The problem with being unwell is you don’t really actually get anything done. In a normal way if four days off work staying at home were in the offing I would plan a lot of things, including plenty of knitting. And while I did cast off the frill on the Mille Colori shawl, I haven’t actually done very much in the way of knitting or crochet.
Last night I played around with the Adriafil Knitcol I bought a week or so ago to see if I could fashion a little cardigan for D’s granddaughter. I’m fine with the pattern but I’m not crazy about the way the yarn pools so I’ve frogged it.
This is my craft pile that was awaiting me this morning!
And when the post came, I received my newest copy of Inside Crochet and a 16 episode box set of Campion. I never watched them when they came out 25 years ago, but recently I have been reading Margery Allingham’s Campion novels in chronological order and I just love them. I’m a big fan of the women mystery writers who we’re writing between the wars. I think Allingham may just be my favourite. Anyway on Thursday I discovered that 8 of the novels had been made into 16 hour long episodes (2 episodes per book) starring Peter Davison. I bought it on Amazon and it arrived this morning! I knew what I’d be doing today!
I also made myself a promise I’d finish Hitchhiker today. And if I do, I get to cast on this cardigan for my Mum! The yarn is Sirdar Ella.
So I’ve been watching Campion and working on Hitchhiker!
