By some miracle, I’ve ended up in Round 2 of the Knit Off, and the pattern comes out Sat am. In a moment of sheer bad luck, I’m paired off against the fastest knitter from round one bar none. Hopefully Paula just kicks my tush, rather than trashes me so soundly it’s embarassing. If the gods of fate are shining, perhaps she’ll.. uhh.. sleep through the pattern release and it’ll be lace and.. yeah. It’s an honour to be in the top 16. Really.
Knitting my face off will be a nice change in stress from my Gryphcon stress. It’s about this time every year that I swear up and down and left and right that I will never do this again. Ever. It might even stick this year.
I have, however, been knitting. The flare up in my elbow has eased to a dull roar (just in time to see the specialist.. aint that always the way), so I’ve got a pair of mini doilies unblocked and a sock at the heel. We’re going picture lite today so close your eyes. Picture a blob of pink crochet cotton. That’s one doily. Now picture a blob of yellow cotton. That’s the other doily. Remember the sock from here? Well picture the second one down at the heel. See? It’s good to exercise your imagination and not rely on photos all the time!
