So I cast on yesterday, thinking it was a good idea to start using up some of my leftover balls of yarn to knit up a big, colorful blanket. I worked on it most of the afternoon, a soothing bit of knitting that didn’t require too much thought once I was past the cast on and first few rounds were completed, and it seemed just the ticket for a very low energy, painfully pounding head kind of day.
Looking at it now in the bright morning light, I can only declare it ugly as homemade sin and completely frog-worthy.
That’s okay, because it did its job yesterday, keeping me occupied and less inclined to give into my headache. But it really is ugly. I wouldn’t foist this thing off on anyone, much less keep it for myself.
Today, I’m missing my hats and it just happens that I have two in progress, so I think I’ll be giving them some love today. As for my big bowl of oddments, I can be content to let it sit there for a while longer just being pretty. I’ll find a use for that yarn at the right time.
It was a cool start to the morning though it’s warmed up nicely now, and despite being tired from the headache yesterday, I’m going to get outside later and enjoy the day. It’s been two days now since I’ve had any exercise and I need the activity. First, though, more coffee.
Happy Sunday, all! Make it a great day!
