I'm not pig-headed, I'm strong-willed

Instead of curling up in the fetal position weeping for the second time this week, I headed off to the lounge room and pulled back the shoulder and trim on my Radiant. I untwisted it, re-sewed the shoulder and I'm in the process of re-crocheting up the trim. I'll get this top done this week, for certain. Strong Protestant work ethic to the rescue! (The first time time this week in fetal position weeping? "Game of Thrones". Holy heckmonkeys, was that a shocker!)

Marcus got up at 3am with a terrible temperature, but seemed okay when I needed him to model his new jumper. Sick, but still posing like a model. Highly professional.

The pattern is the T-Top Sweater by World Vision, one that you knit and donate the finished object. It sits oddly on Marcus, but I think it's adorable, very hippy.

The yarn is "Wintergreen" Jo Sharp Aran Tweed and it's lovely. Of course she got rid of this shade, but "Grass Stain" in Woolahra from Morris & Sons is a pretty good match. Niiiiiiiiice...

Turns out modelling when unwell can be exhausting. Poor little mannikins.
