About Me

My photo
Five 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!

Lovely quiet day yesterday.

I did not leave the house. I did not get out of my pajamas. Mostly, I just knitted. I only spoke to one living soul, a brief conversation with Brother Sushi, followed by a quick text message, also to him.

I finished the pink and purple doll hat. I cast on another one in dark neutrals, intending to save the knitting of it for tomorrow, but I was already four rows past the ribbing when I stopped last night. It is set aside for the Sabbath, but it will be one of the first things my hands touch tomorrow morning.

I also cast on for a spiral-knit hat (or possibly just a cowl) in some of my leftover Malabrigo and Manos from my Autumn Asters cardigan of 2009. I’m using the same technique as for the green thingie, which did not see much play after Wednesday morning, when doll hat madness seized me. I’m not sure that I like the color combinations. It may very well get frogged tomorrow.

I finished connecting my printer and charged up my iPod, only to find out that I cannot presently use iTunes, because this dear dinosaur of a computer runs on Windows 2000 5.0, and I need at least XP SP2 (also, ahem, obsolete).

When the going gets tough, the tough eat chocolate. But I did not want to [get dressed and] leave the house, so I baked a pan of brownies in my new LeCreuset casserole and cut them into two dozen bites. Twenty-two of which are now reposing in the fridge.

I have not yet figured out today’s church knitting, and I have a narrow window of time in which to do so, as I need to leave in about 45 minutes to pick up my new friend for church.

Oh well, I do some of my best thinking while in the shower. Have a blessed and peaceful Sabbath.

Not to be bossy or anything but maybe instead of any more dolls, you should upgrade your computer next and then you will be able to play (as well as more easily buy, sell and Etsy) for your dolls. Just saying. You should be able to redo the tower for a couple of hundred bucks.

I can't imagine a day without having to go somewhere. Jealous.
