.... is somethign that I desperately need when it comes to most areas of my life these days.
I had a list of stuff to do today and have achieved very little. I've suffered from severe head aches all week though andit's eased today so taking it a bit easier probably wasn't a bad idea.
Now to todays knitting adventures:
I started the border on my Mum's Victoria Shawl today. The first repeat was a bit awkward and I tensed up (and made the excrusiating headache I woke up with worse) but then managed to relax a bit more. I've done 5 repeats. I was worried about how to join the border to the main rectangle but the instructions make so much more sense when the piece of knitting is actually in front of you. Was a lot easier than I thought. And the first time I've done it. So quite pleased with myself.
I'm still a bit worried about the corner but I'm sure that'll work out okay too. Love the look of the shawl with the border. The main rectangle is quite plain and the border really makes this shawl.
Somehow this afternoon I got distracted (lack of discipline again) and started another sock. Had no plans to start another sock as I've got the 2nd of Emily's new sock pair to do and a pair of top secret socks for a magazine submission to get done. But I was rooting through my sock stash earlier and found this skein of Yarn Yard yarn I'd forgotten about so decided to combine it with another skein of Yarn Yard yarn and look at the result. I quite like it. The foot will be random stripes but the cuff will be different. I've got exciting plans for the cuff but not revealing it yet.
