Dyed in the Wool
A dyed-in-the-wool knitter shares mainly fibre-related information, updates and musings (with the occasional moan about the weather!).

Small scratch

Thursday, August 24, 2006
EDIT: Apparently, Internet explorer doesn't like my new fangled left align thing with the pictures. [insert weeping here]

bruises Well, I couldn't very well say little prick, could I? Oops! Well, that bruise is the result of have four (or was it three?) vials of blood taken for a battery of tests. Yes, my good people I finally have a consultant! Woo hoo - happy dance! This neurologist is only the second specialist I've seen in fourteen years of being ill. The first one was a paediatritian. That's how long ago it was!

Knitting?

Bonny Charms 24-08-06Bonny Charms is moving apace and I'm now on the armhole bit of the back. Have I mentioned that there's an error in the chart in the magazine, and the numbers you end up with after the ribbing don't add up to a full repeat.


Blob yarnThis is the HORRENDOUSLY ORANGE YARN I got to do the arigu.. agium.. those wee Japanese crocheted thingys. All I have to do is teach myself to crochet and how to design those crocheted doll-things. Easy. Right?


SSS 24-08-06 2Snake Skin socks have been started and put down frequently. The pattern is fairly easy to remember, but it's just finding the time and energy to work on them.

Science news round-up:

o:Etna ready to go "Boom!"
o:Is the Liang Bua "Hobbit" really a new species?
o: Cows have regional accents!

SCORE!

library booksI love the library! Clockwise from top left: Sew Basic, Sashiko, M.E., Scottish Highlands and Islands, Making Knitwear Fit and 2oth Century Fashion.

  • Are those "Snakes Skines on a Plane Socks?" Okay, you can smack me; that was really bad.

  • Neurologists are fun, but my favorite is my endocrinologist. Talk about bloodwork!

  • P.S. The cows down here say, "Moo y'all". Accents indeed ;-)

  • That is seriously orange yarn! The baby sweater is comming on a treat - and don't worry about the socks - I still haven't finished my second one despite the flying start.
