The green blob is my mum’s top-down raglan cardigan (in my nemisis, chunky cotton chenille) and the red-tweed blob is my Cerisara cardigan.
I’m working both sleeves on the Chenille cardigan simultaneously in an attempt to shorten my misery (I love my mum but I really hate this yarn). I have approximately 300g of yarn remaining and I wasn’t sure how much the sleeves would eat up, so I’ve put the body of the cardigan on hold (well, on dental tape actually).
The Cerisara sleeve is going swimmingly if not exactly rapidly.
That’s all the crafting updates I can give now since that’s all I’ve been working on. Lots of UFOs (UnFinished Objects) laying around and lots of PFOs (Planned Finished Objects) but just the two active projects.
So apart from being crook, I’m fine!
I saw my GP on Wednesday (obviously I sounded sufficiently ill over the phone because she fitted me in despite not having an appointment) and she said my ear infection was back plus I have viral infection in my throat/glands.
Since I seem to have recurrent infections and I haven’t had any blood work since they computerised the system in 2006, I was pricked on Friday. The words “high blood sugar” and “diabetes” may have been mentioned and to be honest I’ve been a little worried. I’m bracing myself for the “it’s because you’re fat” lecture.
Of course the irony of all this is that I eat a low-fat, low-sugar, mostly organic vegetarian diet high in fibre. Maybe I should start eating massive cakes and bleeding slabs of meat?
Happier, less gross stuff:
I can’t decided between the purple yarn or the golden yellow yarn for a small shawl by Romi called Maia (from the 7 Small Shawls to Knit ebook) . I’m leaning towards the yellow (even though it’s not a colour I would normally wear) because the sample was knit in it. I mustn’t be well; choosing to knit something in the same weight and colour of yarn as the pattern.
I need to lie down!
