This blog is mostly going to be my little place to talk about the novel I am writing. Which is why I stole a quote from one of my favorite tv shows, as this novel I am writing, I plan to finish, and at times.. it feels like an impossible thing. Also this is to journal my move to the UK, and starting my own business as an Indie Yarn Dyer

Doomsday Cardi!

Normally today would again be Wordless Wednesday, but that’s not happening today so bare with me.  No gym either because it was a hassle with the car situation, and my hips were better but not 100%.

Right now I’m watching An American Werewolf in London, and dreading what is about to come. Just keep reading… you’ll see what I mean.

Now, on to Doomsday. Isn’t it pretty?

Now lets see what I saw last night…


Yes, those are mistakes.

Now, I’m sure I’m the only one would 1)would notice and 2) would care.

But I care. I care a lot. This is the cardigan I am supposed to get married in. If I don’t fix it, I’ll know. I’ll think about it. I’ll hate it.

Yes, there is also the problem that if I keep having to redo this, I’ll end up hating it by the time it is finished. But that, is a chance I’m willing to take.

I’ve got enough time that I’m not freaking out. I’m also getting pretty good at knitting it quickly.  I just need to make sure I remember to pay attention and not accidentally cross my cables the wrong way.

It’s off the needles and on a strand of yarn, I’ll frog that when I finally need that yarn.

Today I’m going to cast on again.

But right now… I’m going to make pizza for lunch and eat the custard I made this morning.

No, I’m not actually upset about this. Frustrated and disappointed… But not upset.  I’ll get it right eventually.



It’s Sweaterday and I do not have photos of my Doomsday to post. That’s alright. Soon hopefully.

I’ve made lotsa progress on it. I’m up to row 47, so I’ve got about 70 rows of the body left to go before I set it aside to do the sleeves.

Drove to Denver today. That was not fun. My back was twinging the entire time, heck it even kept me up throughout the night. So a 3 hour round trip car ride was unpleasant to say the least.

The company was… strained. I was not in a bad mood, but I was hurting, and people were being… well there were dumb drivers on the road, and I had to deal with some people who drive me absolutely batty. (And when I say that, I do not mean Batty in the awesome way.)

Didn’t get any knitting done while at the SnB, because I forgot to bring another skein of yarn, and I was at the end of the current one.

I didn’t get any writing done last night or while at the SnB because last night it was after midnight when I went to bed and I was tired, and today… well it was a chaotic environment which wasn’t good for that.

Tonight when I crawl into bed, I will hopefully get my two pages done.

Reading: I put down “Must love Hellhounds” which has a Charlaine Harris short story.  It was… meh. And it’s due back at the library so it’s been put down. I might read it again after the move, but I’m not rushing out to do so.

Picked up “Dying for Chocolate” by Diana Mott Davidson. But truth be told, I’m really looking forward to the next book in my pile more. “Cross Bones” by Kathy Reichs.

I guess I’m done for the night. The opening ceremonies last night rocked.

Bugs and Hisses!
