One baby sweater off the needles! I wish I could say I am finished, but there is still the twin sister’s sweater to make. And I am likely going to abandon the design I used for brother’s and make sister’s a little more girlish. Lace instead of cables. Arches is just adorable. Now to find the motivation to start it!
The month has been a whirlwind. It is almost over, just hours to go. And I am glad to see it pass. Well, maybe just this last week. I was in panic mode last week due to the meds I am on. The attack left me a crying mess. I headed home Thursday morning, crying the entire way. Once home I got new meds that are not a narcotic and an anxiety med. I was afraid I would not be able to go camping with family and friends over the weekend. We skipped our Thursday reservation while I decompressed and by Friday morning I was ready to go.
It seems lack of sleep due to pain, and being hopped up on narcotics, is not a good state for me. LOL Who knew? Well, I did, but had forgotten. I was just happy they were causing minimal nausea which is my normal reaction to drugs. I could never make it as a junkie.
So, while the mind and body are back, the knitting took a nose dive with my recent trip to Florida and my more recent trip to Crazy land! I much preferred the Florida trip to be honest. I am blocking the baby sweater, need to sew on buttons, and then it will be ready to view. Then it’s off to work on the 2nd baby sweater and mittens for a knit friend. I need to get her gift done so I can start on the next knit bud’s request and then 2 more birthdays this month to get requests for. And Dec holds 2 more giftee’s birthdays. I will likely be gift knitting for the next 4 months! But that’s OK, I only have 4 more hats for the great-nieces/nephews, 2 hats to make for a cousin and his son, a red blanket to make for the great nephew in PA, and a sweater vest on the needles for myself. I know I will have lots of time to knit while recuperating from the hip surgery, but I doubt I could get through that list!
And each year I swear I am only going to knit for myself!!! You should see how long my queue is! Oh well, it will be my turn eventually.
