Mrs May has, we are told, appealed to President Trump to assure her that British citizens will be treated like British citizens, whatever their original nationality. This is a matter of some interest to us, as Alexander’s wife Ketki (now a British subject) was born in the Sudan. They are glad they had their big family holiday in the USofA last summer. They plan to stay away, for the time being, whatever the President replies to Mrs May.
I have just pitched the computer into the Greek alphabet again. What is it I do? At least I remembered that the quickest way out of the mess is to reboot.
I have finished the border pattern for Mrs Hunter’s shawl, done the decrease row, done the break row (k2tog, yo across – that was a bit slow), and embarked on the final plain knit row. I’ve done the first quarter of that one (also rather slow) and can confirm that there are 141 stitches in it which is what we're aiming at.
I continued to entertain my idea of posting EYF 2016 stash to the so-named thread in the Ravelry group, but I’m stuck. I bought yarn for four projects. I looked back through the blog to make sure. I think I’ve knit only two – a shawl to a pattern of Mary Lou’s and the Uncia, which I bought as yarn destined for another project. But I can only find one remaining EYF ’16 project in the stash cupboard – a capelet by Carol Feller from IK; rather nice yarn. I’ll have to look harder tomorrow.
I seem to have run out of steam, and Perdita is pestering me to go to bed.
