More (alternative) reality

Image
Not quite as much done as last week, but I did take a bit of time to make a scarf. Almost 30 rows on page 2.


Back to (Alternative) Reality

So I rolled again and Beauty of the Deep. Didn't feel like doing stamped and searching for my hoop. So I rolled again and got Peacock Majesty. Which I knew I had to start off by frogging (which is why it's been put away for over a decade)
So I rolled again and it gave me Dance me Out. Which turns out I had never started, which is fine, except I didn't have a working copy of the chart and I don't have a copier/printer. (I use my parents).
So I rolled again and it gave me Winter Friends (actually called Snowman & Reindeer). Which was my at work project at News 12 (I had downtime between broadcasts)


And remember the scared little black cat from last week? I think he's settled into being an only c…
