Oh well. No one ever accused me of being consistent.
Monday was a federal holiday, and I had plans to spend a chunk of time spinning. Never got around to it. I couldn’t drag myself away from the knitting, though I really did want to spin.
Truth be told, I also spent a fair chunk of time rearranging the furniture in my living room.
Rearranging your living room furniture while your cat is asleep in the bedroom, thereby freaking her out when she strolls, unsuspecting, into the living room? Priceless.
Actually, Lucy did not freak out. She was a tad taken aback when she saw the changes (it is fun to watch a cat do a doubletake!), but she has far more aplomb than to let such things bother her. She likes the new arrangement, wherein the sofa table is actually behind the sofa (imagine that), so she can take a stroll back there.
Only problem is, the table is now sandwiched between sofa and wall, so its fun twisty legs aren’t visible.
I love the twisty legs. Oh well, I know they’re there.
And now you do too. Thrilling, no?
I seem to have gotten off on a tangent.
Anyhow, I need to figure a way to fit more spinning time into my days. Perhaps get up an hour earlier? Definitely not! I think my best solution is to institute The Spinning Hour (not to be confused with The Witching Hour).
We’ll see how that goes.
So, here’s the knitting away from which I could not drag myself.
I finished the bottom border. I do so love colorwork on tiny needles, even if it does take freaking forever to make progress.
As Vanessa pointed out, I’m using my beloved Holz & Stein ebony circular (in size 2.5mm) for this project.
My pattern repeats are 24 stitches each, so I’ve placed a marker every 24 stitches. The first marker of the round is white, the marker at the midpoint is black, and the rest are red.
I just like knowing where I am. 🙂
Are You Knitting a Hanne Falkenberg Design?
If so, this email I got from Becky might interest you:
. . . I started a Hanne Falkenberg knitalong at http://hannealong.blogspot.com/ Your Mermaid was one of many that I have admired in blogland and I was thrilled to receive the purple mermaid kit for Christmas and can’t wait to get started.
Becky sent me this information along with her photos for my Kitty Bed Gallery. You might want to check the gallery out if you haven’t lately. There are a lot of very cute new photos there.
Even Lucy thinks so.
