Yarn Along – A Cape Interlude

Time for another Yarn Along

yarn along - a cape interlude

I have taken a short break from the socks (LR pulled the needle out and thus I need to sit down and sort it out *sigh*), to knit a cape for LR because it’s cold and it will be useful when we go out to pick up her brother… that is my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

This has been in my queue for AGES, and I had a suitable yarn in my stash – Katia Peru, and I was in need of a quick knit, while I got the OKY Chunky dyed up. Something that I could complete and get used. I’m 4″ from finishing the hood so it should be done in the next few days. I’m thinking chunky wooden buttons – maybe even some of the ones W and FB made, if they fit through the button holes.

You can find my Ravelry page here.

Yesterday was an awful day – probably because I am vaguely ill, though I didn’t realise that until I looked at my flushed cheeks in the middle of the afternoon and sure enough I had a bit of a temperature. Given there isn’t much I can do about it, apart from take small amounts of paracetamol and get as much rest as you can when you have two small children and another on the way, (and run you’re own business), I treated myself to All Wound Up by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, which is pure comfort reading to me. (This is high praise, I promise you!)

So right now I’m enjoying that, and trying to take things easy. Or easier. Or something. 🙂

Knitting and Reading

reading and knitting

A photo full of things I am currently enjoying!

The book is I Thought it Was Just Me (But it Isn’t): Telling the Truth About Perfectionism, Inadequacy and Power by Brene Brown,  a great book about a difficult subject – shame. I am just reading a little at a time, trying to let it sink in a help change how I think about things, but that said I’m 40% of the way through already, and I feel like I’ve learnt a lot.

The knitting is a secret project in OxfordKitchenYarns Aran which I hope to share later in the year.

And the Peanut M&Ms? I stopped eating peanut when I was pregnant with FB, as was the advice at the time for people who already suffer from alergies of some sort. And, with one things and another I didn’t think I could start eatting them again. But the advice has changed, and so I’m happily back eatting peanut butter and the like (cashew nut butter is great but it’s hell on the food budget!)

In other news, there is a box full of yarn in my front room, thanks to our friends at the wool mill!

New Yarn in my Front Room!
