I hate being sick. It really sucks. I haven't much been in the mood for anything. I have been knitting a little, but really not a whole lot. I mean out of the whole last week, I've done barely anything. And no spinning. I don't even have a bobbin on the wheel. That's more due to the fact I can't decide what I want to spin.
Anywho, Melissa urged me to go to the doctor when I started having some serious sinus pressure (HEADSPLITTING pain) and chest pains where I felt like I couldn't breathe. I thought I was getting better, but no. So I went and they gave me a prescription antibiotic. Great, so I can get better, except when I take the antibiotic I get some severe stomach pains (yes even with food). Sigh...
But I AM feeling better other than the few hours after taking the meds. Today I woke up and felt pretty good compared to the last week. Thank god. I have so much to do.
I am hoping to dye tomorrow, it's the weekend, so hubby can help watch the kids (I'm sure he'll be thrilled lol) so I can dye some stuff for the shop. Hopefully it won't take all day.
I have to pack up my last secret pals box. It's all here, just not in the box...and then I can mail it and wait to see how she likes it!
I also have to send out quite a few other things...I usually don't procrastinate with these things but life has been in such an upheaval.
I have almost gotten past the main patterning on the shawl, and will be doing the lily of the valley border. I am just thinking I might want the shawl bigger, it's going to be a pretty small shawl at this point. Then again, at this size there would be leftover yarn for me to knit something else...like mitts! Lol, so I'm torn. It's not like the shawl will be tiny...anyhow to increase it evenly to make the border work would mean adding five whole repeats on the budding lace pattern (main pattern). Any thoughts? Should I make it bigger???
As far as the Gretel hat, I'm almost to the part where I get to decrease!!! I'm so excited and can't wait to wear it! Oh yea and Chad told me his Koolhaas hat is too big (as in long in the back, which it *is*...) and he wants me to fix it. At least he's been wearing it anyway. SO that means undoing the crown and frogging maybe half a repeat or something...not too hard, but then I have to reknit the crown lol. Oh boy...but I'd rather him wear it ya know?
Well that's all for now, but if I dye tomorrow I'll take pics.
