...and down and down today. I used it as an excuse to stay at home, put my feet up and work on Bombshell. I am now down to the ribbing at the waist and things are moving along a little quicker. I'mnot sure about my yarn choice - Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora. It feels lovely, is a gorgeous colour, but sheds like mad. My clothes are covered in it, it's up my nose, in my mouth - everywhere. I hope it sheds less after first wash or I'm going to be very restricted about what I can wear it with. Something green and slightly hairy, I guess.
I was wondering if you could get an 'industrial' lung disease from working a lot with yarn that sheds, when I was looking at the Anticraft website. They have an article on craft-related injuries. They also have this nifty knitted condom pattern.
The main reason for today's enforced idleness is overdoing it a bit yesterday with the arts and crafts bedframe we bought. j helped me assemble it and then I waxed it up. I'm really pleased with the way it looks. Of course I should have remembered the photograph it naked, before I put the mattress and bedding on it. The foot board is a repeat of the headboard, but slightly lower.
No more DIY projects for a while - need to focus on being mobile enough to go back to work in a couple of weeks :( Well, until the next one.
The SP8 reveal has taken place - all the blogs are up on Bobbi's blog. I think I've worked out who my spoiler is, as she's the only Irish blogger on the list. Wonder if my spoilee has received her final package, including my reveal card?
