I had some sort of mysterious bug this weekend and was home sick from work yesterday. So what to do when I don’t have the energy or stamina to move? Knitting. Miles and miles of knitting.
I made enormous progress on the loathed shawl, subject of my recent Ode to a Project That Just Won’t End. I wish it were elegiac poetry. I’m almost done with the last lace section. Only four more repeats to go. If I had the energy I’d be dancing for joy.
As a reward for working on the shawl all morning and most of the afternoon, I allowed myself to work on the Gemini top in the evening. My needles flew. I knitted nearly 10 inches of that baby while watching reruns of Grey’s Anatomy. (I have a weakness for TV serials when I’m sick. Usually it’s something like Buffy or How I Met Your Mother.) What a relief to be working on something different and something in a thicker yarn. My last few projects have all been in fine yarns, sock weight or lighter. One forgets how quickly a project can go when the yarn is helping you along.
I don’t have any project photos to show you. What I do have is a couple of pretty photos I took to cheer myself up.
