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.
Casting on the Crumb cardigan by Andi Satterlund. It will be the first sweater knit by me, for me, and I’m excited! This week, I knit a gauge swatch or two.
I find that the humble sock is a perfect project. It’s small enough to be portable, and it’s not so large as to overheat a knitter in summer. They’re suitable for chatting over a cup of tea, or an evening glass of wine.
It’s the first day of December, so that means American Thanksgiving is over and we lived through another November. For the more religious of us, that means we’re now firmly in Advent. There are only 24 shopping days til Yule. Are you ready?
It doesn’t feel like I did a lot this week, but I did find some reading time. I also managed to fit in a little sock knitting. Now if only I didn’t feel so exhausted!
I don’t exactly know where the phrase ‘happy sushi belly’ came from, but after Friday night, that’s exactly what I had. Welcome to the Sunday Post!
I came across a strange artifact yesterday while I was cleaning a few surfaces in my home studio/office. It’s a strange plastic jar with a hole in the hinged lid. And it’s filled with socks waiting to be darned.
Reading has been an avid hobby my whole life. However, I don’t look at reading as a ‘lifestyle’. So while I do love fuzzy socks and hot chocolate, I’m not in the habit of collecting decorative bookmarks.
I used to joke that it’s a good thing the Husbeast is five years younger than me. After all, men often die an average of five years before their same-aged spouse, so I should have companionship all the way to the end, right?
This week’s Sunday Post feels a little sparse to me. Or maybe repetitive. I’m just surprised it’s Sunday again! I thought we just had one last week…
