The Other FO


It’s Marja’s Ghazal Cowl out of her own handspun. Isn’t it pretty? Those pops of color are a ton of fun on the neutral base. This is definitely a pattern I enjoy, though I must also say that I do need to give this one a break for a bit as two in a short time frame is a little much. What is it about favorite patterns that make me want to wear them out? Sort of like comfort food I suppose. Anyhow, since my agreement with myself is that I can’t count knitting with Marja’s handspun FOR Marja in my knitting totals, this doesn’t count toward keeping my knitting and spinning yardage even. But, I believe I’ll finish something tonight that can go toward that total.

Miss Butterfly took a nice hot bath yesterday with her bath bomb, and was certainly feeling a bit better than the day before. She agrees with Salpal1 that if she keeps moving, walking, she feels better. It’s the mornings that are the most difficult.

She’s still eating VERY well for her, consuming food we’ve made for dinner rather than choosing to make herself something else, and then asking for ice cream. I’d blame that on the weekend as well.

As for me, my grant numbers are up to 11 between now and February 16. My grant team numbers keep going down. And, while I’d feel guilty sending one of my grants over to them, I might have to. Things are looking so dire. Last night I even had to work from home which never happens, and is frowned upon. But, the pace is unsustainable really. And it also means that my life, except for what Miss Butterfly is up to these days, is so so boring. And I really hate being a boring creature!
