Knitting Up A Storm!

One Week!

WTF? Time flies when you are having fun, that is the saying isn't it? Well it also flies when things suck. I've been sick - yet again. This is the third time in three months. It is important to note that I rarely get sick, well that has changed in 2005 hasn't it? The first two times knocked me on my ass, the third time I was crawled up in my daughters bed (the darkest room in the house) with this little man inside my head banging a freaking gong. Man, it doesn't get any worse than this. I have missed more time at work in 2005 that I have in the whole ten years of working at the Bank. I guess I am making up for lost time. I have no idea.
So, I'm sure you can assume, there is not much knitting to report. If this is what you thought, then you get points - towards what, I don't know, but feel good knowing you were right. I'm working on a sock using regia sock yarn, and for some strange reason worked two rounds even after the decrease round of the instep, and the freaking instep is huge. Shit. I'll try it on before I rip the sucker, just in case, but the way my luck is going...I'm not even going to say it.
On the brighter side of my knit world, I started my Ribby Cardi again. Brenda gave me alot of inspiration on Wednesday when she showed us hers at zee Sheep's SnB. Wow is all I have to say. Thankfully for her, the one side has settled down and the right and left are the same length. The colours she put together are wonderful. I should probably ask her to come to my house and pick out paint colours for my first floor's walls. She seems to have knack for colour combinations.
I have been thinking alot about my knitting personality. I like having only one project on the go, anymore than one, and I feel stressed to finish them up quickly, which always means they finish in the frog pond than on me. I also like to think about what I am going to do next. I take time thinking about it. Will I want to finish it? Will I wear it? Will it be too hot? etc. I'm a planner, an organizer a let's get this done right the first time kind of gal. I'm certainly not a fly by night kind of gal in any part of my life, but I am flexible. Weird eh? But on the other hand I'm a collector of yarn. Looking at all the yarn and books doesn't stress me out - to knit the yarn and finish all the projects in my books and mags. If anything, I feel good it is there, so when I am finished thinking of the next project I want to complete, I will most likely have the yarn and the pattern.
And you know what? It is all good.
Well that is it my friends.
