I awoke this morning to a flat tyre. This was not wholly unexpected as I have been pumping it up for the past 6 weeks or so. Today it was undriveable. "No worries," I said to Mr Clicky, "I'll phone the RAC, they'll do it." Mr C muttered that he could change a tyre and we didn't need them. He started loosening the wheel nuts but the locking nut proved to be a sticking point. We both jumped up and down on the tyre lever, but it would not budge. 30 minutes later the nice RAC man turned up and had it changed in a jiffy, the culprit being a broken off screw firmly lodged in the tread.
We had a little bit of snow in the week. It was very beautiful, but unfortunately not enough to cause a snow day.
It then becomes a nuisance because at school the children take 10 minutes either side of break times, trying to find wellies, hats, scarves and gloves. It had warmed enough by the afternoon for a bit of rain, and soon it was gone.
My Mum gave me a Amaryllis for Christmas which was lovely because I can't remember the last time I had one. It's been putting on inches every day and is nearly ready to burst.
Which about describes me as well at the moment. Do you remember my Caramel Cardigan? I cast on on Christmas Day, all excited that a new project was under way. Remember that I said my tension was "a bit off'?" I've got to the sleeves and split the body. Maisie was happy to model. There was however, a bit of a problem. It was too tight! I measured my tension again, still off. What could it be? I was at loss and then checked my needles. Pattern states 4mm......................I was using 3.25mm.
What was I thinking???????? As I have previously said I did cast this on on Christmas Day but I had only drunk 2 glasses of champagne. AAARRRRRGGGGHHHHHHH.
This evening I shall mostly be frogging.
Have a good week, I'll see you soon.
