In the past week and a half, I have become homeless. I am housesitting while my two homeless cats still live at my old apartment, thanks to the kindness of my roommate.
Meanwhile, I spent (almost) all of my free time in the past ten days packing my life into a storage unit. The effort has been largely successful – not only am I living out of suitcases, but I still have space in the unit for leftovers.
And, during my breaks from the 90+ degree heat (aside: did anyone else hear on NPR that some physiologist spent time in a 220-degree Fahrenheit chamber and there were no negative effects?), I wound my lovely Koigu Kersti yarn and came up with this:
Since the weekend and beginning Little Majolica, and losing the pattern to my teal cardigan, which is still missing, I can’t stop working on this pattern – it’s addictive! And, it makes me very antisocial – I went to two knitting groups this week, and either couldn’t talk or couldn’t knit!
I forgot to take a photo of the back, which looks eerily like tarantulas. You can see the lines between the green leaves and the outer line of the medallion where I secured my floats, and on the back they look like spider legs. I’ll post tomorrow … I think the little indentations will go away when I block the finished piece.
