I have this well-known pattern of behavior when I've been under the weather: As soon as I begin to feel better, I go wild, totally overdo, and get sick again. This time it's a sinus infection.
Last night I finally sat down and picked up the stitches for sleeve one of the Russian Prime. It involves picking up the stitches 'in pattern', which means using both colors of yarn and essentially doing stranded color as you pick up the stitches. It's not hard, just a pain in the butt. Took about twenty minutes. Then I promptly screwed up the first round and have to go back today and pick it out. Hopefully there will be a photo of this, soon. The process used, with the pattern, is very cool, if I do say so myself.
Still spinning and giggling with glee. Turns out I spin left-handed. Who knew? (I knit kind of left-handed, I guess it shouldn't be that big a shock.) One of my big concerns was that spinning would bother my hand, but it seems to be very low-impact and I can go for hours already. Whee!!
Also researching purple. Which, it turns out, doesn't really exist. Yeah. You can puzzle over that for a while.
Look! It's Zoolander!
Yes, that's me. I don't normally look that silly. Well, okay, I do, but in a different way all my own. Geez. I look like a cardasian. No more sucking in my cheeks. Eek.
