I think I’ve caught the bug that M caught from J (her boss). Joy. We knitter’s certainly know how to share, eh? I’ve currently living off of hot tea. I love ginger tea. And the electric kettle. It’s nearly my salvation right now. I admit that I am a complete wuss when it comes to having a sore throat. But, in my defense, it’s a result of having Scarlet Fever a few years ago – since then I kinda freak out whenever my throat swells up.
Umm, lemme see, I’ve had a request or two for piccies of the duck I gave to the Harlot, so here they be…
I completely stole the pix from Emmos’ blog, and there’s been a slight mix-up –
the shawl is made of Egyptian cotton, not cashmere.
I have made no progess on the IYP3 sox, alas, having spent all night cursing the crockpot and One Shot dyes. But, I think I can get them done today, and everything sent off to their respective desitinations.
My mother’s and brother’s birthdays are in two weeks (Sept 21 & 22), so I need to get a move on those projects. Mum’s lace shawl is coming along – and I think she has no idea that I’m making it for her (mwahaha). But, I have absolutely no fricking idea what to make for my brother. No idea whatsoever. Any suggestions? I was going to make him sox, but he’s weird about sox. And he likes for everything to be soft. Maybe just a hat. Crimeny.
Blast… I’m about to run out of tea. Need to put the kettle on.
