Today has been one of those days when I want to do stuff, but don’t know what. Instead I end up playing Minecraft and doing some crochet. They’re my way of just being, but still feeling that I’m doing something.
Maybe today is a sort of hangover from yesterday and Friday. We decided Thursday evening that we should take a trip to Malmö, the third biggest city in Sweden and only about a two hours drive from us. We stayed at an hotel, had hotel breakfast (Weeee! Love them!), went to museum, did some shopping and just had a nice time. Our young pixie is a great travel companion. He’s now so big so he manage to walk for rather long periods of time and he can stay up rather late… even if he still wakes up around 7 am… No problem when you can sleep in the car on the way home.
… but today… Guess the headaches and migraines I’ve had the last couple of days are starting to wear me down. I just want them to stop! Totally sucks the energy out of you…
But on the other hand I’ve finished the Nordic shawl! Yay!
A great pattern to work with, but I think I’ll have to practice some on the yarn changing and how to end and start a row… Some of my rows got a bit wobbly at the edges, especially the ones with mixed stitches and different colours… Maybe it’ll even up a bit if I block it?
It turned out a bit too small, even if I added a couple of rows on the advice from Annette (My Rose Valley), but it’s still good at doing it’s job warming my shoulders. Next time I’ll add even more rows, maybe 10 or 15 even, if I make it in Tilda yarn. I definitely will make one, at least, more… maybe I’ll use the odd balls I’ve got of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino…
Now I’ll try to be kind to myself, or humble as my doctor called it. Tomorrow is another, new day.
