It is warmer today (33 degrees!!) and rain is in the forecast. It is supposed to go up to 53 and I've already received texts and e-mails regarding potential flooding for the area. It has been - and continues to be - a roller coaster of a winter.
This week has definitely seen more unraveling than I've done in a long, long time.
- First up the Brookline Socks (free pattern on Ravelry) that Dee and I started knitting on Saturday did not work.
- Then I tried a sockhead cowl - somehow I messed that up as well.
- Next I picked different yarn and started Gladys socks (another freebie on Ravelry). That did not work.
- I had woken from a nap on Monday dreaming that I was doing some cross stitch so I pulled out several small pieces "in progress" to work on. Last night I looked at the first and found a mistake I had made (long, long ago). Ended up cutting that out of the linen.
Bottom line: I need to LISTEN to the yarn. My blue yarn with flecks of copper (Madtosh I believe) does not want to be a cowl. My red yarn does not want to be socks. So last night, using the red yarn, I cast on for a sockhead cowl. Hopefully this one will cooperate!! I've brought it to work and am looking forward to a nice lunch time (raw veggies and a little cheese) with knitting.
On the reading front I have not been doing much. I'm still reading "As Bright as Heaven" and enjoying it...but haven't picked it up for several days. Last night I started reading "Where the Crawdads Sing" on my Kindle...but I had only read 3 pages or so and my eyes began to close.
That's where I am this Wednesday - joining in with Kat and friends. What are you up to?
