Rebellions and Revived Interests

After a small rebellion against working last week while I was not feeling quite the thing, I have returned to the life of the fully grown. It’s amazing how young and cranky you can get while running a low-grade fever. [sigh] I have managed to get a small chunk of knitting done on the Provincial Waistcoat attempt two. This is going well, as I no longer have to concentrate much to keep the pattern.

I managed to felt yet another pair of socks last week – okay – it was three pair, but hell. Who knew that the “soak” cycle would include enough agitation to felt the silly things? A fresh dunking and some sock blockers should return these slackers to their duty. A tip from another site about using plastic coated hangers to form sock blockers has proven to be VERY useful. I’ll post pictures in a bit. [grin]

I’ve done a couple more baby caps, and I’ve been making up blindfolds to match various outfits. With summer coming, I’ve got to have protection from the sun!

Ah well, coffee is finished. Time to get on with the day. Oh yes! Last Friday, I planted seeds for Pansies in an hanging basket whose occupant had died from benign neglect. So basket and seeds are on the shelf in the laundry room, warm and dark and waiting to germinate. I’m hoping this works! I’ve got some marigold seeds to plant as well. I’d like a colorful porch again this year, now that the nasty weather should be over!
