I feel like there is so much happening at the moment that’s a secret.
I have secret tutorials happening, secret patterns that I’m writing and editing, secret projects for friends who read this so I’m totally not telling!!!!
There has been a lot happening, but not much I can blog about.
Fortunately my health is going really well! For those who missed my Twitter meltdown I had a really shitty appointment with my pain management specialist where I ended up dumping him. So I went to my GP who is lovely and actually takes time to listen to me and prescribe me new medications that won’t conflict with current medications (unlike said specialist).
So the new medication I’m on is helping me feel like a person who can actually sit on the couch without rubbing her neck in pain. Albeit a drowsy person, but I can deal with that. Knitting needles aren’t classed as heavy machinery.
Anyways I have finished an object that I can show you.
The yarn is the 5th doctor in YarnvsZombies Doctor Who yarn club. As the 5th doctor being known for his cricket vest I wanted a cable pattern that I could call my crickety cricket shawl (the designer called it storm warning.)
My name comes from the Children in Need special Time Crash where the 5th Doctor and the 10th Doctor meet.
“The hat the coat, the crickety cricket look, the stick of celery….. Brave choice celery, not many people can pull off a decorative vegetable.”
Kiki (the mastermind behind YarnvsZombies) cleverly included the decorative celery in the yarn.
It makes for a really gorgeous shawl. It was a breeze to knit up, the yarn is supersquishy and lovely. Once I got a hang of the pattern, including putting in an extra stitch marker to help me count, it went really quickly.
I love this shawl and cannot wait for it to get cold enough to wear it.
I got a grand total of one shot of me, in the aircon, before it got too hot to wear. And unfortunately eeyore doesn’t have the figure to model a shawl!!!

Poor eeyore, he looks like he feels he is missing out. It looks like a really nice knit, enough to be interesting but not too complicated you loose track of everything else. I am glad your pain is being better managed. X
Great colours Bek! I think it’s always worthwhile to shop around a bit for medical professionals, especially if they’re not working out for you. After all, you’re entrusting them with your health!
