The quick burn

I spent Friday sick at home.  It’s going to be a fall/winter full of chronic sore throats and sinus issues, I just know it.

I used my found time to work on a superhero cape for my son.  It was a lot easier than the knitted nautiloid I started back in May.

There are a bazillion tutorials for no-sew superhero capes.  I settled on this one from Parents Magazine.  I ended up sewing instead of using the fabric glue, because I didn’t have that on hand.  The stitches are sloppy, but Joe loves it, and that’s all that matters.

Superhero cape!

“Power Ranger Green!” is what’s typically exclaimed when the cape is green. I didn’t know Power Rangers were still a thing.

I also did some knitting.  I have it on good authority that cowl scarves are going to be all the rage this fall and winter thanks to some show called Outlander.

I started knitting a cowl scarf that was supposed to look like this:

Instead, it looks like this:

It doesn’t really look like the scarf at at all, does it?  This may have something to do with the fact that I failed to follow the directions.  One is supposed to start knitting with two strands of yarn.  I just used one.  It’s ok.  I love it, and that’s all that matters.

Also, I have a skein of grey yarn left, which means more knitting, which means more binge watching of Gilmore Girls.

Gilmore Girls is on Netflix!  It no longer matters that my husband loaned my Gilmore Girls DVDs to a friend four years ago and never got them back.

All is right with the world.
