What ho! The King of Fruit
This is pineapple two on the eve of harvest. Pineapple number one is just a sweet, golden memory. Both were very sweet and even won rave reviews from the discerning people next door (my folks, heh)
The knitting has been very slow as my arm is still not well. My doc offered to give me a shot, but then I would have to rest it. I guess I'm not ready to do that, rest it I mean. So I got a slightly different brace and a massage today. I have x-ray and labs to do, and darn if he didn't order the routine stuff, colon cancer screening and all, sigh.
The politics at work have been a real drain but I'll not bore the readers here.
So the works in progress, Ariann...
I'm up to the part where I start the sleeves. After making parts of two sleeves everything gets joined together and knit to complete. I can't decide whether to do 3/4 sleeps or long. Since the intended recipient lives in Tacoma, perhas 3/4 sleeves will be better.
I'm jumping on the Monkey wagon for Zaruzela's SOS in Trekking XL.
While indulging in some shop therapy over at Isle Knits and I purchased the fixings to knit the Hedgehog. (scroll down to see LilikoiKnits hedgehog) and also picked up some gold Bonsai for Coachella I'm now thinking about all the joins and the warnings about joins in the pattern, so who knows if Coachella it will be?
