Yarn Along

Yarn Along photo 4.8.15

Today I opted for a photo that doesn’t do the greatest job of showing off the tank sweater I’m knitting in favor of a shot that showcases the brilliant blue sky. Three hours after this photo was taken (yesterday), it was raining. Then an hour later, the sun came out again – only to give way to some more rain a few hours later. Crazy weather – and this isn’t even New England. This sweater is an older project that I’m picking back up after leaving it alone for several months. Next week I’ll do a better job of showing it off – for now just know that it’s a tunic-style V-neck tank made of a very light and airy merino wool. The yarn is such a pleasure to work with.

For the last few days I’ve been playing a little game called “Is it or is it not cellulitis?” — with occasional breaks to play another game called “Let’s see what excuse THIS clinic will find to not take my insurance.” It’s been a stressful couple of days. When I finally got home from the doctor and started taking my heavy-duty antibiotics last night, I was exhausted. But all is well now, I think.

I have about a hundred pages to go in Game of Thrones. I’m enjoying it, but I’m still looking forward to being done with it. I’ll read the sequels, but not right away.

Happy Wednesday!

    Oh no, I hope you don’t have cellulitis! I played a similar game a few years ago, and it was zero percent fun.

    Such a beautiful picture of your knitting against the sky!

      Thanks! The medical issues are on the upswing, as I am now on an antibiotic. We get skies like this year round here in San Francisco (except on the days when it’s foggy), but it was only maybe 55 degrees out when this photo was taken. Thanks for reading!

    ASOIAF books are definitely an adventure and a half. The third one is -amazing- though, it really doesn’t let up with a relentless forward pace. It’s good stuff. 🙂

  4. Beautiful picture with such a blue sky!
    I hope you start to feel much better- getting poor medical response is very frustrating and exhausting on to of feeling poorly!
    I read Game of Thrones and then moved on to A clash of Kings but I couldn’t stomach the characters and the total lack of a firm likable individual to cling to. I guess I need a clear hero to root for. 🙂

      Thanks! I did finally see a doctor and am on an antibiotic, so I think all is well. I’m interested in the characters in Game of Throne, though I agree that there’s no hero. However, I know that my gut reaction is to groan when I come to a chapter about Tyron, Arya, or Sansa, and I’m happy when I get to a chapter about Caitlyn, Jon, or Eddard. The Daenerys chapters bored me at first, but now I’m starting to find her more interesting. I can definitely imagine how the series could start to grate at a person after while. Thanks for reading!
