Another One Bites the Dust
You knew it was coming, and I was too hopeful to admit it. Sweetie girl is now running a fever. I encourage my kids to share, and I guess this is proof they do, even germs. On top of that, sweetie boy needed stronger meds on Friday evening, and this morning he has a rash all over. We’re heading back to urgent care this afternoon to switch out his meds.
On the knitting front, here are the pics of the silky tie wrap, modeled by yours truly. The pattern was one of Iris Shreier’s modular knits, and it was quite fun. I got a little aggressive on the blocking action in the back, so it’s a bit wider and more flappy than I like. If I did it again, I’d use the worsted weight, drapey yarn, called for in the pattern, rather than the fingering weight Catania. Jillian, one of my SnB knitting buds, complimented me on the lace. Huh? Wha? Who? Me? Lace? I guess it’s kinda lacy, so does that qualify? It’s amazing, the things I stupidly accomplish without trying. Next up, the Odessa hat by Grumperina, and a knitted babe for my sickie sweetie girl.
