A weekend sadly lacking in knitting content chez Wool Palace I'm afraid.
The house has been struck with some nasty gastric virus. Of course, being a family with children, we can't all get sick at the same time. So as I am starting to feel better, Sam and Josie are starting the slow slide down. They're not really ill, just low level grumpy and tired, which makes getting ready for school lots of fun. I'm at home, just waiting for the phone call to go and pick up at least one of them early.
As well as feeling bleugh most of the weekend, my wrists have been playing up. I've had Carpal Tunnel problems on and off for the last couple of years. I was discharged by the Rheumatology consultant about two weeks ago, which means that I am bound to have a flare up now. When it gets like this, the best thing is to cut back on knitting and key boarding for a few days so that's what I've been doing.
I started another sock.
This is the Retro Rib pattern from the Winter Interweave Knits. It's very easy to memorise, but has enough variety to keep me feeling interested. This is the pattern I have planned for my Sockapalooza pal, but probably not in this yarn. I was thinking of something a bit more jazzy for the exchange, but I'll see how these turn out.
The Debbie Bliss jumper is growing. It's a fairly quick knit as it's aran weight, but there's not much to see, just miles of grey stocking stitch. I think I'll definitely need a colour project after this!
