I don’t mean to be silent for extended periods but sometimes I find myself at a loss for what to say.
I’ve been knitting, I’ve been planning more sewing projects, I’ve been getting out a little more (even if it’s only into the garden) and yet I find I’ve a lack of things to talk about.
It’s partly for that reason that I’ve signed up for version 2 of Ten for Tuesday (spied over at Kristi’s blog). I missed this week, which was the reasons for doing TfT, but I’ll start with next weeks suggestion.
I mentioned there had been knitting and here is the proof:
And this is how the sleeve looks
and a comparison to what is probably my most-worn handknit, Sesame
I have managed to finish a rather simple sewn top.
It was a little experiment to see if I could transform a pattern designed for stretch knit to one for a ridged woven. It wasn’t a total success but I’m pleased overall with how it turned out.
I’m not entirely certain when I last gave an update, or what I said, but a quick precise is that as a result of the eczema in my ears I got a fungal infection. This is why the antibiotics didn’t clear it up! My GP put me on some appropriate ear drops and it’s slowly clearing up. I suspect the infection is quite deep seated and so it will take a while to disappear completely.
I’ve also been given the best modern Western medicine can offer to keep my ears free of debris; olive oil.
See you on Tuesday (assuming I remember!)
