Onward! Here is what it looked like when I started (sorry for the sideways-ness---this is a good approximation of the color, at least on my monitor, and BIG SIGH OF RELIEF I don't need to put in sleeves!
I started work on the first leg while reading "Everybody Rises" and by the end of the afternoon on Sunday I was here:
Changing the subject:
I had a weird thing happen yesterday. I woke up incredibly dizzy--having to hold on to the walls to get to the bathroom. I felt incredibly nauseous and dizzy for an hour or so---and ended up being sick. Tim was headed out of town but waited around til I felt back to normal (ish) after about two hours, but I still had problems if I had to lower my head and then raise it (or frankly, to stand up quickly). I was very careful about the standing up part for the rest of the day. Today I feel fine.
The Internets of course suggest all kinds of maladies but the theory I"m going with it that I was dehydrated. I realized Monday that all I drank was coffee and a glass of hard cider, and I also took an antihistamine before bed. Yesterday I made a point of rehydrating (water and ginger ale). The dizzy when I wake up stuff has happened before but has never lasted so long--if it happens again I'll go have it checked, but I think dehydration seems to be a pretty good explanation.
So here's a question: do you ever lose (or misplace) (or forget about) a WIP and then get a hankering (apparently is is quaint southern expression day today on my blog) to get knitting on it again? How easy is it for you to find it? Please share any stories you have and I'll share mine this week.
