'Rub-a-dub-dub Mother C. went to the tub to get her poor Aranmor a skein
When she got there the tub was bare and so her poor Aranmor had none
...And she was really ticked off!'
Sigh...the life of a knitter is not an easy one. At least with paint, I can go out and get another tube of the same "dye lot" and be done with it. Knitting? NooooooOOOOOoooooo! I was so careful to check yardage ahead of time and my gauge is spot on to Ms. Starmore's (quite an accomplishment, if I say so myself). I spent the morning looking online to search nationally and internationally for a few skeins--I need only 1, but am NOT taking chances. I found a lot of 8, three will be sufficient to finish. I am checking to make sure the order went in, even though I got an order number. Overkill, I know, but one must not take chances with discontinued yarn! The body is finished and I was almost to the saddle on the second sleeve when I stuck my hand in the tub--horrors!--worse than a slasher movie. Well, at least in my opinion right now. Until I have the yarn in my hot little hands, I will not rest easy. That would be a cold, dark dive into the frog pond.
Enough of that!! I have an entrelac class tonight. I hand felted the daisy bowl. It is very cute, just as I thought it would be. I will leave the pink/green/white bowl unfelted and then I have two bowls in progress so I can work with the students as they progress. The Quant pattern is ready and I have to steam the first sample (knit in Noro Kureyon from Kathryn). I like it better than I did at first. I knitted it exactly like the pattern. On the shop sample, I modified the ends to match. There are lots of modifications on Ravelry, which is handy!
The bronchitis is barely hanging on and annoying. This week will be week 3 of it and it is time to get better. It just needs another nudge to get out of my system. Over-the-counter meds just treat the symptoms, so another visit to Dr. V. is in order. If I go on Thursday, I can see his therapy dog, Rufus. I love Rufus and he always makes me feel better. "Dog pills."
