Picture post! Since I’m at home on a self-imposed day-in-bed to counter my sickness and subsequent desire to clean everything in sight when I am home, I am sitting quietly, drinking rooibos, reading articles and trying to finish some concocted cuffs (see below) to get off to mom in time for Mother’s Day with the care package I need to send her.
This also means I can finally picture post. So here goes!
The two remaining skeins and one ball not being used yet from my first attempt at hand-painting wool. Very chuffed (and forgive, my camera does funny things…)
The one ball of hand-painted wool already knitted up in a Cheat’s Lace Scarf, and another ball recently attached.
My finished fetching gloves, before I washed them – the Silkroad DK Aran washed beautifully too.
And my Mom’s Cuffs concoction so far. Will post photos as the pattern progresses.
Anyway, it was a weekend of house hunting and Aldi store discovery. And also rest. But now, I need more tea and to stop procrastinating and finish this article!
