I no longer have 'flu, thank goodness. I've been dashing around again as usual. There has been activity, but the likelihood of good-quality daylight + camera + me all converging in the same place at the same time this winter remains small. So, here's something someone else prepared earlier to brighten things up.
A strange-looking rainbow, if you ask me, but bizarrely accurate in certain ways. Except the boredom bit. On the one hand, life might be easier if I did get bored more quickly. On the other hand, if I anthropomorphised balls of wool it would explain my severe case of knitting Startitis.

Just before Christmas, while thinking about Secret Christmas knitting, I went to the Rothko: The Late Series exhibition at the Tate Modern. I had not been expecting to think of wool when in the third room, filled with large canvases from the Seagram murals. However, all the paintings were composed of shades so similar to the yarn I was using at home that it made me wonder if Sundara derives some of her inspiration from Rothko's art.
inspired by the beautiful Primavera Socks by S(t)ockinette
Yarn: Sundara Sock Yarn, burgundy over apricot (half a skein)
Needles: 2.75 mm
I borrowed the thumb gusset pattern from Javajem's Merletto Fingerless Mitts.
Does anyone want the pattern? If so, let me know and I'll write it up.
