|I took this picture on our trip in Ocbtober|
I will also go straight ahead and admit I've been knitting a LOT lately. In the last month I've knit a hat, a sweater, and so far about 6 dish cloths. I'm also working on a Gemini top. I had started one ages and ages ago, but I messed up a stitch at the top and it is sitting in time out. Right now that means it is sitting in a storage facility in Glasgow and I won't be reunited with it until probably April. So I started a new one. I'm using Cotlin yarn, in pomegranate. I love the yarn, I love the color. I can't wait to see how it turns out!
|Also, my Dad made the table my knitting is sitting on. How cool is that?|
However all the knitting (and a bit of crochet), plus using my Mom's computer, whose desk is apparently unsuitable for me, had led to "knitters hand" and carpel tunnel. The knuckle at the base of my pointer finger (first knuckle? joint?) is very sore to the touch. I have been forced to rest and not knit for a few days, and it sucks. I'm feeling better today so I'm going to stop typing and rest some more. My Gemini needs me!
Here's the same picture as last week, but with different yarn. My Mom wanted in on the dish cloth party and she bought some multi-colored yarn that will go with her kitchen. Don't even both trying to see the pattern, it is impossible with this yarn. The other patterns looked better, I'll post about them on Friday I think.
That's it from me today. I'm off to take the dog to the groomer. Here is her "before picture."
