Day 195

Standard

There are 1052 rows in the pattern for the iconic Doctor Who scarf that Tom Baker wore. This is the scarf I have been knitting for my husband. It is so very late but guess what I just cast off?! Tomorrow I start the epic sewing in of ends.

I posted Meghan Trainor’s ‘All About That Bass’ a few days ago. When my husband is more familiar with a pop song than I am, I know that it’s been too long since I last listened to the radio. This is not the first pop song gone viral that I missed. Yeah, I missed Carly Rae Jepson too. If you did and still haven’t heard ‘Call Me Maybe’ let me remedy that.

Day 194

Standard

Didn’t feel like knitting but as with praying, it’s when you least feel like doing it that you are most in need of doing it. I have been struggling since coming home from the hospital with being on my own.┬áThis shows in many ways but one of the most blatant is my withdrawal from crafting.

That being said, I can offer no visual proof of actually knitting my trapezoid tonight because the battery on my phone has finally given up and is refusing to charge. And so, I am without a camera.

Tonight is Melissa Etheridge for no other reasons than that I love this song and her voice is incredible.

Day 190

Standard

Too tired to muck about with photos today but rest assured that the knitting was in fact done. The other trapezoid was added around yesterdays small square. It is in considerably fewer shades of grey than that literary affront.

Straight onto the song today because it’s live Led Zeppelin with the very awesome ‘Kashmir’ – another of those songs that gives me happy shivers, particularly live versions. Also, I love Robert Plant’s hair! And his voice and the sound they achieve with this very complex piece of music. I love it when rock bands show their talent goes beyond being loud.

Day 174

Standard

The colour of todays rectangle is called petrol but the phone is flat so no photo.

Here’s another 1988 classic for you all today – Yazz and The Plastic Population with ‘The Only Way Is Up’. I still love this song.
