I took my machine and a bunch of fabrics home, to work through a few felted-knit ideas I've had floating about in my head. I ended up getting so frustrated that I forgot to bring home my favourite tools (ahem... and fabric scissors and pins) that I started a lot and didn't finish anything.
I tried writing workshop notes and pattern instructions, but my brain was too fuzzy with winter lurgies and ... well, I just feel exhausted. I can't write. I can barely think.
Today around lunchtime, I came home from a brief visit to the office and pulled out the knitting machine. I popped on a dvd of costume dramas (both Elizabeth movies) and spent the afternoon practising knitting short rows and getting lost in 16th Century royal court costumes. And I wished I'd been doing this all week (... I might even have finished something photogenic enough to share on this blog).
