Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


So no more for the arm-warmers? Ah, well, I'm sure she'll love the socks....

Take care of yourself - at least sick days mean more fiber time!

Nah - she can have both. She's not just any GF, she's LD's GF.

Lawsey! I had no idea I had this many clothes. When will I ever get to go shopping again!?! It looks like my knitting stash. Oh lord. What if all that were spun and knit up. Then think of how many clothes I’d have. It took all my energy to just get them out of the attic. Now they’re lying on the bed in LD’s old room, a mountain of brown cream and rust and tan and orange with a little red thrown in here and there. Mostly wool but some corduroy and some sort of rayon/polyester/acrylic/wool blends - though very little of that. And a pile of turtlenecks. Looks like there’s plenty of shoes too.

I didn’t try anything on - too tired. I did get lots of laundry washed and about half of it folded and put away. So, over the next few weeks I’ll sort through the heaps and winnow out what I don’t want any more. There’s already a pile on the floor that goes to goodwill - including LD’s high school winter coat. I certainly am a pack rat.

My horoscope kept promising me that there was $$ in my future but I suppose it was talking about in-kind wealth, since neither of my knitting classes made up, the only source I have for extra play money. Anyway, I’ve got some treasure hunting to do in the spare bedroom.

I got in some nice knitting on BriccaTheAran and started a little slip-stitch design on GF’s Christmas socks. They are being knit from the stash - happy thought - part of the sock of the every other month collection. I had planned on knitting her some arm warmers, since she said she wanted some (no accounting for the taste of youth - I think their weird - but she has the panache to pull it off) and I found a pattern for a pair with a little cable design on the back of the hands. I am thinking pink cashmere, since she’s one of those white blondes and she’s definitely a cashmere sort of girl. Ha! She is also a September baby AND an ENFP! Hmmm. Maybe pink cashmerino with crystal beads in the cable twists.

Tonight is Tuesday Night Knitters. It will be good to see my knitting buds and L promised to bring back Scarf Style - she had checked it out while I was on vacation. In return, I’m taking her my copy of Sweaters from Camp, with the written instructions for the crocheted steek in it.

My throat is still not doing what it should - getting well, that is - and I will talk to my dr. today. Maybe go see him, maybe he can just advise over the phone. Otherwise, this is a busy, rather pleasant, but predictable week, even if the stars tell me it’s going to be full of surprises.
