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!

Good Sabbath!

Mine was great, thanks! Notwithstanding the schedule change, which complicated how much and when to eat before leaving for church, our meetings and classes were exactly what I needed today. I didn't have to eat the cheese sticks that I popped into my bag, nor the nut bar (you are what you eat, right?).

I've made and remade the front yoke of the doll tabard at least four times, and (I think) I'm finally done. All that remains is to bind off eight stitches on the waistband ~ why I didn't do them en masse before starting the back, I can't say ~ weave in the ends, pick out buttons (decorative) and sew snaps (functional), and I can call it done.

I'm tempted to cast on another one, just to polish off the yarn. And then I want to design another one in laceweight to go with the neckties that I bought the other night.

Five days until I can pay off my Adela.
