There might have been a squeal as the mail boxed opened today. You see, there was a package:
You have to love a colorway that’s called Chim Chim Chimney. Furthermore, each skein is 150 grams, which acknowledges the existence of large feet, and the fact that people use sock yarn for all kinds of projects.
The world got a little brighter today, all the way from Germany. Thank you, Liesel!!!
What’s been on my needles? Well, I’ve been knitting some caps for Socks for Soldiers (very boring), but I’m also knitting a new cardigan of my own design. It’s got texture, a knitted hem, and I’ve plotted some pockets and detail too. Another great yarn, Madelinetosh vintage:
Some other yarn hopped into my online shopping cart a few weeks ago – Ella Rae’s Extrafine Heathers on sale from WEBS – which I’m using for a cardigan for Mom this fall. Not much to report, other than swatching is happening.
On the health front, I can report that my energy is better, although I have continuing headaches and nausea. Finally went to the ER (Alison of spindyeknit will be happy to hear this). Thankfully, no obvious brain injury, instead that along with some other continuing symptoms are likely issues relating to chicken pox virus (but usually happen with shingles – no rash, though). Hey, it’s another two-in-one deal!
So, I’ve got some extra antiviral meds which apparently can help, so I’ll be doing that. We shall see over the weekend!
