I'm tentatively dipping my toe back into the blogging world. I'm starting to feel like being creative again and I've missed chatting with everyone and seeing what they're up to.

Thank you so much for the well wishes on my previous post. Fortunately my blood tests came back fine so my tiredness was probably a result of having a lot to do and some medication I'm taking. Things seem to have balanced out now, or I'm getting better at pacing myself. Mr Soaring Sheep took the past two weeks off work so we had a "holiday from home". Lots of trips out but also lots of time relaxing too.

This week I decided to work on the sleeves of this sweater. I'm decreasing every inch or so but I think I'll need to try it on Mr Soaring Sheep when he's home again to work out if it's going to be alright. The sweater itself is fairly slim fitting so the sleeves need to be in proportion.

I really want to cast on a lace shawl I've had in mind for ages. I even found myself looking for the finished shawl to wear the other day before remembering I have only wound the skein of yarn into a ball lol. I need the same needles I'm using in the sweater so I'd better get it finished!

It's so nice to feel like knitting again, I've missed it

  6. Glad this fatigue isn't serious. Missed you in the blogging world. Your hens are pretty. The grey one is my fave. Yay on the jumper progress.

    1. Thank you, me too! Although in some ways it would have been nice if I'd got low iron levels or something where I could take a tablet and feel better. I think the combination of various real life things got on top of me.

      The grey hen is called Merry, she's the cheekiest and greediest. She's the first to come and feed from your hand and if I leave the kitchen door open she'll come into the house for a nose around lol

  7. So glad to hear that the blood tests came out well. So many of us are under a ridiculous level of demands that it's no wonder we experience fatigue.
    The cables on the sweater are magnificent!
