I finished the body of my puerperium cardigan last week and just have the sleeves left to do. And of course the part that takes the longest – choosing the buttons. I’ve put it aside for the past week to learn magic loop knitting so I can finish the sleeves nicely. I decided to learn the technique on a little pair of baby legwarmers and if someone else was working on them they would also work up really quickly. It will actually look like a legwarmer in a few days I hope but my time is being split a little thin this week. I’m sewing up a storm for the first time in months and then yesterday we had a big huge thing happen – we had our IVF drug instruction session and got our injectable drugs. Talk about daunting! And I had to inject myself with an empty needle to prove to the nurse that I can do it. We start our injections next Thursday and I can probably look forward to some fairly fun menopausal symptoms. Yay.
And the magic loop technique? I am so embarrassed about how afraid I was to try it and how incredibly easy I found it. I find new things hard to learn but magic loop was most definitely not hard and I’m pretty sure I will never go back to straight needles voluntarily! No more seaming!
The book is Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and so far it is really good if slightly creepy. I tried so hard with The Night Circus but I finally decided that if I kept reading I would constantly be asking myself if I was enjoying it or not. And I was never quite sure if I was. Reading should definitely not be that hard!
