Home again, home again with a low grade fever, headache, sore throat, etc., etc. Even though my work hours have been reduced I’m still exposed to the same little germs by the same little germ carriers. Others in this field tell me that after about a year one’s immunity builds up. Aaaaa! This may sound selfish, but I don’t want another 8 months of feeling this way.
Here’s an updated picture of the red top-down cardigan.
The two-tone blue Ribby Cardi is completed with the exception of the zipper. I plan on re-reading Grumperina’s tutorial/experiences regarding her own recent zipper installation prior to beginning.
The owner of the local yarn store said that the yarn for the Harry Potter socks should be in next week. I’ve chosen a Fair Isle pattern from Charlene Schurch’s Sensational Knitted Socks. This link has a button that says “View more images”. If you click on that and then click on choices “9-12” then you can kind of see the sock. It is the bottom version, except that mine will be worked in the two house colors rather than the suggested three colors. IF possible then a house initial may somehow be incorporated as well… that’s a mighty big if.
Tonight I’m finally casting on Anne Hanson’s Starlight Wrap Shawl. Yeah! I didn’t want any other WIP’s nagging, whining or otherwise harassing and distracting me from the lace pattern.
Everything else is status quo here. The kids are having one last after-dinner play session outside and the cats are napping. But where is my DH? If you follow me quietly then maybe we can catch him in his natural habitat. Oh heck, go ahead and be loud, he’s wearing headphones.
