Progress and a frog

So I’ve managed to get strep 2 weeks in a row. This also means that I haven’t had the focus and energy that I’ve needed to put into the projects that have been giving me issues. When I finally had a day to catch my breath and the motivation, I sat solemnly frogging my Danse Macabre promising myself to start it as soon as I finish my Love in a Mist.

My Love in a Mist is coming along beautifully and I couldn’t be happier. If only I could find a few more hours in the day to get it finished up! I’m anxious to wear it and get back to my DM. I’ve also started a shawl for my mil for when she visits us, but shhh… it’s a secret!


Love in a Mist progress


I should have used a lifeline

For the last week or so, everybody in my house except my husband seems to be suffering from one ailment or another. My daughter ended up with strep throat and managed to share that with me. So knitting has been a no go. I feel so behind even though I have the last page of clue 3 for Danse Macabre to go. Unfortunately my shawl isn’t aligning with the pattern, and I’m going to have to frog about 20 or so rows for it to line up. (I feel like crying right now) I need to find where I screwed up and put in a lifeline. I will have to do that when I’m without distractions, and this weekend will most certainly not be the time to do so. I have 2 soccer games tomorrow, an adventure including the 7 seas tonight at the school and more chores to finish up. I’m ready for a nap already, while the kids are rearing to go. Hopefully I’ll find my time to frog and cuss in peace.
