I'm Still Here!

Wow, It's been a little while! Last posted Feb. 24. Let's see, the week of the 26th was what I call "prelude to a headache". The migrain started Monday morning and sort of hovered all week. I thought It was finished with me on Thursday. I felt pretty good, went out and had coffee, got my hair cut. Then WHAM BAM Friday morning 3 am. It hit back with a vengence. It was ER time. The ER was surprisingly NOT empty at that time of the morning though. I think I waited about 15 minutes to be "triaged" and they thankfully put me in a dark room in the back. But I was there until 7 before I got my shot of Demerol and the pain stopped. So Friday was a wash, and when the pain began creeping back Friday night, DH said, :You have the drugs, take them!" So I took a whole Percocet, went back to sleep and woke up Saturday feeling pretty beat up. Headache gone, but beat up. So this past week was my get back on the horse week. Catch up on work, family stuff and school stuff. I looked back at my records, and the last time I had to go to the ER was March 06. So that's much better! Used to be, I'd go 3-4 times a year. And before I went on the beta blocker, it was much, much more often. Maybe by the time I'm done with menopause, they'll leave for good? I'm hoping!

So, while there hasn't been too much knitting, I have almost finished Clapotis, and a chemo cap for a friend, I did manage to frog an entire sweater. Yep, a FINISHED OBJECT is no more.

Trendy Tweed Spaghetti

This is my Gedifra Trendy Tweed sweater. Sorry, WAS.
This is what it looks like now

Trendy Tweed Yarn Cakes II

My Gauge was off. The measurements were right on, but the armholes were too tight and I knew I'd never wear it. So It will be a top down raglan which is supposed to be knit in a bulky yarn

I love the yarn, It is a soft wool with a nylon acrylic strand running through it. So it's my Yarn Pr0n for this week. And here's my helper:


She insists on rolling around on my keyboard.
