You might wonder what has kept me busy during the last couple of weeks?
The blueberries are ripening in the forests and waiting to be picked. I have been picking some already. They are very delicious. Roaming around the forest is very relaxing, there is nothing but birds and wind in the tree tops, but it does not make up for lost knitting hours.
Some big scale housework, like washing the rag rugs and cleaning closets.
Under these stressful circumstances you would think that I would reach for something easy to knit. But I have not abandoned Henry yet because I have a feeling that I’m learning all the time and I do hope to get him done. I don't want to see him end up as an UFO.
I finished the body and steamed it lightly but I will give him a good bath when he is all done. You are supposed to knit the sleeves from top till cuff but I changed this because I don’t like to keep turning the heavy sweater on my lap. Today I’m taking the day off from all the jobs around the house. I have been more or less lying on the couch with Kille. We have been napping. It is very windy and overcast day. Perfect for resting. And would be for knitting as well. But because of all the soil work (I think) my left elbow is burning red and swollen and in need of a rest.
And yet another picture of the birthday boy.
