I believe my feeling better is just in time. I spent a great deal of time alone last week. Of course, Grover and Esau Marie were with me, but they lack conversational skills. I realized this morning when I was working with “Mike” the spider that I needed to be with people. Mike is my new pet. He resides in my bathroom in the corner on the sink. I have spent more time than sanity permits trying to train him to run away when I come in. I don’t mind sharing space with him as long as I don’t see him. Training is very slow.
He is rather large, isn’t he? Maybe he’s more athletic than academic. I do know that as long as I see him I will try to train him. My brother is concerned that he might bite me, but I like spiders. They eat the nasty annoying little bugs. I have two spider bites on my shoulders from sleeping in the attic when I was a kid. They still look kinda nasty. The skin is necrotic and all, but the dermatologist was unconcerned. Oh, yeah. I kinda lost my way there for a minute. This is a continuing story so I will keep you posted (the training, not the skin thing).
Now, I promised knitting content and I’m going to deliver, but there’s a story that goes with this poor picture. The picture itself is poorly balanced and the colors are all wrong, but the knitting itself, well that is the story. I found most of my Cosmo cardigan pieces. I looked at the sleeve I was knitting and realized it was all wrong and ripped it. I put it back on the needles and started knitting at it again when I realized it wasn’t supposed to be a sleeve, but the left front. Now, I can’t find the the other sleeve so I’m just going to keep on knitting this extra sleeve like I had good sense. I figure I’ll pick the two I like most and use them. Then, rip the other one. And, I wonder why it takes me so long to knit something.
Now, to wind you up for your week. Here is David Bowie and “Rebel Rebel” ………………”hot tramp, I love you so” Have a great Monday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
