I had really meant to finish clue 3 of the Game of Thrones knit-along* by the time the fourth clue arrived on Sunday. Monday evening I was still knitting (although, that was a bank holiday here in England, so technically still Sunday, right?).
And then, shock horror, I ran out of yarn three rows before the end. Luckily, I knew that my mum had already sent off a parcel with the extra skein – and it arrived today.
(Along with the most lovely stripey socks she knitted for the shop, yay!)
So now I can carry on knitting this shawl, that is way too big, on a cable needle that is way too small, to give you (or me, for that matter) any sort of idea what it might look like.
In other knitterly news, I wrote a guest post for the Let’s Knit blog on how I started knitting, how it bonds the generations together and how it keeps me sane. You can read it here if you like!
Other than that, not much else has been read around here. A page here and there, but I am hopeful that one of these rainy afternoons I’ll get a good chunk of time with my book!
*I would link to the pattern, except I appear to have forgotten my Ravelry password. Is that even possible? Early night for me, I reckon!
