I've come to the conclusion that trying to cast on 98 stitches, knit in the round on double pointed needles whilst reading the subtitles and watching "The Bridge" is, a step to far!
In the end last night, I had to make a choice. Either ignore the tv and concentrate on picking up at least 2 stitches that had dropped un-noticed off the needles or forgo the knitting completely and concentrate on the tv.
The Bridge won!
How could I miss out on the chance that Saga might actually forget herself and break into a glimmer of a smile?
If you haven't had a chance to see this drama yet, I do give it the thumbs up!
Perhaps I like it so much because I feel the watching, the reading and the attempt at knitting all at the same time, is keeping my brain active and alert!
No subtitles with tonights tv, so hopefully I should be able to make the little baby hat quite easily.
We went out walking this morning, which was nice. Not far, just up into town and a walk through the park and alongside the river. It wasn't too cold and there were plenty of people out and about.
We walked down to the end of the promenade where Byrhtnoth looks out over the water. The statue was placed here to commemorate the 991AD Battle of Maldon where he led the English against a Viking invasion.
Returning home for an afternoon of sewing hasn't quite gone to plan. Instead I've fiddled with the layout of my blog, got myself in a little bit of a muddle and the sewing machine has yet to have had it's cover removed.
This I need to remedy so I'm afraid my blog layout will have to be deemed "work in progress".
