Gloomy All Day

I hate days like this.  We walked down the road past the horse farm and followed the path to the river.  It was perfectly still.  The sky was gray.  The river was gray.  And very quiet.  It was eerie.  Even the dog was subdued.  I stood at the water’s edge and looked down the river.  Any second now an enormous whale will fly out of the water.  Yeah.  Right. Like that’s going to happen.  It was an exciting thought.  I walked home thinking I should wash the kitchen floor.  When the Christmas crap is put away, I usually go into cleaning mode.  It hasn’t happened yet.  I seem to be in more of a sewing mode, but I’m not quite there yet.  When I got home, I put away fabric and turned on the iron.  I ironed some of the facings to interfacing and then realized I needed to sew some together before ironing.  I looked at my sewing cabinet.  Neither machine was set up and where in the hell was my little wall lamp?   It must be time to get out the knitting.  I started an entrelac scarf.  What do you think?

p1010592I always use a circular needle for entrelac. The added flexibility really helps.  I may change to bigger needles.  I got bored with it and tried out some sock yarn.   It doesn’t do anything for me either.p1010593  But, it makes for a good sample.





Excuse me.  I’ve got to go let a cat out of the basement.

    All I have left on the little smock dress are the sleeves and to finish the smocking, pockets and sew it together. I thought I would long have been finished but there was way more to it than I thought. It is looking good. I am waiting for yarn to come in the mail for the sleeves. It took more than I thought.

    You know what’s weird? We are having a heat wave, hottest January since 1926 or something. Just beautiful and warm, but it makes me uneasy, there’s no wind. I’m enjoying being warm but it just feels wrong.

    I really have to try entrelac. A member of my knitting group just did a felted entrelac bag, it is stunning.
