Another late evening/night with Mary-Jane last night. Not an overly bad one, just enough to make me a bit tired with crankiness on the horizon.
Did I start telling you about the cardi I started making in the weeks before we moved? It was an aran weight all-in-one top down cardi, using Sirdar Denim Aran weight. Since moving, I couldn't bring myself to even look at it without getting emotional. The cardi has been buzzing around in my thoughts over the last few weeks, so I bit the bullet and pulled it out from the bottom of the wardrobe. I bought it downstairs to have a good look at it. I must have been emotional or not concentrating brilliantly (yes and yes), as the stitch count was way out. So much way out that it couldn't be rectified. I frogged the whole lot. And started again. And I'm doing well with it so far. In row counts I'm two thirds to where I frogged it. Good going. I am liking the project and getting lots of good and happy vibes from it, beyond that, I'm trying not to think too much.
The cardi jacket I started for Mary-Jane I am also going to frog. The texture of the yarn and the pattern don't go well together. I am thinking of either doing a sidways all in one jacket or an EZ Surprise Jacket. I'm not decided at the moment. I do know that the yarn I am using for my cardi, would work really well with the pattern I originally chose for Mary-Jane.
I was planning to make some biscuits with Mary-Jane this morning. Well, I was going to make them and she was going to cut them out. Instead, MJ spent the time playing with the cutters - shapes as she, quite rightly, calls them. Perhaps in the next few days.
Yesterday I had a few hours down at Fobbles. I had my motor mouth on and I felt that I didn't stop yakking. I did get some knitting done, but not in the first hour!
