Discipline does not come easily to me. It was with a sinking heart that I considered my undertaking to knit one round of doily per day – as I set up the tracking spreadsheet and looked at the size of the task. If, and I say if, I do manage a round a day, the doily is scheduled to be completed on the 15th of December.

Today’s round is finished (round 62 of 166). I was about halfway through it when Mr L brought me my afternoon coffee, with a large piece of delicious and moist chocolate cake. The doily is white cotton. I did it. I completed the round without reaching for my snack. All clean hands. I am now eating my cake and drinking my lukewarm (ugh) coffee.

Discipline, it’s over-rated.
