Headache/Work Day

Tuesday, April 19th, 2005

teacosiesWell, the maple pollen has arrived for the year, and that unfortunately has slowed me down. Headache week, a predictable thing each spring, has hit. Thank goodness for ibuprofen, I can be sociable with it and I might wish to stay in bed without it.

Nevertheless, I got a lot done today. I cleaned house and I can actually tell I did something. I did a little knitting on the tank top and knit three (count ’em, three) collars for the toddler sweater. This third one looks like it will work, but I need to practice all I taught at my toe-up socknitting class, about binding off loosely. I need to un-bind the edge of the collar and do it again, with E-A-S-E and then some. After all, it’s for a toddler and toddlers have big heads. I’m really OK with doing it again to get it right, but I will wait on that for tomorrow. I see Anne, the toddler’s mother, tomorrow night. I don’t need to have this done before that.

We had Mid-Michigan Knitting Guild tonight. Love that group. It’s big but friendly. Tonight I got there late enough that it was a little hard to find a chair at a table that was not empty. I ended up joining our President and Vice President at the front, nobody seemed to mind. I do better when I’m not in the back row, I lose concentration easily and did not want that tonight.

It was good to see everyone there. Several folks had some amazing knitting done. Sharon P was wearing her Pyramid Sweater. Wowie, are the colors on that one just perfect. No photograph could do it justice (not that I have one to even try). Gorgeous.

Rob and Matt of Threadbear were there, and Linda of Little Red Schoolhouse Yarns also came. I sat very near her, and that was sort of fun. Usually when I see these three yarn shop owners, they are so busy with work that it’s hard to socialize. They are great folks and it’s fun to do something mostly social sometimes.

My, it was a fun night.

We tried to rehearse tonight after I got home. Headaches don’t like live ukulele music, or at least not this one, not today. Bummer.

I think I’ll go veg on the couch and try to start the armhole decreases for the front of my tank top. I hope I have enough focus left to do that, but I’m sure going to try.
