It's been over a week and no update. I started several times. Attempted to come up with something pithy and meaningful. No such luck.
So just a brief update, in the Flylady milieu of "work done imperfectly still blesses your family" or some such muck.
The sweater's trucking along. I'm down to the sleeves now. I started one by picking up and knitting along the armhole, but I am not crazy about how it looks. I'm going to rip it back, and follow the pattern as recommended this time. Perhaps not ideal, but better than having a funky looking sweater that I'll never wear. It's knitting up nicely, though.
That's the back and part of the front.
And that's a closeup of the yarn and the fabric. Pretty, huh?
Saturday was younger daughter's 21st birthday.
We took her to Damon's for her first drink, where she managed to lose her wallet. No money in it, but a lot of inconvenience.
My family is pretty weird, sometimes.
I leave you for now with flowers, and a cat. Here's to better cheer in the days ahead, and a long trip towards being well again that might just begin some time soon.
Chitchat and the occasional in-depth analysis about fiber, knitting, spinning, crochet, cooking, feminism, self-image, and a modicum of personal blathering.
