me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

Sniffling, Sneezing, Coughing, Achy, Stuffy Head, Fever, so I Feel Like Crap Day

It may not pay (at least in the short term) to be such a devoted wife, cuz I caught a dose of the creepin' crud from DH, so it seems.

Since I already felt like the proverbial shit-on-a-twisted-stick, I decided to put time to my least favorite part of knitting: sewing the pieces together.

You shall see shortly a cozy casual pullover I call "Ginny's Sweater" because it started orginally as a present for my sister. Now I can't say exactly when it was that I started working on it, but I clearly remember knitting along while helping The Danial with his homework and sitting at my old house. The Danial is a Freshman in High School and I moved from the old house in 2001.

No doubt there's been plenty of time to simmer and stew, so without further delay,


This was a free project sheet from Michaels called "Hooded Knit Sweater for All Sizes" and done in Lion Brand Homespun Color 321 "Williamsburg." The hood didn't make the cut. I decided finally on a simple roll neck to match the roll edge sleeves and hem. ... and, I think I shall keep it for moi. (I'll know for certain after I feel well enough to try it on a parade around a bit).

Needless to say, I'm finding everything else easier to do than finish the secret holiday gifts I have planned. But, hey, nobody knows about them 'cept me, so I can be a loser and not finish and still be A-OK!

I'm off now to put on cozy sweats and hit the couch in the hope that I'll wake up from a nap to find the cold went adios.

Last, just because it's my blog and I can ... here's my Isabella during nap time.
