I have a head cold. I am feeling unwell and as soon as this entry is finished I will be making some chicken soup. for my soul.
Last night’s knitting revealed three mis-crossed cables on the front on Boar’s vest. Argh! And they are way back at the beginning. double argh!! Before my nasal passages seized up I anticipated a lovely blog post where the magic of fixing this would be revealed, almost like a Cirque du Soleil of fiber. Instead I will simply direct your attention to Cara’s tutorial and say that this is what I am going to do. Just imagine green yarn and three cables. I don’t know if I will do this today – only if my eyes uncross.
Speaking of Lil Camper …. let me take a moment to torture her a bit. Have you been over to The Shower blog lately? lots of great and wonderful things are happening over there. Go check it out and come back here to leave mysterious comments designed to drive her crazy. It will take her mind off her nausea and she will be grateful for the distractions. Really, it will be good for her.
Despite Christmas just being a week behind us, I am not so big a person to have any shame in saying that I want one of these. listen to the demo – you will love it. I only want The Sir version. And while I’m on the subject of my avarice, I would also like some of these. I bet if I had those I would never mis-cross a cable again.
I have a birthday at the end of this month. Mr. Boar has been informed of all of the above. I will also send him links to this post and further reminder notices.
Subtlety is wasted on Mr. Boar.
