I really need to just switch over to Addi Turbo needles for everything. I love the feel of the Bryspun (plastic) in my hands when I knit, but I just broke the tip off of another pair of circs. I think this makes that the 4th circ that I have broken, either at the base or the tip, this year. I have a tight gauge, and I think this has to be the problem. Everyone always tells me that I knit so tight and fast, but it’s what works for me, and I always seem to end up with the right gauge for a pattern with the right needle. Who knows? All I know is, it’s Addi all the way now. I didn’t want to work the Moss Stitch Beret on DPNs yet, but I guess I don’t have any other choice right now.
This morning I went to C-CAP. Man alive … it was HOT in there. We can’t afford to run the AC all the time (it’s in an old house), so we make due. And with summer here, we go to shorter hours, which means all the spots for July are filled and I won’t get a chance to get in then. I think it might be a good idea to put that on hold anyway, at least until after the wedding. I’ve been so tired, physically and mentally from work, that I think I may be stretching myself too thin. So, a break isn’t such a bad thing. I’ve been so tired, and then I hurt my back … so I really want to take the time before the wedding to focus on John and me. I don’t think I’ve been neglecting him, but I feel like I’m falling a little short of par.
So, back to work tomorrow (or rather tonight). I know that I’m going to have to float to Long Term since I’ve been out for a week. I’m taking my heating pad and Alieve with me, that’s for sure. I’m a little worried that I could do something more to it, but I can’t spend my time worrying about that all night tomorrow. I’m still sore, but nothing that 30 mins or so on the heating pad won’t take care of. So it’s just a matter of being careful, watching my body mechanics, and not pushing myself too hard. Hell, I’ve been in bed almost all day since Sunday because I don’t want to take any chances. But see … can you tell I’m still a little gun shy? My body is my meal ticket, and if there is something that goes wrong … I’m shit out of luck.
Okay …. that’s my rant. I’m going to watch another movie and head to bed. Have a great weekend everyone!
