I must be doing something right in the Universe …. I received another SP12 package from my pal on Saturday!
There is a skein of Fleece Artist sock yarn in a beautiful pink/purple color, a cute card with a little charm, the softest cotton fabric I have ever felt in my life (I want to felt a bag just so I can line it with this!), a cute little coaster that you can shape and bend, and some chocolate lip gloss (yummy!) Thanks so much Secret Pal … I love it! Sadly, my pal has yet to receive my package … but it’s going to Canada and sometimes the USPS can be really slow!
This weekend has been a ‘be lazy and do nothing’ weekend. Last week was my long week at work, so Saturday I basically caught up on sleep. Today, I did the same thing, save for a bit of reading. When my body tells me to rest and sleep, I obey. It’s a lesson I’ve learned not the fight. I have some body aches and a killer headache right now, and I’ve been hacking up some junk all day. There is something upper respiratory going around at work, so I’m on the sleep a lot/hot tea regiment so I can go back to work tomorrow night. When ever I have stress in my life, my body shuts down. I don’t know why …. one time my doctor told me that I have chronic fatigue syndrome as a result of a bad batch of Mono/Epstein Barr that I had in high school (three months worth of Mono – not good.) So I’ve been taking it extra easy this weekend.
Ah … knitting progress!!! I actually have photos to share!!
I’m about twelve rows away from joining in the round on Glee. Looking at it, I’m a bit worried that the sleeve openings are going to be too big, but I’m sure that I can come up with something to fix that if it is the case. I’ve been taking my time with this, mainly because it’s a lot of knit and purl … over and over and over again.
Next up, I’ve started some Christmas knitting! Yes, go ahead a say it … SHE’S CRAZY!!!! This is going to be for my Dad. It’s The Yarn Harlot’s One Row Scarf … in mmmmMalabrigo!
I really love this pattern, and I’m going to make another one (or maybe two!) It’s a great simple pattern that brings wonderful results.
In wedding news … the wedding Website is up. You can check it out HERE.
Only THIRTEEN more days until my Bridal Shower!!!! I can’t wait to see Emy, Tina, Katie, and Steve!!! I miss my NY friends so much, so to have them down here – even for the weekend – is making me all a flutter!!! Emy has been working hard on her knitting too! She made her man, Matt, a scarf, has learned to purl, and is ready to start on a hat!!! I’m so proud!!! Tina is bringing her wheel, and I’m anxious to see what Katie is working on as well. It’s so hard when most of your close friends live 6 or more hours away (an ocean in Emy’s case), but to have them all together in on spot … I can’t wait!
Okay … I’m going to reserve my energy and lay back down, probably finishing my book tonight too. Have a great week everyone!
