How Time Flies
Just don't know where the last couple of weeks have gone!! It's got to be an AGE thing. I've been cussing everyone at all the BLOGS I follow for not updating often enough & here I am . . . my only excuse is that the damn days go so fast that by the time I notice it's the day AFTER tomorrow!! It didn't happen like that when I was 40 or 50 but now that I'm about to be 62, well, it's not fair! I mean it takes longer just to get moving in the morning - especially if you couldn't sleep the night before - and I often have to take a nap in the afternoon or I fall asleep when I sit down to watch the 6:00 news, I need time to S-L-O-W down a bit . . . But it doesn't! And now that I'm falling down the slippery, age-related slope, I guess I'll have to find some sticky soled shoes.
So?? What have I been doing for the last couple of weeks?? Oh, knitting a little, throwing out some junque & sleeping a whole lot. Some ugly virus bit me a while back & I've been hacking ever since. I never really got SICK - I developed a sleeping sickness!! Some mornings I get up & sneeze for 10 minutes & then spend the next two hours blowing my nose & coughing up a lung. Other mornings, I'm just fine. But I get tired. The Motorcycle School called me back to work two weeks early!!! Ouch! Was not expecting that but the old bank account is excited!! I still have to pay for my On-Line excesses so back to work I went.
On the needles - well - I have two pairs of socks on the go. One is for me in lovely light, stripey Phildar yarn that ranges from palest blue to palest lavender - not my usual thing but I thought it was interesting & had to have it. I found some pink in the same light shade & may put pink toes on just for fun!! The other pair is intended to be Frankensocks - there's a couple of half balls in a dark blue with light blue here & there - looks like I'll be able to turn the heels & perhaps do part of the instep. I may just find some light blue yarn & stripe the feet. I have a couple of birthdays coming up & both people LOVE wild socks. Maybe I should just find a bright GREEN & stripe the feet.
Oho - I just traded my Hairdresser two pairs of socks for a Perm. She doesn't care what I knit since she wears them at home in the evenings when she takes off her work shoes!!! She just wants cushy, snuggly & warm socks. Another convert!!!
Still working on my Poncho Pullover from Cabin Fever! It's down to the top of my butt & needs a couple more inches before I decide whether to put fringe on it or not. I like the look of fringe but may just add the length in knitting instead because it'll be faster! and then on to the sleeves! I should be able to wear it about the time I don't need it anymore . . . .
