Has anyone seen my postman? I think he forgot to bring me some wool. Doesn't he know I am 10 rows away from finishing this beautiful WIP? Someone should tell him. Maybe someone should also tell him that I will be at my Pilates class tomorrow, and if he could stuff the skein through my tiny letter box it would be most kind.
No, I did not make a gauge, and yes I totally relied on what was written on the label and on the pattern without questioning, and yes I got it wrong. I am quite annoyed because I am going away on Friday, and I know that the skein I am missing will arrive then. And this test knit deadline is Friday. So annoying. No I don't make gauges for a shawl - who does? - and yes I should, especially for a test knit. But if I am honest, I will continue without knitting a gauge for a shawl in the future - I am just living my life on the edge (knitting in my living room in front of the telly)!
Talk about living on the edge though, someone dared touch Hercule Poirot - and write a whole new book in the style of Agatha Christie. It is a bold move, considering that Agatha Christie killed her character, herself. So yes, on principle, I have issues with that. My Mum bought it, read it and discarded it at my house (she thinks I am an charity bookshop sometimes) - this is why I have the French version. I am reading it, it is ok, I will finish it, but I am totally enjoying it. Maybe it is one Poirot too many. What do you think?
