Again, little to report. Today will be fairly frantic, getting in ready meals and tins of soup and thinking organisational thoughts in readiness for the Edinburgh Yarn Fest. Can I go straight to my class tomorrow or do I have to go somewhere else first to get a gold bracelet? I must try to find the instructions again and read them calmly.
I did a bit more on the Milo Bambino. I’m within a round or two of the point where the final garter stitch skirt must be started. I decided I could afford to add a bit of length, but it probably still won’t carry me as far as the sixth skein. I may even be able to finish it off today and take the finished object to my class on Gradient Yarns tomorrow.
Allison, a pair of booties in the final colour is a brilliant idea – except that I doubt if there would be enough, the individual skeins are small -- and I have never been able to knit booties that stayed on. My own children pretty well went barefoot until they could stand up, to the disapproval of old ladies and, on one memorable and embarrassing occasion in Massachusetts, social services.
Thank you for your comment about the Curmudgeon, Southern Gal. It is extraordinary how often tales like that, of missed symptoms, are reported even in these hyper-health-conscious days.
I probably won’t be able to post much for the next couple of days, but I’ll try to get an interim EYF post up at some point. Knitlass, when will you be there? I fear you said Friday afternoon. I’ll be at the market all Friday morning – at least, I will if there is provision for an old woman to sit down.
