You know how it goes. You’re bored with everything.
I was three-quarters done with the first sleeve of the Big Kureyon pullover (the body’s complete) when I was overcome by ennui. Bleah.
The sweater’s way cute, but I needed a small gauge fix and fast!
So I wound some of my Jamieson’s into balls.
And cast on for Abalone.
I have no self-restraint.
But I feel much better now. I spent last night in a tequila fog, knitting the bottom band in two-color garter stitch. By the way, a lot of tequila makes two-color garter stitch a lot less painful.
Does Lucy Really Like Her Kitty Beds?
You bet your sweet bippy she does. I don’t have to entice her to get into one of her new beds — she’s quite happy snuggling up for a nap herself. She still sleeps in my lap while I’m knitting, but now she divides her time between lap and kitty beds.
In answer to a question in my blog, I bought the 4 quart Rubbermaid container at Linens ‘n Things.
Another Comment Question
Have you ever suffered through times when you’ve been physically unable to knit/craft, and, if so, how have you kept yourself sane during that period!?
No . . . not really. In 1994 I was in an accident that crushed my right leg and for a couple of weeks I didn’t knit. But I didn’t do anything else, either — I was on serious pain meds and copuldn’t even focus enough to watch television. I spent my days staring out the window.
But as soon as the pain diminished, I was knitting. Fortunately, I’ve never had an injury that left me physically unable to knit.
Long may that continue!
