Sick time

I came down with some sort of ear/throat cold this weekend and spent a good chunk of time on the couch trying to recover. Here’s some of what I did…

My 6-inch Weavette arrived on Saturday morning. The Spinning Wheel Yarn Shop was super speedy and included a very cute sheepy thank you card. Not to mention, they also had free shipping. If you want a Weavette, order from them.

Anyway, I first made a square with it:

And I learned that winding tension is extremely important. Emy had said in comments that it looked like making the squares was pretty time-consuming. It wasn’t with the small squares (except for the ones where I was experimenting with fancy things). This one was, because the tension of the cross strands made it very difficult to push the needle through. And the resulting square is very stiff. I’ll be trying again much more loosely.

Next, I started a mystery project. Here’s the first part, can you guess what it is? (If you’ve been in my office and have inside knowledge, you aren’t allowed to guess):

I also made some good progress on Mermaid. I’ve made it past the halfway point on the body. I also charted out the sleeves. So if you’ve been using the spreadsheet from me and didn’t get an update dated 2/26, send me an e-mail.

Finally, I finished the prototype for my new Whirligig Hat:

It’s blocking right now. I wrote up the pattern and will be test knitting it shortly before I unleash it on all of you.

    Thanks for discussing your ideas. I might also like to convey that video games have been actually evolving. Technology advances and revolutions have made it simpler to create reasonable and interactive games. All these entertainment games were not actually sensible when the actual concept was first being used. Just like other styles of technological innovation, video games way too have had to progress by many ages. This itself is testimony for the fast growth of video games.
