Ah, just when I'm feeling on top of the world, my body has different ideas. Having suffered occasionally, but yearly, chronic lumbar back strains and sprains and muscle spasms for the last 10 years, once again this week I was down for the count. And it all happened by simply getting up out of a chair. "Boing!" "Uh-oh." Good news is that my M.D. has me scheduled for an MRI and an appointment with a specialist to take a look-see. Hopefully they can help me to not have this problem anymore. Nuff of that.
On the knitting front, Charlotte's Web is fini, and I think it's beautiful. I went down to the courthouse and took all these lovely photos before it heats up too much today. Yesterday was a sweltering 95F. It's hard to get motivated to have a big pile of even cotton on your lap when it's like that.
I did learn that if and when I knit another CW, I will bind off ever so loosely. I thought I was, but it needed a bit more slack in the blocking stage to stretch to the guideline measurements, but it's acceptable.
I also started my scarf for the Red Scarf Project. Now, I know what you're thinking, it's not red, but it doesn't have to be according to the Red Scarf Project website. I'm using Manos del Uruguay in the Stellar colorway, and I'm using the Vintage Velvet pattern out of Scarf Style. I love how the cables show on each side.
I started on the sleeves of the top-down cotton pullover, and if I put my mind to it, I could have it done this weekend. Not much to do, really, so I'll try and finish it up between ice water breaks and cold showers. Stay cool until next time...
