I wandered along with both the dogs,
through sunbeams, high and low,
When all at once we were in a crowd,
A swarm, of dancing flakes of snow.
Along the path and through the trees
Swirling and dipping in the breeze.
Apologies to Mr Wordsworth. I had to recite that in my third year at school and it has stuck ever since.
I is on the mend. I is feeling a bit twitchy. But, I is being a good couch potato.
The sneezing has more or less abated, but I do have a hacking cough. It caused me intense chest pain yesterday evening, I took my painkillers and was in bed (probably snoring) just after 8:00.
6:30 this morning and my eyes popped open, I was delighted to find myself in the land of the living.
I have not been idle though, I finished off the Christmas Eve cast on Cardigan and the blue Miette. I just need to find buttons for them both.
I have made a good start on the next Andi Satterlund pattern, Anouk. I have some glorious gold yarn for Francesca but, after reading that several peeps have had issues with the fit I cast it on with some stash yarn. The body is knit down to the bottom band and I am working on the first sleeve.
Fran will be here in 2 weeks and she can try it on (of course it will be finished) then I can see if I need to amend it for her.
I was planning on knitting Salal next but have read that some knitters have struggled with that. I will get Anouk done and then see.
The yarn that I am using is a very sturdy Aran weight, fairly heavy, in a glorious deep red with tweed neps and will make a perfect top for Autumn and Winter. Forward planning by chance, Serendipity that,s what it is. Although the yardage is greater than the pattern asks for it is a heavier yarn, soooo I will knit the sleeves to just long enough and then go back to the body and the button band. I have checked on line and the dye lot is still in stock, phew.
I will take some photo,s tomorrow, just need to locate the camera.
I hope that all is well with you, where ever you may be.
Sheila, I have those Thangles all ready to stick in the post, hopefully I will make it tomorrow.
HOW RUDE AM I?
I completely forgot to say thank you for all your well wishes, it did cheer me up.
