I feel icky
And Beau does too. He looked so sad in his little bed last night that I took a picture just to prove it. Doesn't he look sad and a little under the weather? I know I feel like he looks, achy head, stuffed up nose and ears, and a sore throat. I've had two cups of tea this evening and I think I need a third. ** That is his pillow and blanket. He just happened to be in a position that I could cover him with the blankie to get the picture. :)
I did manage to get a bit of knitting done this weekend. I finished up this scarf from Victorian Lace Today, but haven't blocked it yet. Better pictures when I do finally get it blocked. I used Alpaca With a Twist laceweight leftover from Grandma's Scribble shawl. I went down a needle size from the suggested and used a US 6 for the body and a US 4 for the border. I had some trouble with the edging as I apparently can't read the corners correctly. I fudged it since this is just a practice piece.
If you're keeping track, this meant that I only had one project on the needles, my sweater. Instead of working on my sweater, I promptly cast on for something else for me. Gloves! Then I went and finished them since I'm feeling icky and didn't want to leave my chair.
Yarn: Scout's Swag, Appletini, ? yardage, 100% wool
Needles: US 1 Britanny Birch DPNs
Pattern: Ann Budd's Handy Book of Patterns (slightly modified to fit my hand better)
Of course, I now only have the sweater on the needles again, but I'm about to remedy that. I'm going to cast on toe-up socks for Will in the Ebony Fleece Artist, and another lace weight shawl in the next day or two. I may not be up to posting in the next few days, but I'll try my best. :)
