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
