some needles can be fun

The weather took a distinct turn towards cool over the weekend and, with energy levels on the rise, it seemed like a good idea to resurrect a knitting project that’s over half way (and two years) in the making.

I like the idea of having something to show for these weeks that I’m somewhat out of action. Any serious reading has gone by the wayside as my retention capacity is quite low, particularly in the first half of each chemo cycle. There’s only so much television you can watch.

So, with notebook in hand to translate and execute the pattern row by row, in case I drift off, I am making slow progress. It’s a cardigan in reverse stocking stitch using the most beautiful Japanese Noro Blossom wool, mohair, silk and nylon blend. I’m leaving the button holes till last and may need to call for help when I get to that part!
