Friday the 13th


i spent all morning agin in the waiting room of my doc …
the only good of this is - i nearly finished a row of my entrelac shawl again
i hoped to finish it at night, but was so tired, i hit bed :D


then i started my summer top :D
the first 12 rows of 88 from the top part are knitted :D
starting with 144 stitches it will be at the end of the last row 380 stitches
but thats the more exiting part, because 88 rows is not so much
the i dont know how many rows i need for the 50 cm of body *yawns* scare me already


and finaly a tiny bit of spinning again :D

thursdays work


i have been up town again for some stuff, and came home quite some time after lunchtime :(
was able to knit 2 squares in the bus …. some more then later at night - needed again time to untie my brainknots

the modified gaugesquare is finished, found 1 more mistake in the print, but this was easy to solve.
the little one is the original pattern, which should be as long as the bigger one, but with my selfspun yarn, it was way
shorter, so i re wrote the pattern and added 2 leaves into it, now its 20 cm long, just like it is supposed to be :D
it will be a long long long knit to finish this top, so much i know by now *yawns
i need 18 repeats, 2 are knitted … and this all with 2,5mm needles :D
