Checking In

It's been a rare occurrence for me to go an entire week without blogging, so I felt compelled to check in, though I have little knitting news. I am working a bit at a time at my WIPs -- Backyard Leaves, the Mittens from Lapland, Nautilus socks -- and even starting new things. I am working on a mitered square for Christine's brother's afghan and I started another pair of Jaywalkers. They will be a shameful ripoff of Jennifer's, in Knit Picks Sock Garden in Pansy. And I still need to do my Project Spectrum postcard and think red this month!

I have gotten woefully behind on my blogreading and commenting, I am sorry to say. I am trying to catch up and leave comments when I can. If you don't hear from me, know that I am still checking in. I don't like to talk about health issues in general, but the last several days I have been feeling unwell. In the good old days, my malady would have been delicately referred to as "female troubles." I spent a bunch of time in waiting rooms today (Jaywalkers make great waiting companions) and though it doesn't seem serious, I foresee more waiting rooms in the near future. Just one of those times that I am really glad I knit!

That sucks Laura. I hope you are feeling better soon. Funny how sitting in a doctors office waiting room doesn't help you feel better at all. :(

I'm so sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well, Laura. I got concerned when I hadn't seen you posting in a while... I was hoping that it was because a big project reveal was in the works and not because you were going through a difficult time. You are in my thoughts and prayers. We all miss you and I hope everything is okay with you. Hope you're feeling better and on the mend soon... please take good care of yourself, sweetie! *Hugs*

Hope it all gets better soon. Isn't it wonderful how you can just knit something simple when you need to, and other times you can go crazy?

Oh, Laura -- feel better soon, and don't even think about us, except to know that we are all sending good and healthy thoughts your way.

Honey, just to chime in with all these lovely ladies, we miss you and hope you get well soon! I also had to go to the doctor today for lady troubles, and my doctor said to me on her way out, do something nice for yourself today. dude! it was so hard not to take that as carte blanche to go yarn shopping and ice cream bingeing!

Argh, women's troubles are the worst! You certainly have spread yourself about with the WIP's. I feel a "ta da" moment coming soon.

So sorry to hear you are not feeling well - I've had my own bout of 'female troubles' and they suck severely. Nothing is worse than getting poked and prodded more than the requisite 1 time per year :o( I hope you are better soon - will be thinking of you!

Hi, just curious about the mittens from Lappland. Maybe I missed this on your blog, but what are they? I mean, pattern, yarn etc. They look lovely, and the name intrigued me :)
