Hey everybody. I've been MIA. Sorry.
I haven't been knitting much. I've knitted a baby hat for a friend. I do have the pictures of the shrinky dink pins like a promised. (Here's that baby hat. I still need to weave in some ends.)
For the last week, I have been sick. Lounging around in a lump in my recliner. I've got pneumonia and bronchitis and a double ear infection. My chest hurts so bad - I feel like somone dropped a ton of bricks on me. I've coughed so much my head hurts. My joints ache and my nose is raw from sneezing and blowing. Bleck.
Aren't you glad you asked?
Have ya'll been watching the Olympics? I love the Olympics. Between this pneumonia, et al and the miracle that is tivo, I have been able to watch more Olympic coverage than ever before. I love the gut-wretching personal stories of sick parents and personal sacrifice and misery. Those pieces are almost better than the big crashes and the medal ceremonies.
I need to get busy on the baby knitting for friends. Just a few years ago, everyone I knew was getting married. Now everyone I know is getting pregnant. This past weekend, I found out that my friend Courtney is pregnant. Hurray!!! (Of all of the babies on the way, I am most excited for Courtney.) We are keeping our fingers crossed that she will have a girl. Of course, she is only about 5 weeks or so along so that determination is some ways off. So for now I think I am just going to knit white things for this baby.
I think I am going to go back to sleep now. I promise no more long hiatuses. Thanks for stopping by. Here are the pictures of the pins. They are so cute. And easy to do. You can see the fruits but mostly they are butterflies and bugs. And there are a few zoo animals mixed in there, too.
