I tried. So hard. I managed to get some work done on Thursday. I could blame Dragon, I mean, it’s him I was so excited to be able to see .. but no. I’m a big girl, I choose when to work and when not to. Besides, I’ll not attach blame and sully such a lovely weekend.


Let the Circle Be Unbroken by Mildred D. Taylor. I actually made more progress on this since I took a long bath on Friday and was able to soak and read for a bit. It was sinfully delightful and so needed.

You get two pictures today .. and neither of them is a baby blanket. Perhaps you’ll see that on Friday. First up is a sad lonely cuff of a glove. There can only be one. See, one of Dragon’s fingerless gloves that I knit him jumped out of his jacket pocket and ran away. Its poor mate is crying. We can’t have that. Luckily I ‘think’ I have enough of the grey to reknit a cuff and plenty of the black to do the rest of the glove. At least Dragon has something to wear, should he need it since I pulled out the fingers on his other gloves and reknit them longer this weekend. The man has ‘very’ long fingers.

Second we have a Chinook Shawl. I only started it last night but I’m already up to row 7. Pretty impressive considering that my brain was a wee bit broke. This whole “start my own business” thing is hard. Nothing like a little lace to soothe my beleaguered mind. You know … if anybody ever needs proof of my insanity, I think I just gave it to them. Lace is not calming to most people, and given the anguished whimper I let out at nearly midnight it wasn’t very calming when I realized I’d knit the wrong row and had to undo it. At least I’m working the shawl on straights for a little bit, long enough to get the pattern established before I put it onto circulars and the yarn over start floating over the stitch markers and I lose where they belong.

  1. I like the cables you've got going on the fingerless glove. That's great that you have enough to replace it!

    Thank you! I don't know if they'll be identical to the glove he has or opposite. LOL At least the colors will be right. I'm glad that I'll end up using up every bit of my grey. ๐Ÿ™‚
