I don't know why I endlessly complain about being tired : you would think I would be over it now!! I am going to be tired, with slight episodes of less tiredness, forever!! I think I complain mainly because it stops me doing the things I want to do.
It has not stopped me sewing up Bolshoi, however, and I am wearing it with my pyjamas right now at 3-45pm. It is a 'look' if I ever saw one!!! At least everything I am wearing is green, so I'm 'teaming with the theme'. Bolshoi is very nice though when I make it again I shall make some changes. I already decided not to knit the sleeves 49cm long, thank goodness. My arms are not short, but the cuffs would have covered my hands completely, rendering me a sleevage mutant. I also added a band to the back of the neck. Who thought a raw cast off edge was a good idea???? And because of my inherent 'curviness' I think next time I will decrease the front edge more gradually, so more of my decolletage is covered and warm. Nevertheless, I love my Bolshoi, it onlt took me 16 days to complete. I am going to make a pair of trousers with some Mechanical Stretch in almost the same colour and I will be making a new Bolshoi soon too. I think I might dye some cream Rustic. Ooh I am so brave!!
In the latest Knitscene there is a man's zippy uppy cardigan called Vegemite. Now here in Australia we know and love Vegemite , so I emailed the magazine, explained about Vegemite, and asked why they called the cardigan by that name....They just liked the word!!!!! How very North American Continent of them. Perhaps I should call my next knitted project Philadelphia Cream Cheese!!!!!
It has been raining on and off all day, so the poor Labradors have been stuck inside, they don't want to get wet. Harki has to go back to see Dr Tim, or another doctor, in the morning to have her FlippyFloppy Ears checked. Peri will have to be shut inside and she will be howling piteously.
I might have to venture out to the shops now as I am craving some fresh fruit. I will quickly take some photos, which will be dull due to the cloudy rainy weather. I think The Labradors can have a bone. My new green glasses are here. I shall pick them up now too!! Kismet......
