I started the sixth Alien face today and what happens just after I complete half the face I run out of green wool, I still have some black left but not enough to complete the scarf so before I can finish it I'll have to buy more yarn.
It's a good thing Spotlight are having a sale on yarn then.
My mum come home from the hospital today and seems to be feeling much better. I can't say the same for the rest of us, i.e ME! She wanted a poached egg for dinner and in the process I burnt some of my fingers on the steam off of the boiling water. Ouch! But a quick dunk under some cold water and there much better.
Better enough for me to work on the only other knit project I have with me. My Voodoo wrist warmers. I'm hoping to get up to the thumb hole tonight and then decipher the button hole the pattern uses tomorrow.
I've been doing some reflection on my knitting career to-date. It'll be 2 years in July since I started knitting, and that was only squares!
Here I am now - Illusion knitting, knitting with beads, simple knitting in the round, simple lace knitting and the ordinary every day plain, purl and rib.
Next on the list to acheive - more advanced knitting in the round (maybe a sock or two?), more advanced lace knitting and some of that "picture" knitting. And of course cables! I have used a cable needle, in a bag I knitted - not actual for a cable but for it's clasp and I understand from canle patterns I would be something similar with the cable needle in those projects.
That's all for tonight, I must check on my mother and get back to some knitting!
Until next time,
A bona fide red head and damn proud of it.
