Let's See

I know who two of my Knitters' Hunk nominees are going to be.

I know who two of my Knitters' Chick nominees are going to be.

I've decided that being able to knit, but only for a little bit at a time, is almost as bad as not being able to knit at all.

I can only knit from pre-wound balls of yarn, as I can't use a swift or hand-wind any.

I wonder what adventures the Travelling Scarf is having. . .

Do you remember my Hershel?


Delightfully, the woman who makes them has given one to Scott Wilson.
This is beyond way cool.

  1. Do you know if you will be getting exercises to do, or any PT that will help your hand? When I had nerve damage in my ankle from a surgery, I know that they gave me exercises to do to get my range of motion, etc. back. It was slow, but eventually it was pretty much back to normal.

    I need to write down any nominees I think of for the Knitters' contests. I always have someone in mind, and then once the contest starts, I draw a total blank!

  2. The Traveling Scarf is at my house. I finished knitting the parts I wanted last night, and now I am weaving in ends. It was trapped here for many weeks because I suck at knitting with two needles -- I kept losing one. At one point it stayed lost for A MONTH! But the scarf will be moving on in the next few days (tomorrow, if I happen to drive into town). TS is very colorful in a tasteful, organized way. Pictures on my blog soon.

Cold Shoulders

There were 589 stitches!  They were the beginning of this: It's the Superior Waves Shawl from Willow Yarns.  This is one of the kits Kathy was asking about the other day.
Speaking of which, here are this week's questions: Sure sign of Springs: bugs.  Has anything bitten you yet? No, though the carpenter bees are back flying around the bench on the front porch. Do you knit for practice?  I don't mean for gauge;  for a stitch pattern? If I have, I don't remember. Have you tried One Touch Latte for your coffee? Not a coffee drinker. Have you seen or tried Persi laundry detergent? I'd never heard of it 'til now. When was the last time you wore one of your own handknits? Over the weekend --- some socks made from Noro.
If the waves shawl weren't keeping me busy enough, I'm also working on 28's Cousin 53.  I'm making it out of yarn that will turn purple when I wear it in the sun. What will they think of next?

Hmmm?

Yesterday would have been my mother's 88th birthday.  I don't say that looking for sympathy --- it's just that the arithmetic surprised me.  Then I realized that next year, my husband would have been 70.  That is hard to get my mind around.
The shades-of-blue feather and fan shawl (the 589-stitcher) had to go into the "Maybe Another Day" file.  Somewhere along the way, I lost the pattern stitch and couldn't fix it without frogging way, way back.  It's irritated me to no end, but there really wasn't anything else to do.
Something occurred to me the other day.  If this is already being done, I didn't know, so I'm not trying to steal anyone's thunder.  You know those cake/cocoa/cookie mixes in a jar? Why couldn't that be done with yarn "cakes"?  


Babes

Hooray;  baby giraffe has arrived! Next to his parents, he looks almost like a toy, but when you put him next to anything else, you realize his size.  He's already taller than me: 5'9".
There's a naming contest for him.  I submitted "Reveille," as his arrival trumpeted us all awake yesterday.  That came to me as I was tumbling names around in my head.  His sire's name is Oliver, which, backward --- revilo --- brought Reveille to mind.
Babies are also front and center knitting-wise.  Two people in my orbit are expecting --- one having a boy, the other a girl.  I'm going with basics just now --- burp cloths, wash cloths, etc.  There's a little time yet in both pregnancies, so there's time to decide on the fancier things.  This is my first knitwear model, now waiting to be a big brother.  Time does fly.
