I have spent the last couple of hours making stitch markers. There’s nothing super-fancy to it — you attach parts a to b and to c, and then job done. But like, it looks really cool and impresses people when you say that you ‘made’ them, so. Not that I’m out to impress people really, but it makes me happy that when I gift them people like them. Plus, it gives me something pretty to work with in my own knitting, which is always an added degree of pleasure.
It’s been snowing today, which has been wonderful to watch. And that’s all it’s been; not a lick of it has stuck. The weather forecasters have suggested we’ll see more snow over the next couple of days, but I’m not counting on it being sticky or substantial. It would be nice to be able to go play with the girls out in it, especially since it’s half-term now and they can be out sick. Well. I hope they can make it through one freaking holiday without getting the chicken pox, or flu, or whatever. And yanno, that we too manage to get through it feeling halfway hale, ha ha.
For now, gonna shake out my hands and do some more knitting. I’ve got about 2 and a half inches of the sock done, and each row is another joy of riotous colour.
