After an epic drying session my Vitamin C cardigan is finally read to have ends woven in and photos to be taken. So what happens? I get ill. Of course. So instead, enjoy this rubbish photo of yet another project I can’t reveal yet (same as previous one but worked in sock yarn instead of 4-ply)
And my progress on the mystery crochet fingerless gloves.
Sorry for the lack of proper posts and still no commenting from me. Things are still a little rough. But, I’m still here and still crafting and at least that’s something.
A finished object! From … searches Ravelry … AUGUST?!?! Well, at least it’s August 2011!
In-out-in-out, you shake it all about!
Mojo Mitts in the remnants of the Zauberball I used for my Serpentine Socks (with a little help from another yarn for the thumbs).
And another FO, this time from January of this year. Positively on time.
Evenstar Mitts designed by audm and made in King Cole Anti-tickle Merino.

And finally, a work in progress!
I'm a hooker!
Clue 1 complete and Clue 2 on first glove covered up to prevent spoilers.
These are the Mystery Crochet Fingerless Gloves being done as part of the March CAL on the Fingerless Gloves Fanatics group on Ravelry. I’ve found my people …
Personal stuff: I’ve been to see my GP and she’s put me back on a low dose of my previous happy pills to try and sort the withdrawal symptoms out. So far, I’m like Tigger in comparison to my Eyore of last week.
One day at a time …
As far as simple scarves go, I rather like this one!
I wanted a cotton scarf I could wear when it was cool enough to need a scarf but too warm for a wool one. I was in Purl City Yarns in March and Audrey M was knitting a headband in a cotton yarn which held it’s texture beautifully. It was this yarn I thought of when I wanted a scarf.
Note: Clearly this is neither Friday nor indeed Sunday but since I spent more of Sunday asleep than awake, I decided to give myself a break and publish this today (Monday)
This was supposed to be Four for Friday but Housework happened and by the time I’d stopped whirling around it was dark and I was shattered!
So, here goes:
Two internet-friends have given me concern in the last week. 2Paw with her hospital stay and Denise‘s partner and his not-a-mystery-any-more-but-still-very-serious illness. It’s at times like these that I wish I lived close enough to physically help but all I can do is offer good vibes.
2. The Blooming KAL shawl.
Did I mention this before? Yes, I did.
Anyway, this is clues 1 and 2 completed.
3. The Corelli CAL.
Still slogging away on clue 1. Apparently crocheting lace-weight yarn on a 3mm hook is slow-going for me. Clue 3 came out on Friday!
4. Black yarn in February? Genius!
Also, Lazy Weekend Sweater, my eye!
5. Wash cloth!
Thanks to H3Dakota for the yarn-in-exchange-for-Jelly-Babies cotton I’m going to make a stack of face cloths/wash cloths for my mum’s birthday.
This one is the DW Cloth in Peaches ‘n’ Cream.
So … stay safe, stay in school and … don’t do drugs.
A stop-gap blog post before the Watershed FO and a stop-gap craft while I recover a little.
What’s a girl to do when she’s recovering from being unable to speak for a couple of hours or being unable to move properly?*
Triple-strand some DK-weight yarn, grab a 10 mm hook and start a lap blanket for her mum, of course!
The hideous irony of having a hidden disability and chronic illness is no-one but my immediate family have ever seen me at my worst. Even my neighbour has only seen me on the up-swing (or down-swing).
To conclude: my life sucks, but it could be worse.
*Turns out it was the combination of a very good painkiller and another ear infection (ugh, those are so 2010). Photos of my Watershed when my neck is less WWE wrestler-sized.
