Today the weather forecast was not too good. Rain and showers and hail and strong winds.
I thought it would be a perfect day to curl up on the couch and knit this new pink jacket.
Well I haven't even bothered taking a progress shot cos I am only about 16 rows into the back. LOL Instead I helped Nathan build his greenhouse, out in the cold and occasionally wet. And dyed some more yarn. And made a yummy dinner (Nathan added the flavouring and made it extra YUMMY!). And now I fear I may have a cold cos I feel pretty ratty and my nose keeps dripping.
So I'll keep it short and sweet and show off some yarn that has been all balled up (but not ballsed up!). I had to hand wind the last bit cos it is too big for my ballwinder. This is the mauve and blue and pink yarn I showed off last week. It is so pretty I almost want to keep it for myself....
There's a bit over 200g of yarn, 8 ply/DK/worsted weight. I might just go and look at it for a while. Ohhhh.... I made prettiness!
Oh btw, Jillian, Patons here is not the same as Patons anywhere else. Patons Oz designed the pattern (book) and I doubt if you could get it in the USA (even though another Oz brand Cleckheaton is effectively the same as Patons (it is spun by the same mill and owned by the same people) and Cleckheaton is distributed in the USA by Plymouth). However, there are nice people in the world (ie MOI!) who would buy the book for you and send it over.
Back to sitting on the couch, which I have managed for about an hour this evening in between doing dinner stuff and painting part of a wall, trying to get clothes and recently dyed yarn dry, etc, etc. I have a full week of work ahead. Blah. I need a holiday, or at least some time to catch up on everything that is running out of control.
Or maybe I will just sit here and scratch the cat's ear, like the earwaxy part with my knuckle - she keeps shoving her ear onto my knuckle. Yuck. Bad enough one's own stinky ear wax. It doesn't look like she has earmites or anything though. Nope, we've moved to scratching under the arm - she even lifted up her front paw to make it easier for me.
