Don’t like that pun? How about:
Ship to Shawl?
Thanks for the comments on my three-FOs-in-formation posts. I’m really glad I’d drafted them earlier because I’ve had one heck of a week health-wise (see tl;dr at end of post).
So, in between feeling sorry for myself and having things stuffed into my ears, what have I been up to?
Spinning and then winding yarn off my spindle.
Like my high-tech solution? Mini M&M tube supplied by H3Dakota. Mysteriously the chocolate didn’t survive long after arriving. :strokes chin: Curious…
I mentioned in my last ordinary-service post about starting two shawls designed by Romi. Well, I have done!
First up is Sakaki (the shawl in support/memory of the Japan earthquake and tsunami) using Mean Girls Yarn Club Run Amok (merino sock yarn)
Second is Taygete (in another MGYC called Baby Melter and Xen’s Capability):
Hmm…. stripes …
Both yarns are merino/cashmere/nylon so there’s a very soft halo to the finished fabric. Yummy!
Lets keep this brief since I’m sure you’re all as bored of my ears as I am but Sunday I collapsed (in an elegant way, I might add) probably due to low blood sugar, Monday I had headache all day (unusual for me), Tuesday was very bad and I had a full-on M.E.-crash and Wednesday I had my right ear stuffed with iodine-soaked ribbon gauze. Less fun than it sounds.
I’m now on a 1-a-day antibiotic (scary!) which warns you against going out in the sun lest you get a rash. Typical.
I’ll be back after the double-bank-holiday-I’m-trying-to-pretend-isn’t-happening, hopefully with some more shawl progress!
