In terms of how I am feeling physically- alot of people are kind and ask "how are you?" I will tell you, rather, I will demonstrate in a pictorial, exactly how I am:
It had not escaped my notice, while spending time in the smallest room in the house, that the makers of these products do come up with the most lurid colours-
I think it's even pinker than the Barbie Shoe (prop courtesy of Laura). And btw-don't even consider taking Immodium unless you have copious stores of TNT- or don't plan on going to the bathroom for a minimum of 2 weeks . Aren't you glad you asked?
Back to the important stuff- my Fox sweater has grown the cutest tails.
I have been sticking close to home, due to circumstances, and mooched around for some reading material that didn't require a whole lot of concentration. I got out my beloved copies of Knitter's Almanac, Knitting Around and The Opinionated Knitter. It occurred to me that I have a few things that I completely forgot about- like Meg Swansen's Shawl Collar Vest- I made 3 of them.
This is the oatmeal one, FC's is dark brown. I learned so much from those videos and books. I truly enjoyed watching and learning, and in this case, I knit along with the tape. I have a hard time with theory and book-learning. I'm more a hands-on visual learner. The most valuable one for me was the Fair Isle vest- it changed my knitting life. (apologies for FC's Godzilla that holds his computer cables).
Well, onward and upward. Someone needs to explain to Chops that laying on top of mummy when she is ill really doesn't help. He does mean well, bless his little kitty heart!
