And then it was mid November.
I am getting slowly bigger (though not actually gaining any weight – that’s kinda cool) and quickly more surly. I still feel nasty about half the time and tired the rest of the time and am quite ready for my body to be normal again. Now that the holidays are bearing down on us, I think the time will go quickly and I am planning to take a few days off around that time to rest and do nothing. I had one of those yesterday (T and the boys were at work and daycare, respectively) and I managed to tidy the living room and rest. A week like that and I might feel rejuvenated for a bit.
Let’s see, since last I had any content whatsoever, I have finished Atalanta’s knitting (with an annoying amount left over – I apparently didn’t weigh it well enough and could have had about 8 more repeats in the straight section) but I have not woven ends, blocked, or decided on dangly bits.
I did half of the purple Boo and pooped out on that too.
I am near the end on a sooper sekrit project I’m doing with Lynn, who is in the meantime doing her level best to distract me with weaving. Doesn’t help matters that I have designs on learning to weave T’s family tartan (going so far as to imagine the impending wee bairn wrapped in a blanket of same)(which means I need MAD SKILLS and a HUGE LOOM). Really, I have too many interests to be working.
In the near future, though, I need to knit Smacky a new hat, and mittens. And clog-slippers. I would have started the slippers yesterday only I couldn’t find the right size needles, and my hands are tired from sooper sekrit big yarn. I am sorely tempted to work a repeat on Madli to take the fat-yarn edge off. (And it occurred to me that I have plain dresses to wear for the holidays but nothing sparkly, and Madli would fit the sparkly bill quite well…)
I have thoughts about knitting my friends’ baby a sweater (to replace this one, that I knat for him and never sent and he has now outgrown, but will be perfect for Impending Wee Bairn), and Bug could prolly use some mittens too.
Whew. Now I need a nap.
Where you been?
