Last week when the Blue Cedar House folks were here for the holiday, while no new housey projects were completed, the bathtub surround moulding was shaped to fit the wonky contours, and Mr R showed me the clever trick of how to mark a coped edge, using parallel markers. Now that concept is another tool in my toolbox, yay! Today, after turning on the little space heater so as to not immediately freeze when exiting said bathing facility, it occured to me that it might not be necessary to wait for late spring to finish the bathroom trim... it should be possible to paint the assorted moulding in the warmth! All I need is a little table to hold the paint and the wood bits.
Solitary Foxen is almost three-quarters finished! Keeps being put on hold as there are many more urgent handwork projects this time of year than one utterly self-indulgent and fascinating wooly wrap... Pretty much any time I have it out with me in public, usually knitting on the bus or waiting for transit, I get questions and appreciations of how it looks. Never had a piece of knitting generate so much commentary from entire strangers, a number of whom wonder if it is some combination of knitting and crochet, probably because of the convolutions. I suspect that when it is finished, no one (except other knitters) will assume it is a homemade handknit, because it is so unusual. Looking forward to the eventual finish, not because I want the knitting of it to be done, but because wearing it will be a delight!
