Mostly, it’s restricted to what I can do on the bus, which is rarely more than two rows (and that’s with the bamboo yarn, which provides faster results because it’s smoother, easier knitting), with maybe some night-time bowling over of a few more rows and once in a while some weekend work. On the whole, this has been fitted in around many other things, so although it’s taking longer than I’d hoped, and missed the birthday deadline entirely, it will certainly be ready as a Christmas gift.

Nearing completion

Normally at this hour on a Saturday, I’d be at a rowing regatta. However, although YoungB’s crew is rowing today, he is away this weekend and I no longer feel greatly obliged to be there on my own. When he was rowing, I would have gone to help set up marquees and chivvy the kids along at appropriate moments but the nature of school rowing is that the people change. So this morning, I slept late – for a Saturday – and don’t feel a bit guilty about having done so. DrB was up and about early for cycling purposes. He’s not home yet.

What do you reckon? Should I just knit a few more rows while I have some uninterrupted time?

    Absolutely! A cup of tea and some knitting, might be too early for a biscuit though, but sounds lovely

    I certainly would! I’d put the radio on, perhaps find a play to listen to and I’d just get knitting! I get very impatient as things get close to completion and just have to get on with it.
    Have fun! 🙂

      Thanks for your good advice. I confess to being not much keen on radio as background (probably relates to the job I do) but I did sit and knit quite a lot so the end is now definitely in sight.
