I finished spinning the main section of pink today. There is a section of mostly undyed fibre before I begin the green and I hope to get that section done tomorrow.
Joining tomorrow’s trapezoid will be interesting and will involve picking up stitches which I hadn’t considered when I was drawing up the plan. Shouldn’t be a problem though. I’ve done similar already with this blanket.
Nanki-Poo is the son of The Mikado but has been masquerading as a simple travelling musician in an effort to avoid marrying a slightly terrifying and much older woman from his fathers court. Through a comedy of errors, he must pretend to be executed so that he can marry Yum-Yum, the woman he loves, and not Katisha as he was promised. After revealing the execution to The Mikado, Nanki-Poo’s royalty is revealed. With the ‘death’ discovered, they will all die as punishment. But if they can divert Katisha’s attention to someone else, they might yet survive. They just have to convince Koko.
No Simon Gallagher or Helen Donaldson in this recording of the operetta but the talent (Derek Metzger and Terri Crouch) remains outstanding, and the humour excellent.
