This and that

I just sent a thank you message to the designer of the shawl I'm knitting. With her help I was able to get past the obstacle and now the shawl is progressing well. It's an exquisite design, and I can't wait to complete and wear it. (I'm probably... Read more
And then there's that

I was able to get my yarn, and I got three different ones so that I'll be set for awhile. I restarted a shawl I had a lot of trouble with before. Luckily for me, the designer is a member of Ravelry like I am. I contacted her, and she gave me hel... Read more

At least I was able to get some decent sleep last night. This morning I finished the blue cotton shawl. I'm pleased with how it turned out. Now I just have to wait until someone has a free moment, because my yarns are in a drawer across the... Read more

I'm a mess today. Last night my roommate had insomnia, so of course I did too. And we're voting opposite sides this election, and she loves to watch videos of her candidate -- loudly. But mostly I'm just feeling kind of defeated. There's be... Read more

I'm having a cup of after-lunch coffee and watching tv while I surf the web. I'm also nearing the finish of the blue shawl I'm knitting. Awhile ago I had to put aside the shawl I was doing because of a discrepancy in the stitch count. I eve... Read more

If I ever have my own home again, I'm going to USE my belongings. I have new-looking cookware that's a couple of years old, shelves of pristine cookbooks, beautiful dresses untouched in my closet. I've always treated possessions as museum pieces... Read more

I'm convinced that hospital lab people are vampires. Not only do they take your blood, but you never see them after dawn. This morning the lab needed blood at 4 AM. Then the CNA woke me just before six to clean me up. Then the kitchen messe... Read more

The cough is abating, though not fast enough (of course). This morning the RN brought my medicine, and she was coughing and sniffling. I said, "Shoo! I don't need another cold!". I've almost finished my white shawl, and a baby blue one will... Read more

This miserable cough has kept me awake the last couple of nights. They're giving me Robitussin for it but it isn't doing a lot. The other day the morning RN told me her husband is buying a pedigreed bulldog puppy from a breeder in Kansas (e... Read more

I have my second cold and sore throat in less than a month. Phooey... I'm tired and grumpy today. It gets noisy in the hall at night so I started having my door shut at night, which I never used to do. Unfortunately, since the building is a... Read more
Some kind of Sunday

During the night I heard water trickling but didn't pay much attention because there are all kinds of sounds around here. We woke up this morning to be told that the plumbing is messed up! The kitchen and laundry room flooded, sending water into... Read more

Yesterday I caved and ordered three kits for pairs of socks. I tried to resist, but they were substantially marked down. But now I have projects lined up for several months and besides, right now there's really nothing else I can do for myself. ... Read more
Bad/sad day

Two years ago today my best friend and unofficially adopted sister Lynda passed away (my profile picture). Not a day goes by I don't miss her and fervently wish she was still here. Today the CNA I posted about before came into my room and s... Read more
Okay, well...

Recently I started a light blue shawl but this morning I put it aside. At a certain point in the pattern, despite a dozen tries, I kept coming up two stitches short on the left side. Eventually I'll pick it up again and try to figure out if I'm ... Read more
Bad mood

I'm in a terrible mood today, although the knee has quit hurting. There's a CNA here who is seriously bugging me. Last week he came to my room and said that the next day he planned to bring yarn and needles so I could teach him to knit! Lea... Read more
