Slow Stitching

 There hasn’t been a whole lot of anything happening in the stitching department in the last week or so. I’m in the middle of my annual November fibromyalgia flare up. It seems to always happen at this time of year. Probably a combination of the time change from daylight savings back to regular time and the resulting lack of day light. Add to that seemingly endless days of overcast grey clouds and here we are. So energy for doing anything other than watching stuff on TV or computer is sorely lacking. 

At some point I did get the colour work on the yoke of my The Night Forest sweater designed by Casapinka finished and the sleeves divided off. But nothing has been done on that since. 

I also got a little more done on the Noah’s Journey camels block. But again, that has stalled too. All that’s left to do is the ribbon on the camel’s hat, the monkeys and a little bit of grass.

Oh yes, I also made myself a new winter hat. I had some Aran weight 100% wool in a couple of complementary colours. Enough to do a hat and a pair of mittens. I really feel the cold, especially in my fingers, so I think I am going to do a pair of thrummed mitts. I already have the roving here, purchased years ago and discovered while cleaning out my yarn boxes.

I’m going to link up  to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.


  1. I am sorry you have had an awful time with your fibromyalgia acting up. I hope you are able to get a little stitching and knitting done this coming week. The colours in The Night Forest sweater are beautiful; as is the fair isle pattern. This sweater is stunning. The hat will keep you warm and I like the sound of your thrummed mitts. Take care.

  2. I am so sorry you had a fibromyalgia crisis. Hope you feel better soon, till then enjoy the TV stuff. Keep calm, this will pass.
    Lovely blue hat, you deserve. Take care of yourself. Hugs from Brazil.

  3. Love the forest sweather, lovely knitting, so cute colors.

  4. I am so sorry that you are in a fibromyalgia flare up. I hope you can find the energy to work on those mitts. I really like your hat and the sweater is beautiful.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
