Today begins a new week. A week in which I stop doing things that a) bother me, b) take too much time and energy and c) get me down. And since I’m still blogging we can assume that blogging right now doesn’t do any of those things. Which is good.
I would like to move in to several of these shots.
A Week in the Life is done.
This was a lot harder than I anticipated. It wasn’t just keeping the camera with me and remembering to take pictures all the time. It was eye opening in ways I didn’t expect. I highly recommend it.
Knitting: This week I got my knitting mojo back. Huzzah!
I just realized I never posted a picture of my finished Orange Clapotis.
- Project: Orange Clapotis (Clapotis #6)
- Pattern: Clapotis by Kate Gilbert
- Yarn: Laughing Rat Studio Superwash Merino Sock Yarn, nearly one giant skein (112o yards in the skein)
- Needles: US 4
- Mods: Since I was using fingering weight yarn I knit 8 increase repeats and 18 straight repeats.
I’ve also not gotten pictures of that red cowl. If I don’t remember to do it right away it just slips away. Thank you, brain fog.
I managed to get this blanket done in time for the Bonnie Babies challenge:
Nearly done. With my Christmas socks. Yes, it’s nearly May.
I have had this pattern since it came out three years ago. It scared me then. It does not scare me now but holy heck, is it a pattern you have to concentrate on. I’ve had to frog the entire front once and tinked back more than I care to count. There’s still a mistake but I wasn’t about to frog it again. You need your wits about you for this one.
This yarn will soon be the Lamb’s Lace Cardi for Bertha. Just need to free up a project bag.
And the crocheted blanket was making progress:
It’s kind of too hot to work on it now. That and I am running low on scraps.
Reading: Still reading The Sound of Paper by Julia Cameron (I’m finally getting around to doing the exercises), Your Money or Your Life by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin and Life Interrupted by Laurie Edwards. Sometimes it’s good to have reminders that you’re not alone in all this health related stuff. More on that next week or so.
Listening To: Right now, Starlight by Muse. In general this week it’s been Kylie. Lots of Kylie.
Watching: Scooby Doo (always a favorite). Underworld. Which promptly made both J. and I wish we’d picked a better vampire movie to watch.
Have a good week.
