I feel like I’ve been going round in circles the past two weeks. round and round and round. In all facets of my life- work, home, craft- I’ve felt like I’m in a holding pattern. At work I’ve been writing a report (write, read, review, update and repeat). At home I’ve been knitting sleeves. Welcome to Sleeveland.
The second sleeve on my Emilie cardi is well under way. I am still deciding on sleeve length- three quarter or full- so the first sleeve has been set aside while I knit the second. I will need to change to a new skein for the ribbing and am expecting dyelot issues, so how far I get with the original sleeve skeins will probably determine the length. That, and how bored and frustrated I get. I just need to finish the thing and move on!
There was a brief side-trip from Sleeveland. A day trip, if you will, to Hatsville.
Ollie’s favourite teacher at daycare is going on maternity leave next week. She’s been wonderful with my littlest boy, and he has thrived in her care. I didn’t have much time, but little hats don’t take long. I used tosh dk in fragrant, leftover from a tea leaves cardigan last year. It’s a perfect pink, pretty but not too plastic. Today we braved painting, and Ollie made a card to go with it.
Ollie really really enjoyed the painting.
