I like my Walter Mitties. They were short and sweet to make: an evening each. These are my Dog Walking mittens and they are just plain BSODL(tm) 8ply. They are not pretty, the top shaping is just 2 rows of K2togs and then it is all gathered in. They are utilitarian rather than fashionable.They are different sizes. The left is 6 rows longer than the right. I think if I make the shorter one longer I can get away without a button: I did wonder how you would undo the buttons if both your hands were still encased?? I Test Wore them today even though it wasn't cold enough and they went gangbusters!!
The top version is longer and seems to stay together quite well. The bottom one? Not so much....
I haven't been so gangbusters myself. One of the drugs I've started taking again gave me boogelly side effects. Last time I didn't have any. This time I had swollen gums, mouth ulcers, nausea, painful and swollen joints, muscles and soft tissue and to top it all off, fatigue!! How ironic is that?? My other numbers were excellent but I still needed to sleep for seventeen hours on several occasions. Luckily it's not a vital drug and so I had a little rest from it and I am taking it again in the evening and only one or two tablets instead of four. My specialist is very nice and he lets me decide for myself. I was going so well, and then I got all apathetic and couldn't enthuse myself enough to blog. I HAVE answered all my comments. (I hope) Thank you for your lovely kind words!!
Here are The Labradors, all settled in for the evening and having a lovely sleep. It is a couch full of Love. I am very lucky that MrsDrWho's family entrusted some new green comfy armchairs to me and so I have somewhere to sit when The Labradors take over. Auntie and Uncle Dutch and Uncle Electric brought the chairs and Uncle Electric took Mrs FancyPants the sewing machine away with him to play with and see if it might work. I hold out no hope: not that I don't have the utmost confidence in him, but I fear the Power of A Cup of Tea might defeat even his skills.
Peri, Gilly and Harki look after me very well, even if sometimes the lounge room looks like The Godfather III. Well, the horses were only $1-50 each!!
Consequently not much has been happening. MrsDrWho and I saw Star Trek. Twice. The first time at 4pm on the first day with only four other people in the cinema. Fantastic. The second time on the next Monday night where the whole row behind us not only talked all the time, but had every crinkly and crushy paper encased food known to man. And they crinkled and crushed their way through the entire film. We were glad we had seen it in peace the first time. I loved it, it was fabulous and wonderful and amusing and everything a film should be. In fact I would go so far as to say the best Trek film. I am so brave, but hey, you have to move with the times: I give you Doctor Who as evidence.
I met my Imaginary Internet Friend but I am not going to write about it until she does, it only seems fair.
Finally, MrsDrWho and I reverted to about age sixteen and there were more elbows than in a whole season of Friends and more squeals than a piglet party when we watched Captain Tightpants in Castle. Oh my, it was good, kind of Moonlighting meets Remington Steele meets, oh according to the information, meets The Rockford Files. We even refrained from watching it on Sunday night and I went to MrsDrWho's for tea on Monday and we watched it. Twice.
So, I am laying paving stones on the road to Hell and will be back to post again soon!!
