I apologize for my lack of response to the last several days’ comments. I’ve spent most of my time trying really hard not to get sick. It really makes my day to get commments, and I’ll respond soon! In fact, I’ve been making a point of commenting on the blogs that I read, because I love getting comments so much.
I have a vague sore throat and general sense of unwellness. I took a 3 hour nap today, followed by another hour-long nap after dinner. I really don’t want to get sick just yet – I have two more weeks of teaching to get through.
This afternoon Marc and I went to my Mom’s, where we helped her to decorate for Christmas. Her house is easy to recognize – it’s the one with the giant peace symbol.
Why yes, I am the child of hippies, why do you ask? My Mom lives a few blocks from us, and I’ve seen a few other peace symbols crop up after she started this a few years ago. Did I mention that I love my neighborhood? Because I do.
I haven’t knit since Friday. Yesterday I was resting my hands, and today I’ve been asleep most of the time. I’m two repeats into the straight section, and it hasn’t become tedious yet.
The stitches are easier to drop than on my last Clapotis. They do have to be helped along, but it isn’t too stressful. My goal for finishing this is still Christmas eve, so that I can wear it to the many holiday obligations I’m bound to have. I only have one more washcloth to knit and all the holiday stuff will be done, so hopefull I won’t get too sick of this. It took me 3 weeks on the last Clapotis, and that one had more repeats than this one will.
I think I’ll go knit now. Since I slept all day I’m not even faintly tired, so at least I can get something done!
