and be with my family for Thanksgiving, I would. But, maybe I’d have to send my clone.
I hate being difficult, getting sick. I have to say I eat out less often (more money for yarn) and also am careful about eating, health, and wellness in general. Yet, I am home alone…under the weather. I don’t want to get graphic about my intestines, broken GI tract…or the saga of PMS. I think I’m due for some R&R! Seriously…Not happening here. Not today…45mph high wind blowing…blizzard of rain…power lines and tress down…All I want to do is bundle up inside a hoodie and hibernate by the fire, toss my pain away, and wrap my family in my arms until I feel like I can handle the world again.
Have you ever had so many ideas in your head and started and stopped on a half dozen projects without focusing?? That has been me for the last few days! Nonetheless, I did unravel and re-knit one of the mittens–from start to finish, including text-editing, it was a 7-hour stranding project. This is a wonderful knit perfectly, pairing with Claudia Hand Painted Fingering (124 yards) and Koigu PPPM (117 yards.) I used Size 0 (2.0mm) for the whole pair. The outcome is toasty fabulous. Keep a watch on its written and charted pattern release, available soon. I highly recommend it.
Holiday Knit #2 is checked. Now, I have to put away the knitting needles for a day or two…or at least tuck them under the table…and go flying around the house to get things tidy (see I didn’t say PERFECT!) I hope tomorrow is a good day for everyone…
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
