Goose Games, A Lovecraftian Sweater & Sad News

Posted June 6, 2020 by Maire in Knitting, Needlework, Videos / 0 Comments

Just show notes from the video this time. We’ve had three deaths in the family over the past 3 months, culminating in the passing of my father-in-law. I had enough energy in me to get the video done, but not much otherwise.

Last time we swatched; in this video, we knit! I’ve cast on Andi Satterlund’s vintage inspired cardigan, Crumb. This sweater should look awesome with one of my 50’s style sun dresses or empire-waisted mini dresses…if I can get it past the stage where it looks like a slightly frowsy Old God In Training…

I also baked some bread and played a little Untitled Goose Game with the husbeast. We needed some fun and distraction because this week we experienced the sadness of saying goodbye to a loved member of our immediate family.

As many have said before me, “Eff Cancer”.
