scarf update

I had big plans for the day. What do they say about the best laid plans? I wanted to read and knit on the scarf and maybe spin a little. It just wasn't meant to be.

The TV was nonstop fire coverage that preempted any reasonable show but I was able to watch the Boston College victory over Florida State. I'm not a sports fanatic but I do prefer college sports.

Back to my day, I planed on grilled knackwurst on deli rolls and a box of Kraft Mac and cheese (we really love the fake cheese flavor of the blue box pasta) . Somehow I forgot we ate the last two dogs so a change in plan since it's hot here we had some deli grinders.

The knitting didn't fare very well. I finished one row and was one stitch too many and while tinking back I messed it up even more. I was getting a headache and this just made it worse. Reading never sounded good after the headache. My sinuses always act up when the barometric pressure go wackadoodle, Yes Wackadoodle. Whenever we have the "Santa Ana" winds, the pressure jumps and my head goes crazy. I'm not sure when the name changed from Santana as in hot desert winds but I'm sure someone just assumed it was Santa Ana because of the proximity to location of both Santa Ana Canyon and city and the sheep just followed suit. The news idiots call the winds 60 miles North of Santa Ana by the same name just because they don't know any better. I took a magical sinus pill that requires ID and multiple signatures with the pharmacist and the pressure eased for the time being.

A Lee, fellow plurker asked me to post a WIP picture so here you go.

The day ended well because the headache eased and the scarf was repaired and some chocolate was in the equation.

I hope the fires ease a little and it gets better for everyone affected. Here is a link to the maps showing the affected areas close to Casa de Twisted.


  1. Sorry your day didn't go exactly as planned. But glad it all worked out okay in the end.

  2. Ugh- I hate barometric pressure sinus headaches, especially when they mess up knitting/spinning/chillaxin' plans! Sure do hope the winds let up soon - you guys be careful out there - Cindy K

  3. Beautiful scarf, Jerry. I hope the fires die down too. It looks prettier outside today but I haven't ventured outside yet.

  4. Oh! That's very pretty... er, manly! :) I like the way it works up for you. Because of you I decided to try this as well, because it is so pretty.

    The scarf looks great honey! Hopefully the fires and the barometric pressure will ease up today.

  6. I'm glad your sinuses (sinaii?) are better. I live in the Miami Valley (Greater and Little Miami River Valleys) and we call it "Sinus Valley" because we ALL have sinus problems here. Maybe you'll be back to readin', knittin', and playin' soon!

  7. Ugh, I hate when my sinuses do that. I can't do anything.
    that scarf looks great!
