Too Many of Me

I think this is an understatement:
LogoThere are
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

The town I live in has two of us as it is!

But if you add an 'e' to the end of my first name (which is how I started getting someone else's email and gained a friend in London, England), I get an additional group of people to add to my same name count.

I still think there must be more of us.

Oh, and I've finally settled on a pattern for my Regia Silk socks. Now I just need to get off my duff and take some pictures...

Yes, I'm Alive and Knitting, Sort Of

My health problem has been pretty much resolved. I'm not quite back to normal, but I'm feeling much, much better. I also managed to lose the 5 pounds I put on over the holiday season. Maybe a little more. I do not recommend being ill as a way to lose weight, even though it has been quite successful for me twice now.

The problem is, being ill is bad for my brain. Last week I discovered the back of a sweater that I think I had started to work on in the beginning of January. I had completely forgotten all about it. I had gotten to the armpits and just completely forgotten about it.

I've also caved and started another pair of socks. I can't seem to help myself - they're brainless knitting.

In other brainless knitting, I'm knitting a scarf. I'm going to have to give this one away. The yarn doesn't suit me and I didn't feel like coming up with anything special to do with it - I wanted some ultra-mindless knitting. It's been that kind of month.

I finished a pair of fingerless gloves as a gift, except I've got to weave the ends in on one of them. I keep telling myself it's too late to give them, but I know that's not true. My friend is going to have really cold hands in the air conditioning this summer. I need to just finish these up and give them to her. After I take pictures of them for you.

I've gotten rather distressed about my sweater. I'm talking about the one that started out as a skirt. I think I've decided that I'm going to sew the sleeves in with a sewing machine. I know how to set and sew sleeves with a machine. In any event, I'm still having a hard time with the sleeves.

Spring is here. Time to kill some perfectly innocent plants.
