Hello everyone, I am back!! We are happily settling in our new home in Australia, and I getting back into my knitting.
|He lives on an island not far from our house. How cool is that?|
I took a lot of time off to let my hand heal, and while it isn't 100%, it is better than it was. If I'm honest, I blame the cotton yarn. It really did a number on me. Which is a shame, because I want to make dishcloths. I want to feel better more though, so they are on hold.
Instead I ripped out my Gemini, and started over. I am not sure how, but my stitch count was off, with more on the sleeves than the front and back! I had started it in Arizona, and it just was....wrong. After we got settled in our new house I cast on again, and things were going swimmingly. Then when my hand started hurting again I realized I was using linen and cotton blend. Grrrr. I didn't get far, I set it aside.
I worked on my sock.
But then I got bored. It is self striping yarn so I just knit it in plain stockinette. Yawn.
So I cast on a cowl. Yes, in the summer. I work in a veg factory now (though I'll be back to agronomy before I freeze solid!), and let me tell you, it is cold! So a scarf is in order. Plus, I had the lovely yarn from Hazel's giveaway, and it doesn't hurt my hand at all!

So that is what I'm working on this week. I hope you are all well, I've missed our weekly chats and show and tells. It is good to be back!
