Saturday saw me casting on In Threes, a cap sleeved baby cardigan. I've had this pattern for ages, but have always been put off by the sizing and cap sleeves. I can't see the point in s short sleeved cardigan. If it's hot I don't wear wone and if it's chilly enough for a cardigan I want one with at least half sleeves. Ditto for a baby. Yes, I could knit sleeves and yes this can be layered. It's just a little niggle. Also the sizing. Oversized and the first size is 0-6 months but I'm sure will fit for years. More so as it's sleeveless!
It turned out to be a fun and quick knit. Started Saturday late afternoon and when I went to bed I'd only a few inches of body to knit. I fully expected to finish this off early Sunday.
Not to be! I hadn't noticed a text from my sister to say she was at A&E with mum, didn't know about it until dad rang at 12.30am, distraught. By the time I'd spoken to him, then mum, then rang my sister at her house, I was so hyped up that I had a few gins and pulled out my knitting. Then the bloody alarm went off at 3am! I thinki I went to sleep around 5am and on Sunday looked at my knitting. Dripped stitches, purls when there should be knits. I'm obvoulsy not one who can knit under pressure! It ha takem me three evenings and some of Sunday to rctify the knititng (lots of tinking and reknitting) but it's cast off nw. Just needs a wash.
Mum fell whilst reaching for a towel while standing in the bath. She has osteoarthritis in both shoulders and a badly healed back wheich means she can't react as quickly when she falls (oh and her age!) so landed heavily. She's damaged her nose and has terrific bruising on her face, bruised ribs and fractured her upper arm. She had an appointment at the fracture clinic today and they've plastered her from the shoulder down. Here;s hoping for a speedy recivery!
