I've just packed up the car and driven off for a long-awaited holiday at my parent's farm, as the deadline for the Christening Shawl looms ever nearer.
I packed the DVDs to watch while knitting, plus the spare needles, the safety line yarn, the pattern -- I even remembered the actual project."Brilliant," I thought to myself as I accelarated away.
"I can get heaps of knitting done -- should be able to get it to the final edging before I have to go back to work. It'll be ready just in time."
So after a hard morning's work (counting cows and making notes, as I watched the others branding cattle), I put on the telly, picked up my needles. Good movie, comfy chair, happy knitting...
But my joy was shortlived -- and my yarn was short-changed. As soon as I went to knit the first stitch, I realised that I'd stopped at the end of a skein, and hadn't brought any more yarn with me. D'oh!
Looks like there will be no knitting for me, until I get home on the weekend/early next week.
That will teach me for trying to cram a six-month project into a two week break...
