Oh, what's this? Consciousness!!!

Folks, it has been a rough week.  I am not usually bothered by the time change every spring and fall, but this year...OY!  Maybe it's because I'm just recovered from that nasty bout of strep throat, and maybe also because of some (Avert yer eyes, male readers!) "womanly issues" (I'll say no more...).  Cause bedamned, exhaustion has been my friend this week. 

Chores have piled up pitifully as I've alternated black coffee with three-hour naps, all to no avail.  The one thing I have managed to do is get Wilbur out for his daily DoggieBoy Adventure.  It's been fairly easy to do, as Tuesday was (drum roll!!) the beginning of...


I could go on about a few trips to the park with Wilbur and all the napping, which has been pretty much my whole life so far this week, but I know you really want to know about...

Fear not!  I worked on my UFOs as promised. I completed one more triangle on the Jiffy Scarf, and I completed almost half a strip on the Ten-Stitch Blanket.  That was my priority, since Cindy has asked me to show her how to do this, and I needed to see if I could remember!  This project goes so fast, but it is a blanket, so I stopped short of my goal of completing one whole strip because I got a little too warm knitting underneath it.  

I frogged the Thick & Quick Scarf.  Didn't care much for the pattern, and that yarn is just too darn heavy for a scarf, IMO.  It wasn't an "official" project anyway.  I'm thinking of using the yarn for some hot pads...later.

I haven't made any progress on the Brandywine Shawl since Sunday.  My priority is getting caught up on the clues in the Evenstar KAL, and I'm happy to say, I got to Clue #3 last night, so now I'll be working on Brandywine between clues.  Here are a couple pics.  I'm just a couple repeats into Section B.  LOVE this pattern, and am even getting a little kick out of the yarn.

I have a few more things to share later but, till then...Happy Thursday! 


  1. The color of that shawl is awesome. I love the eyelets.

  2. The shawl is gorgeous!!! Wow, when you are tired, you still get a lot done!!!

  3. I'm so glad that you're keeping the lace pattern with the "bunny barf" yarn. It's just so perfect!
