Yesterday I enjoyed a day off from work. My list of leisurely activities included, returning a pair of shorts, buying new parts to repair my daughter’s bicycle, taking the kitty to the vet, buying medicine for the kitty, picking up my own pharmaceuticals elsewhere, repairing the afore-mentioned bicycle, picking up and watching an extra child and then all of the regular chores. Needless to say, by dinner time a zombie-esque trance had set in. I wandered from the pantry to the freezer and then to the refrigerator trying to decide what to cook. Upon opening the refrigerator this sight greeted me.
What a strange group of pranksters this family is! The produce net was an especially nice touch. We ate chicken and dumplings and left the alien head for another night.
Today I pulled my sweater UFO out of mothballs in hopes of finishing it off sometime this month. This is the A Cardigan for Arwen sweater which was stashed away back in November in lieu of Christmas knitting. The back, front left panel and left sleeve are complete. The next step should be creating the left side of the hood. The problem is that it’s been so long since working on this that I’m completely lost. The phrase, “Couldn’t find your arse with both hands and a road map” completely applies. Tonight I’ll stare at it and read the pattern again in hopes that something clicks.
