I was ridiculously tired of knitting and turning and knitting and turning and counting and knitting and turning.
So I started a new project over the weekend. I pulled out some 2 ply yarn of Miss Marja’s that was in my stash. Originally I attempted to pair it with another color, but in the end just decided I wanted to work with the 2 ply. I looked up a pattern, liked the pattern, and started the pattern. Only to realize I feel certain I’ve knit that pattern before! But, if I have, the project which I knit it does not come to mind.
This is me, too lazy to even take a photo outdoors.
We had really nasty storms Sunday night into Monday. Quite a lot of heavy rain, and a bit of basement flooding. Mr. Ink was up most of the night, and I was up a bit too though he was trying to let me sleep. Turns out the basement flooding was due to a downspout that wasn’t working correctly, so once that was resolved the flooding resolved. Anyhow, point being that we were all a little off on Monday. Even the dogs.
Monday evening our toilet broke. We’ve had it less than a year. Upon further inspection, it is clear that it was installed very poorly by the plumber we used. Thus, Mr. Ink will be calling them in the morning to see if they’ll make it right. But this was certainly not how we wanted to start out our week!
I did very little spinning this weekend, less than half a bobbin. The break was probably a good thing. I did indulge in a little destash shopping for fiber though, as my fiber stash is basically quite low.
That’s basically a quick update on how our Monday went. Relaxing, with a dose of frustration, but basically fine and it wasn’t spent at work which makes even the frustrating parts better.

Hope the toilet and the basement situations turn out OK for you!
I wondered if you were getting the wild storms. Glad you are basically OK! Though it doesn’t sound like an ideal holiday, you are right, a day not spent at work is a good day!
That pattern is perfect for that yarn, good choice, as always! So what if you have made it before? When it is good, it is good!
Hail was so heavy just a few blocks away from us that they had to bring out the city plows to move it from the streets. Thankfully, while we did get hail, we didn’t get THAT hail.
Wow! Amazing how different it can be so very close by! I am glad for you and Mr. Ink and the gardens that you got the lesser hail!
Even if you made it before different color yarn makes it a different project. It’s surprising how much color affects projects but it does. Look on Ravelry and notice how color makes one project look very different from its twin.
