I’m starting to get used to the government shutdown situation. I’ve gotten into a groove of tidying up, playing with Loki, knitting, and actually making meals from scratch.
Loki, always ready for a game:
He is not sure why all of a sudden Momma is home all the time, but he seems to enjoy it!
I’ve gotten a fair amount of knitting done. I completed a stealth project, and I started knitting a cowl:
This is being knit from Shalimar Missy bulky yarn, and it is just a simple yo, ssk lace pattern worked every other row, knit in the round (on alternate rows, I just knit around).
And I started this:
Can anyone guess what this will become? Hint: it is not a scarf.
It is fortunate that I have a yarn stash of epic proportion: I have no need to buy yarn for a very long time. Good thing, because right now I am limiting my expenditures to things like mortgage, utility bills, food, etc. Essentials for survival! Not that yarn isn’t an essential for survival, but I am a yarn survivalist — I stocked up in better times!
