Watercolor blotter paper as I did not have permission to share creations this round!
While we were in the depths of our sickness the house was pretty quite. Once we were a bit more coherent I allowed a documentary. Usually a no TV while sick rule applies, but I was sick too and taking care of little people sickness while you are sick too... well, that is a stretch! And that documentary is one of my favorites. If it is not going to be Sir David Attenborough then I love to hear Dr. Iain Stewart. What can I say, I am sucker for smart nature lovin' guys with accents. I mostly listened along while laying on the couch with the girl!
While making dinner last night I listened to this.
After dinner I headed out to the porch swing for some knitting. As I stitched and listened to the wild turkeys a not so funny thing happened.
I broke my needle!
There you have it. My suspicions confirmed. I am knitting a bit too tight with these little tiny needles!
I had serious thoughts of ditching this little project. But they passed quickly and I hopped up to get my set of double pointed size 2 needles.
I snapped the picture above and started knitting again, transferring stitches over to the double pointed as I went.
Gobble, Gobble... from the field below!
Funny the way things work. After a few rounds I am finding that I like these needles better. My stitches have loosened up (don't want to think about what this is doing for gauge right now... bury head in sand) and I am enjoying this knitting more now than before!
There you have it!
We are well and making and listening again...
What have you been making?
What is on your play list?
Please do share!
