Started into the chemo last week. I found the most tiring aspect was not, as yet, a side effect but having to make sure that I did not encounter cold: objects, food, drink or air. At least this only applies for the first few days so should wear off soon! However having to boil a kettle every time you want a drink, even just to take a few pills (and there have been lots of pills!) is a bit if a pain and gets wearing.
All this has made me think more of just resting in between, not even done much sock knitting (except when hospital appointment was delayed by an hour and a half!)
Also my daughter came to stay for a couple nights and we had a lovely day on Saturday, visiting the Sea City Museum in the morning, then going to a Greek restaurant for a late lunch followed by home by teatime for a restful evening.
I did think however that I could share with you the next knitting project on my list that I am a little afraid to start in case a make a mess of it.
If you remember this recent crochet that I was going to use as a cushion cover. Well the big question was what to do for the other side.
In the end I thought of this cardigan That was meant to wear over summer t-shirts but makes my arms itch. Now I have quite a lot of wool over which is obviously not very suitable for clothing and decided that maybe I could use the wool for the reverse of the cushion and knit a Celtic style cable square. This would give me an opportunity to learn more about cable knitting as so far my only attempt was the collar of this jumper.
I found a pattern for a celtic style pattern I liked but the chart looks a bit daunting! There is also all the swatching and counting to get the piece the right size. But maybe I might start it soon, with socks for when I go out and this at home.
