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.
