In the broader picture, Small Girl has done 10miles on her little bike riding the mile to school and back again every day, I have done the corresponding 20miles on foot, printed off two shawl patterns and favourited a third (who am I kidding?) We’ve had a sixth fruitless trip to the uniform shop for a school cardigan that fits (I’m getting quite bored with this now). Two bikes have been fixed, one frying pan exchanged. I have learned that when you slip a stitch purlwise you don’t necessarily have the yarn at the front like when you purl a stitch. This made picking up heel flap stitches easier than ever.
Happy new week everyone, hope the last one treated you well and that the new one will be even better! Thank you for all the lovely comments about the cape, it was a great success and is now firmly in the dressing up rotation.
