Fall MUST be on the way. It seems two things always happen at my house when fall is upon us.
The first one, not so pleasant - Sofee slips into the throes of allergy woe. She's there. I gave in and gave her some of her prednisone yesterday. She's miserable, and I am too. I worry so what the medications may be doing "to" her rather than "for" her. Luckily I can usually keep the edge off, which is the goal, with as few as 8 or so pills the entire season. Course, even that is 8 more than I'd like to give her. I also hate to watch her suffer though. It's no fun either way.....
The other is my annual "use up the scraps on kid's mitten" urge. This year I wanted to use up some hand-spun scraps. I could make a hundred mittens, as many bits and bobs of yarn that I have, but I fear my attention span is too short. For now, 4 pair are enough.
Speaking of handspun yarns..... I just prepped my next fiber project. I think I will start spinning for another pair of colorwork mittens.
Oh, and the colorblock shawl from the previous post - it's toast. Sorry Stephen.....the love was just not there. I have seen some lovely renditions, so it's not the pattern's fault - just my color selection was not the best. Anyway - be thee gone! (Life is too short!).
Thanks to all of you who have actually been reading this blog and leaving such kind comments. :) I do soooo appreciate it!
Wooo Hooo - two posts in the same week! I do believe I am on a roll.......
