This week has knocked me on my noggin.
Just been very ill with some sort of flu bug, and between that and some house turmoil, it’s been a stressy week.
Luckily, I have a little bedheaded pal who always greets me when I need a cheer-up.
This is my chinchilla, Yuffie. She’s small and spazzy, and enjoys chilling out on my lap. She’s totally zen.
(She also got a good long dustbath after this photo was taken. No chinchilla of mine’s gonna look that frizzy!)
Spent the evening curled up with some tea, a few cookies, a movie (Boondock Saints, one of my favorites) and this.
The Noro that I got as a gift, becoming a Fake Isle hat. So far, the colours are knitting up -really- pretty. But I’ve come into a bit of a spot.
Check out that top row of loops. The two balls of Noro are coming up to dark points, at the same time. Oops.
The good news is, it seems to be evening out again, it just might take another row or two. I hope it will look good once I get to a more contrasting area again. Who knows, maybe it will flatter the hat! S’what I get for knitting with two (different) balls of Noro. Surprises abound.
I’ll go back to knitting on it. I might even throw in another movie. Lazy Friday nights? Oh yes.
