Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

Why hello owls!

Posted by Amber on July 16, 2008

I started Spring Forward on Sunday night (with Hand Jive Nature’s Palette in Odd Duck). It is just FLYING off the needles! It’s the Monkey sock of SOS’08. I also had a plain stockinette sock going on that I started last Monday (the fourth start on that sock) … I just wasn’t feeling the stockinette love on the weekend – I guess it felt like bus knitting.

So just what am I doing up and blogging at 1:30 AM?

I had a horrible headache today, that got worse and worse as the day went on. And for some reason, even though I knew I was out of aspirin at home, I didn’t stop at the CVS in my office building at any point today. After two hours on the couch with a cold washcloth on my head, I decided I had to go to the drug store or else I was going to throw up on the couch. I picked up a box of Excedrin and took two … which is 130 mg of caffeine … almost as much as my morning latte. By 9:30 I was pain free … and completely wired. I’m still wired, can’t even think about bed, and yet I have to go to work tomorrow morning.

Wednesday is going to suuuuuuuuuuuck.

    Hope your head is better today, even if you’re totally asleep!
