In the meantime, I have been amusing myself with knitting of course. It has the great advantage of keeping my hands busy (distraction from the itchiness) and can be done in one spot (avoiding the need to walk around on sore feet). An additional bonus is the cheery note provided by the colour I have chosen, "Elephant Walk" on BWM Luxury 10ply by Candy Apple Lane. I am finally getting to the Milo vest for Little B, who has been patiently asking me every day when his would be ready.
As I am not very good at knitting monogamy and I cannot continue knitting baby clothes until I am over my contagious period, I am starting a little something for myself with this gorgeous wool below. It is Schoppel Wolle Lace 2ply bought while in Melbourne last year. I have decided to make a Ruched Wrap (by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas). It is simple but should make this beautiful variegation sing. This may take a long time so perhaps it is a December finish for this one. The aim is to wear this with my little black dress.
