the ability to breathe through ones nose is greatly underappreciated

Sorry it's been so long since my last update. The kids are out of school on Summer break so I've been busy chasing them around and going crazy. The little boogers decided to bring home one last cold from school too. I felt it coming on Friday, and it hit me full force Friday night. Yesterday was so miserable, I spent the day half passed out on the couch. Today, I'm much better. I still have a sore throat and some muscle soreness, and I get dizzy if I try to stand for too long, but still, MUCH better than yesterday.

As for knitting......not much has gotten done lately. Thursday evening I was working on a project for my niece's 10th birthday, and the cable snapped on me. This was the 2nd Denise cable to do this to me. DH, hearing the string of profanity leaving my mouth when it happened, told me, "just order the Options you've been blathering about for the past year". So, that's what I'm going to do :) (don't worry, I got all of my stitches rescued on some scrap yarn) I am also going to have Denise replace my snapped cord (they have EXCELLENT customer service), so I'll have 2 sets of interchangeables soon :) Not much else has been worked on lately. I started knitting yet another garterlac washcloth, and I did a pinwheel washcloth. A few stitches on some other projects have been knit, but not much.

Also, because of some family drama, and my freaking cold, I was unable to attend any part of Knitters Connection. You have no idea how torturous it is to know that not just an emporium of beautiful, yummy, spectacular yarn and fiber, but also my two favorite podcasters (Lime & Violet), were just a mere 25 minute drive away from me. Not to mention missing out on the Knitters Connection goodie bags. Sometimes life fucking sucks ass.
