So, the Christmas crafting may be coming to a screeching halt. My back muscles have been causing me pain from my shoulders to my brain. I have to work my real job with those muscles, so my Christmas knitting is definitely on hold till I recover, and we’ll see how the embroidery and spinning is going to do. Oy.
I went to see my chiropracter on Monday and he said I should come back more often, but he’s a two-hour drive away (I have yet to find a chiropractor as good as he is…plus I used to work for him so there’s that too). I’ll try to see him when I go home over Christmas. For now, it’s ice-packs, leaning against wall corners, stretching and (worst case scenario) ibuprofen.
But I do have pics to show.
This is a hat I knit for work. It’s from a vintage pattern I bought as a download but I stumbled upon it googling for patterns, so I don’t remember where I got it. I will hopefully edit this and get back to you on that. As well as the name of the pattern.
And here’s the scarf I’m waiting to finish knitting for my grandmother. I’m going to make it the kind that buttons up on an angle rather than the multiple-wrap kind as the intention is for her to wear it indoors and out. It’s Zitron Loft in colour 945, which is kind of weird; I think the fibres are felted together rather than spun. I’m hoping the wobbliness this creates in the fabric goes away with blocking. The pattern is My So Called Scarf.
So last night instead of knitting I played Lego Indiana Jones on the Xbox 360…for about 6 hours. I cleared all of the mailboxes and artifacts for Raiders of the Lost Ark! Woohooo!
