Lady, I got bout 27 people in my head and they was all about to beat yo ass!! I’m telling you, I’m crazy, I will burn this place DOWN! ~Madea
I woke up a tad bit angry this morning. I couldn’t figure it out until I burst into tears.
Right before I went to bed, I checked facebook and saw that Gracie was going to the hospital. She is like the momma to us NMO people. She helped found the Google group for NMO, she can remember almost every study done on the disease, she cares far too much than is humanly possible. She is funny and snarky and wonderful. She was featured on Emergency ER (google “scared stiff mystery er).
Most of the time I can have a Pollyanna attitude about having NMO, and then someone I know gets smacked by it. There really aren’t a lot of us and while the prognosis is better than it was, far too many are blind or paralyzed or have passed away. I can take what is dished out to me, but it breaks my heart when others are hurting. And it scares me because if it can happen to them, it can happen to me.
I dyed today. With my mother in law. Seriously. Well, she watched and asked for colors and I played. It was actually quite fun.
Or maybe it was the dye pot fumes.
I came up with a tagline… “Purling Dervish Yarn – deep fried by the lakeside.” Heh. Oh, and that’s because I’m dying in a turkey fryer, not because I’m baked.
7 lbs today and 5 this past Monday. I’ve lost my marbles.
Yeah, it looks like a ball of yarn now, but that little spiced pumpkin poof of goodness (Silky Wool XL) is going to be a Squishy Cowl. It’ll have a matching pair of mitts. That aren’t Fetchings or Dashings.
Yesterday was not my knitting day. I should have stayed home. I tried to cast on for 4 projects and none worked. I wasn’t even about to touch the sweater. Finally, I thought “how can I mess this up?”. K3P1 is not the same as K2P2.
I only did it a few times and then threw it at Erin to fix because my brain had shut down by then.
So far, I’ve been handling the cables o.k. I’m about to sit down with it again while my yarn dries. Let’s hope tonight is better than yesterday.
