I say this with trepidation, but I think the chest wind has gone away, at least for now. I’m trying not to think or talk about it lest it come back with a vengeance.
Today has been most frustrating, because this morning I got to the end of the front panel of this jumper, only to discover that I had done it starting from the wrong place, so I had to unravel all of it and start again.
So, I’ve been having a rather mundane afternoon, repeating everything I did yesterday. I have just now reached the end point, and can begin the section I expected to start much earlier. Bah. My tv watching was very superhero-heavy, because I saw Black Lightning and Guardians of the Galaxy. That had been on BBC1 the other night, so I recorded it and now I have seen both! Quite fortuitously. Now the only film in the lead up to Infinity War I haven’t seen is Spiderman: Homecoming but I’m not going to rectify that because the new Spiderman is a prick.
Right, time to make actual progress!
The 27th of March.
So the weird chest wind seems to have abated. I’ll keep my fingers crossed it stays that way. Maybe the threat of going to have a blood test made my body sort itself out because my veins hate it so much now.
Another crochet day on the jumper. I think I am getting cramp in my fingers so I look forward to giving them a rest when it is done.
This morning, I finished the second side panel, so now the trunk of the jumper is complete. Then, after lunch, I put in some temporary stitches up each side to get the shape in place. I used pink wool, so it’s quite obvious. After I’d done that, I started on the sleeves.
So far, they are shorter than I’d imagined, so the final result will be interesting. I have a horrible feeling I’ll get to a certain point, then have to unravel them and redo them longer. It depends on where the sleeves join the body.
Sorry, this has been very boring!
