I fell so hard. So quick. First Reed went down. I usually escape his kid colds. Not this time.
In bed. The sofa. Feeling sub-human. Sick kid. Grouchy husband. Missed most of work this past week, and I haven’t knit a single stitch since last Saturday.
The pits, I say. The pits.
I haven’t been that sick in years. YEARS.
Fear not. I am feeling better. I even did the dishes and two loads of laundry. There is hope yet.
Speaking of which, this is the yarn I plan to knit with this year.
The blue is Quince Sparrow. This will be my first time knitting in linen. I am a bit worried about my hands, but I plan to take it easy and see how it goes. I am going to use it to knit Waterlily by Meghan Fernandes. The pattern does not call for linen yarn, so I hope I don’t regret the substitute. I was aspiring for Quince wool, but my LYS doesn’t stock it. Apparently you have to be a super special yarn store to cary the wools, which I think it is a bit snooty…I am just not a fan of anything remotely exclusive or otherwise not equally available to everyone. …and I wasn’t particularly inspired to order it online…although I am bedazzled by their color pallets. We’ll see how it goes.
The umber-toned Dream in Color worsted Classy is for Katya Frankel’s Kitty’s Chemise. I don’t expect too much drama here, but you just never know. I have knit with Dream in Color fingering before but not the worsted. It was a good value for the yardage.
The pink Swan’s Island fingering is for Polaris by Hiroko Fukatsu. I have knit with Swan’s Island before…I was hoping for a new brand to jump out at me, but no luck…in part because my LYS can only cary so much. All the same, I am looking forward to the knit.
Hopefully I will be knitting again soon!
