I haven’t posted much in a while apart from random drive-by quiz results, have I?
I expect to have some photos shortly; I’m in a crunch trying to finish up some gifts, doilies for my mom and my mother-in-law. The one for MIL is done already apart from blocking, but it’s itty-bitty. That’s what she wanted, a tiny little doily, but I’m hoping to make a matching one in a bigger size to go along with it. Right now I’m about a third or so into my mom’s doily. I’d wanted to make a bunch of snowflakes to send to various family members, too, but that didn’t really work out.
Partly I’m so late with finishing gifts and not getting as many made as I’d have liked because my hands were/are bothering me (current status: not bad at all today, though my knuckles still have been swelling up randomly). And partly because I’m having a major back pain episode and the one position that’s comfortable to sit in is murder on my neck if I try to crochet too long sitting like that.
(Anyone want some cheese to go along with that whine?)
I’m noticing that my status bars over there haven’t been updated for so long that they don’t actually bear much relation to what I’m working on these days. I’ll try to remember to do WIP Wednesday this week. But mainly I’m doing the doilies, and after those I’m going to get back to some other projects, like lining the purse that’s otherwise finished and finishing up the Seraphina shawl, which I could totally use because, well, holy early winter, Batman! It’s cold here!
And I’m trying to decide what to do with the felting yarn Lori sent me. I’ve been browsing around looking at various patterns but haven’t been able to settle on anything yet. I’ve thought about doing some felted mittens—I saw a great-looking pattern somewhere and bookmarked it. They looked so lovely and warm. But I’m thinking that for a first attempt at felting (and in a front-loading washer at that) it might be best if I did something where size isn’t critical, like a bag. If anyone has suggestions, I’d love to hear them!
And now for some quiz results! Seen at various blogs, but I can’t remember whose offhand.
You’re a scientific intellectual.
