Cough, cough, splutter splutter

Don’t get too close, you may catch man flu… As I’m not a man you’d have thought I would be immune, unfortunately this hasn’t been the case. Sigh.
Moving onto knitting; after frogging Stonecutter once as I didn’t like the huge holes that were made by the yarn overs and reknitting with increases by lifting the yarn between stitches and knitting into it, I decided I still didn’t like it so frogged again, this time permanently. Despite this I feel I achieved what I wanted to as I completed the first chart – the really hideous looking one – and discovered that it was actually very straight forward, appearances can be quite deceiving don’t you think? So the challenge had been met and I couldn’t honestly see myself wearing it without sneaking a glimpse at the increases and expressing a little humph. The yarn is far too nice for that and deserves better.
Since then I have been in a knitting no man’s land which I hate, I haven’t found anything else that grabs me in that ‘must get my needles out and cast on now!’ kind of way. So I’ve done what I usually do when this mood takes me and have dabbled with a bit of crochet, some spinning and wasting hours looking at looms on the internet (I know, I know, the last thing I need is another textile hobby).
I have been spinning more Jacob yarn and now have four big fat skeins just crying to be used but I just can’t seem to find the right project. It’s a horrible kind of feeling, a kind of ‘floating around and not knowing where the landing strip is’ feeling. Oh well, the only thing for it is to eat cake until the runway presents itself.
On the other hand we have had some fabulous sunrises in the far North.
