Weds WIP… in Bed

Do you ever play that fortune cookie game where you read your fortune aloud, and then punctuate it with “in bed”?

I did make it to my studio today, but not for very long. Although I am feeling better, I fatigue easily. I came home, ate dinner, relaxed in a lavender bath, and crawled into bed.

I resketched my Ohio Star Bandandit Cowl. (This is what I call it in my head as I imagine wearing it over my nose and mouth like a bandit.) I think I’m ready to cast on. I’m not gonna lie, I saw the Purl Soho Bandana Cowl months ago on Ravelry and thought it was a clever idea, but I did not look at the pattern because I knew somewhere way deep down in my heart I was going to design my own one day.

I didn’t even link to it. So there. You can search.

The first pattern in the Kate Davies Knitting Season Club is a lovely sweater with a simple motif. The design challenge was to create your own motif. I think my Ohio Star qualifies, even though it is texture and not colorwork. I do love the sweater but will probably wait to decide if I will knit it, and if so, how.

I had forgotten what it is like to have to slow down to accommodate my body. I had been doing very well for a year or so.

I’m going to try to go to the gym tomorrow. Fingers crossed…

What are you working on? I think I’ll check out my reader and see what you all are up to…

  1. I do that fortune cookie game, taught to me by my host mother when I was an au pair in Michigan. We say “between the sheets”, but same meaning. Design looks good. Take care and listen to your body. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. I hope you feel better! And good for you taking time out to rest and recover 🙂 I am looking forward to seeing your Bandandit cowl – nifty idea! I’m still poking at my motif ideas. It has been a nutty week, and I’m hoping I have some time to just sit and do some sketching and charting before the next prompt happens.

    1. I hope you will be able to take some time for yourself to sketch and chart. It is meditative and relaxing, especially if you don’t have too many expectations about the results. I have really tried to let go of that part! I look forward to seeing your motif!
