About Me

My photo
Four years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

Finito!

Juno Regina is finished. [And I am nearly so!] I got a crazier than usual case of finish-itis last night and bound her off about 10:30. She’s marked 100% on Ravelry, but I won’t change the classification to “finished” until she is blocked.

This is where I was when I went to work yesterday morning.



And this is where I was when I went to bed last night.



I celebrated with a small bag of popcorn and the first few chapters of “The Friday Night Knitting Club”. The book my best friend sent me was waiting in the mailbox when I got home last night. I am taking it to work, to read while inhaling my lunch today.

Next on the needles? Swatching Fur Sure with the WOTA and WOTA Bulky. This is the best photo I know how to take of the picture in the book.



I won’t be ordering the yarn before the big paycheck on the 29th. Once I have the calculations done for my KnitPicks order, I’ll start swatching for the Chelsea Silk cardi. I need a large-gauge project to rest my weary fingers.

I read that AARP article you linked about hoarding. Just know that since you have finished this project you are one step further from me coming in and tossing all your yarn and chafing dishes!
