Thank you all so much for your kind baby wishes - I really appreciate it!! Hard to believe I only have about three months left.
My 2007 got off to a pretty foul start. Here are just a few tidbits of the awesomeness that was last week: The bloody nose I got while wandering tissue-less somewhere on 16th street between 8th and 9th Avenue - hello meatpacking district revelers, I’m not a derelict coke addict, just a pregnant lady bleeding out the nose into her scarf. (Don’t worry, not a handknit, just a fake pashmina.)
Then, on the same theme, some bloodletting at the doctors office, and then the waiting, and then the taking of more blood, and then, well, perhaps a bit more waiting. Just drink this, it will only give you a headache for two days straight.
And also death. What week wouldn’t be complete without the death of a beloved grandparent, and the accompanying funerary type ceremonies.
But yesterday was my birthday, and it was lovely, and I believe the heinousness has ended. At least I hope it has ended, because I can tolerate no more. Fortunately, I’ve had plenty of time for knitting. I’ve been working on a mitten, here’s a peek
And a blurry EZ February sweater lounging on the couch, accidentally sized for some very husky little girl
Knitting as therapy, right here chez moi. I expect to have an entire afghan completed by next weekend if this bad streak continues.
