I know that it has been awhile since my last post. I guess I’m just a deadbeat!
I finally finished the Purl Ridge Moebius that I started almost a year ago. It was greatly delayed by the fact that I didn’t have enough yarn. I knew that I wanted to finish it off with the i-cord edging, but there was absolutely no way that I had enough. I’d asked a LYS to order some, but the store would have had to order lots of Mountain Colors to get my one little skein. So I waited. and waited. And waited. Finally, I was at a sale at another LYS with my friend Wendy, and much to my surprise, a skein of the yarn was hanging right there, waiting for me to snatch it faster than I normally grab chocolate.
It’s made from Mountain Colors Twizzle, and I love it. So much, in fact, that I’m going to keep it for myself. It’s *so* soft! I love how the Twizzle looks in garter stitch. It was worth the wait for the extra skein!
I also knitted a pair of handwarmers for my dear child. She loves her Fetchings, but they just aren’t substantial enough. I think I went overboard on this pair though. I knitted them with Plymouth Galway Chunky. They would be awesome for Ohio or some other place that actually experiences below-zero temperatures, but in Texas? Yeesh… What was I thinking? Still, she loves them, they fit well, and the yarn isn’t scratchy. I guess I can’t ask for much more than that.
Then, just as I was clearing the decks for more critters and a big costume project for my daughter, I got sick. It seems that there’s some flu bug going around that mimics Influenza A. It got me, and I spent the better part of two weeks coughing and sleeping (when I wasn’t coughing).
Fortunately, I’m mostly recovered now. Just in time for me to get on that costume project. I’ll have it ready for my daughter to wear to a costume party on Saturday night, so stay tuned…
