Hi all, I’ve been swatching for the Olympics, over and over and over again! The pattern I had planned to use has been canned and I will now have to come up with my own. So…. I will be teaching myself cables (which I don’t think are as hard as I thought) and I will be teaching myself charting cables (I’m optimistic), sizing etc., because I DO EXPECT these to fit me when I’m done. For all the swatching and swearing I’ve done, it’s a wonder that I am still up for making these.
I went for my root canal on Monday (dentists absolutely terrify me) and they didn’t do it!!!!! ARGH! They tested, and tested and tested the tooth which caused me quite a lot of pain and decided they want to wait a few more weeks and watch it! ugh! I am now trying to decide if I am getting a sinus infection which is causing all my teeth to take turns hurting or if my teeth are all just SHOT all of a SUDDEN! Needless to say, I’m thoroughly disgusted and STILL car-less!
On a MUCH BRIGHTER note, I am meeting my “sister” for our one weekend a year away on Friday, whether my teeth are killing me or not. We will have a weekend of minimal shopping, i.e. Christmas Tree Shops, a few other little shops we like to stop in and THIS PLACE that we can spend hours and hours in 🙂 We are staying at a Springhill Suites for the weekend. We go out for dinner, have a little wine, watch dvd’s and knit/cross stitch/craft! Whatever floats our boats – it is a much loved, much anticipated escape from “real life”! I CAN NOT WAIT. I do have a 7:20 AM dentist appointment to make sure there are no abcesses beginning and then I am off! I promise to get to visit all of your blogs soon and leave some comments – I truly haven’t felt well enough to do it lately.
I will begin my Olympic Knitting sometime this weekend (I hope), but I refuse to put any pressure on – I want it to be enjoyable and if it begins not to be enjoyable I will put it aside and cheer on the other 3,000 plus knitters out there!
Enjoy the opening ceremony! Happy Knitting!
