The Outside World

Yes, I’m going to have to go out today. It’s going to be a shock to the system - I haven’t left the house since Sunday. I really am turning into a shut-in; and now that I have even more reasons to spend time online, I run the risk of forgetting entirely how to interact with real, flesh-and-blood people

But today I’m going to the gym, and then I’ll go in and hold a make-up office hour for the course that had its lecture canceled. Of course, no one will actually come to see me, but I’ll feel better having given them the chance to do so. And I can sit in the basement cubby hole that passes for our TA space and do my own work and knit. I think I’ll bring in the Lett-Lopi sweater; I’ve done about 15 cm, so I need another 27 cm before I set aside the body and do the sleeves. But it’s still not photo-worthy.

I did finish a sleeve on the coat, though: bulkysleevedone.jpg

Exciting, isn’t it? Well, not very. I have to make another sleeve, and then I get to start the finishing process. I think weaving in the ends with this bulky yarn is going to be something of a trial, but on the other hand the fabric is so thick it probably won’t show very much.

Off I go, into the great outdoors. With my longjohns and good boots, because the windchill is below -15C.
