Home sick

I don't like being home sick, especially when I know they are short staffed at work. But, when one has a case of vertigo, one has no choice. More so when it is viral related, as this is. One good thing about being home, is the knitting time. I am working on a couple of blankets, and a stole. So I have been able to work on all three, that has to be good. The stole is from the latest Interweave magazine, the Shakespeare issue. It is Maria's Stole, and is working really well. The cHart is so very easy to read.

New look

This is my new look for a while. I had my hair have off to support Shave For a Cure. Leukemia and Blood cancer, which we are fundraising for at work.

Beautiful Merino

I was lucky enough to have some beautiful 14ply merino arrive in the mail today. I had ordered this yarn from Facebook. It has come from Lochanside Alpacas, which is up in the North Island. I also ordered some stitch markers, and they look even better in person. The yarn is called Coral Fairy, and so soft.

Long time, no post

I do keep meaning to post here, but then I let life get in the way. I don't think anyone is following this little blog of mine, but that's okay. I shall endeavour to improve writing on here more. Gotta keep a record of my knitting somewhere. 😊

Okay, so I thought I should do an update on my afghan. It is coming along quite nicely, even after some ripping back, and quite a few changes in the patterns. Yes, I have ditched some of the patterns I was going to use, and have changed the number of rows, as well. Who knew that working out patterns for a simple afghan would take so much work?!?!? I have paper, pencil, calculator, AND rubber all handy. I have needed them, too. Another thing I have learned, knitting and rugby don't always mix. Although, to be fair, it HAS kept me awake - both the knitting and the rugby.

This afghan has gone through a couple of changes. I will post more about it once things settle down. I have changed a couple of the patterns, changed how they are knitted up. Ripped it out so many times, but hope that has ended. Onward, and upward I go. 😊
