It’s been super-windy here. Luckily we didn’t lose power but lots of folks did. There are trees down in several places including a few more in beautiful Stanley Park. I kept hearing thumps and bumps on the house but apart from small branches from my neighbour’s fir trees across the street everything seems to be fine. It was a wild near-hurricane strength ride while it was happening!
Meanwhile inside Zombie Plague Mansion, I’ve been continuing to take it relatively easy. T-Man did a yeoman job of taking care of things for his extended weekend (he had Friday off) but back to work today meant that I was on my own. Happily I felt a wee bit more energised so I was able to keep myself in tea and food but still didn’t try to do much more than that. You know when you have a fantasy of having lots of time just to laze around and knit and read all day? I’m here to tell you it gets old really fast! I demand to know where my energy went. I want it back. Now. I never thought this could happen, but I’m getting bored!
In crafty news, I started another Ten Stitch Blanket even though I’m not finished the first one yet. T-Man liked the look of mine and decided that he could use one too. It’s not like I don’t have more sock yarn scraps! As a matter of fact, a lot of the darker ones (many of which went into his own socks) are still unused. Here’s the beginning bit:
Somehow that came out a little lighter than reality. I’m still learning my new camera. I needed a more portable project than my first blanket is now. It’s a little brighter as well. Here’s what it looks like so far:
It’s nearly a yard square so it’s hard to get it all in the photo! I want to do about 4 or 5 more rounds at least to make it a good-sized lap blanket. It’s surprisingly easy to do even though you have to turn the work every 10 stitches. This one is big enough to lay over my knees and I only need to turn just the little section I’m knitting on. Stashbuster, lap-warmer and knitting project all in one!
Sorry. Nothing else exciting to talk about today.
