I Want to Knit

Another sick day, yet strangely productive
Well guess who woke up with that gastro this morning? Yup. Moi. My father is so thrilled. I bet he can't wait for the next time I get together with B and the kids. Maybe I'll come back with the plague!

In any case, once I made it past the every-10-minute bathroom runs (again, no pun intended) I managed a bit of knitting. Ok, a lot of knitting. I was able to finish my cast on and do the ENTIRE headband! I'm kinda impressed with myself. This was my first two-handed fair isle attempt ever, and while I can't say it felt totally natural, I do think it turned out quite good. No obvious puckering or pulling in, and you really can't see a difference in tension from one color to the next.

the lovely outside with the pale blue snowflake pattern on the charcoal background

the lovely inside with all the floats.

The curly-looking borders around the snowflake design are 12 row stockinette sections that will be later turned to the inside against a purl turning row and then grafted together to make a band that hides the floats. That's why the provisional cast on was used and instead of binding off I slipped the sts to waste yarn for now. I might press it before I graft to make it lie more flat.

Now I'm off to bed, thankful this gastro thing only lasts one day, even though tomorrow is my long day at work.
