If you are reading this, we survived the Mayan Calendar Snafu/Thingy/Apocalypse (I tried to spell that Apocalyspe. Well, can you understand what they say?) And, if you haven’t already, check out my tut from yesterday for a cute idea.
I am still finishing things. Have two more “Christmas” items to make and then done. Keep adding to my list as the month goes by. One is another of the items I showed yesterday. The other is BIL’s Fuzzy Feet.
First up: Brambles. Love this hat. I was so sure it was not going to be very big, knitting worsted on a size 4US and 6US makes for dense fabric in cables and ribbing. But once it soaked, man it bloomed. It is now the slouch I was going for. The pattern is from knitty.com, so head over and print it out. You will love the finished product.
Looks good enough to eat, like a pie.
Hopefully I will remember to take a photo of it after gifting Sunday night. This is for my cousin’s wife, we share our birthdate in Jan. We have known each other all our lives and my entire family was so happy when he proposed to her! Just love her.
And this next FO is causing a dilemma. I finished this Wednesday night and laid it out to block. During the wee hours of Thursday morning I awoke, had trouble sleeping all night*. So I went out to the couch to play on my new iPhone. While reading FB I was reminded of a friend who was having surgery that morning. A thought popped into my head, a cue from God, that she needed the just finished Caireen! Something to wrap up in and feel the love. Now, the selfish side of me is warring with this notion. But, but, I just finished it and I love it. The color, the design, all of it. I tried to reason, it’s such an odd piece, she probably wouldn’t care for it. Would she even feel comfortable wearing it.
I am to deliver soup to her tomorrow. I will either talk myself into it/out of it/or ignore it all together. I do know that I can make her something else and knit love and prayers into as I go. She has had such a hard year. And make her something I am more positive she would use. I guess I will look at what’s on the list of doable with the stash on hand. Plus, the Nature Spun is not the softest yarn of all. I would prefer to make her something that is soft and cushy! Something she would want to snuggle into.
*Dr visits on Wednesday revealed I have 4 fibroids in my nether regions. And a very thick, double the norm, lining. So, the Ablation that I really didn’t want to do is a must. Still waiting for the new year for the lung specialist. I hate feeling tired because my oxygen levels are low! Or coughing every time I try to inhale with gusto. This getting old stinks! And another year will be added in less than a month. Oh well, just happy to be here, so I will put up with the small inconveniences.
