It is Friday, right? I'm pretty sure it is but I've been fuzzy for so long now I'm not completely positive.
The Sick has taken hold of my children and I. So far Ben has escaped it, but it's coming.
I hate getting the brain dead colds. The ones where all you do is just sit and stare at walls. I've attempted some knitting, but it's pretty lacking.
Remember this? I started it back in March. It's the 2009 Goddess Knits Mystery Shawl. I got so enthralled in the 2010 shawl that I shoved this one in the closet like a red-headed step child. I think I've finally recovered from my last Big Lace Project (said 2010 shawl) that I can finally look at lace without wanting to stab the knitting needles in my eyes. Funny reaction for someone who really truly loves to knit lace.
I pulled it out at the beginning of the week and then promptly got sick. I've done about 5 rows on it all week. I had originally thought I would rip the whole thing out and redo it on bigger needles since I think it's going to turn out a bit too small. But then I realized that I was on the last clue - which also made me wonder why the heck I didn't just finish it before - and decided that if it's small I'll just call it a "shawlette" or maybe a "kerchief" and it'll be fine.
I've also started another pair of fingerless mitts. Well, to be fair I started them about two weeks ago with a design in mind that really wasn't working. So now I'm simplifying them with a lighter version of the design. I should be nice, easy knitting for those times that I can't do lace (i.e. when my children are anything but asleep).
So what are you all working on this week?
