I unpacked the nuts and fruit and chocolates.
Oy. Let’s ignore the fact that my cuboards are full and I have no where to store the nuts and fruit and chocolates, ok?
I seamed the Marble cardi. I also ignored the pattern, which wanted me to knit the hood, then pick up and knit the button bands on the two fronts, THEN seam the cardi and sew on the hood. I did a few more mods as well, which I’ll detail when the project is finished.
I also managed to knit the two front bands. By the time I went to bed last night I’d picked up and started working the collar (I’m ignoring the hood).
I would have gotten more done, but Jakob has been sick and I only knit when he’s sleeping, if I’m not already eating, cleaning, doing laundry or staring at the TV in a dazed stupor. The poor kid started a fever on Friday night, and has been going back and forth from 99.5 to 103.3 ever since. Yesterday’s high was 102, today he went from 99.5 when he woke up from his nap to 101.5 2 hours later. I know it’s not as high, but his fevers have been higher at night, so we’re going back to the doctor to make sure his cold didn’t become an ear infection. He’s also got a wicked cough and a runny nose, so when he is awake, he’s kinda miserable. (His waking up around the clock has led to my dazed stupor). I’m sure the doctor will tell me it’s just a cold and to keep him on the tempra, but I’d rather be safe than sorry…especially with a fever that has lasted almost 6 days.
Hopefully by the time I post next I’ll have a completed Marble Cabled Cardigan.
You know what I didn’t do yesterday or Monday? Photograph my booty. (Uh- yarn or otherwise). I know you wanna see the new stash…but I can’t show it to you before I show it to Yannick, and he had bowling last night. Don’t worry…you’ll get photos soon. I still have to finish the rest of the WEBS trip. I haven’t even told you about the diner of freaky thoughts yet!
