The Flu

I spent all of yesterday driving the kids to and fro, buying groceries and fighting off the flu. I made it until supper time and thankfully my husband was not at work so he took over the cooking. I tried to take a nap in the bedroom but the laptop was there, and I was in a daze. I very quickly found myself on the Knitpicks website; I may have purchased blocking wires and woolwash. I’m pretty sure I stopped myself from buying the swift, which I do need but not enough to justify the looks I would get from my husband while I try to find a place to store it (in our very tiny) home. I will definitely need the blocking wires because I’m planning on making my first lace project (at long last) and who doesn’t need soap?

A ball winder without a swift is like tea without milk … wait he drinks tea without milk … damn.

I have a ball winder but no swift. I can’t help but think my life would be easier with a swift. When I want something that I need to make my life easier I can usually find it on my credit card’s rewards site. Crock pots, vacuums, duvets … knitterly stuff won’t be making an appearance there any time soon. So I have to find a way to make purchasing a swift a very reasonable idea to someone who a) is very, very frugal and b) doesn’t understand the first thing about knitting. I sometimes get the impression that he thinks knitting may, in fact, be an alien artform, cunningly introduced to the human race in such a way as to (surreptitiously) enslave us all.

  1. I feel better… about the swift and the flu! I’ll just keep using the backs of chairs until some entanglement incident pushes me over the edge to actually buy one.
