G'day again all!
Having a slow day today. Yesterday was a Big Day Out (and I did most of the driving), and last night, well it seems that I shouldn't eat food that is spicy, nor should I eat chocolate later in the day!
So I am now allowed to cast on for the Winter Olympics. Indeed I could've cast on nearly four hours ago (if I have my timelines correct) but nah. We've got a little time yet and I am busy knitting up squares for an afghan for the family of a friend who is no longer.
What are my plans?
Well I want to make a Citron out of this handspun
(only I will run out of yarn before it is finished). I will call it blood orange though Dh thinks it should be called pink grapefruit. I hate grapefruit though.
And a small Aeolian out of this handspun
(again, probably don't have enough yarn but I may just replace the nepps with beads just to get me to the end ok)
and make a personal footprint sock for DH out of this yarn (and maybe a pair of socks)
and make a personal footprint sock out of some of this yarn for me... Personal footprint sock is a Cat Bordhi idea. I bought her new book before I left the US but have only just looked at it on umm Thursday?
and spin up this 80g of ?BFL? as fine as I can to make another shawl(ette).
And if I am really cruising, finish off the bedjacket that is currently stalled (it is cotton and heavy to knit) and spin up all 200g+
of this wool silk blend! Note the price of the wool silk blend - I love my local guild! They get good stuff in at cost and pass it on to us :-)
I guess I had better get cracking on all of that! Most of what I want to do is fairly brainless, quite deliberately cos I am having fairly brainless times. That will probably get worse as chemo goes on and grinds me down more. Chemo brain is fairly well known and an accepted side effect.
But when can I knit my current love? The Travelled Woman that I started on Wednesday? I need to do a post for that one too....
