My awesome doctor was able to prescribe me medicine without having me toddle in since I had just been there in December. Three prescriptions and a chest x-ray later, I'm starting to feel more human - and I've been on this mess for a week already. The side effects are fabulous - puffy red face, insomnia, tummy challenges, irritability, and personal summers that could melt all the snow that just fell up north. It's been seriously lovely... on the honest up side, I have gotten a lot of crafting done during my sick days and insomnia nights. Take a look...
|My DK weight version of the very popular Vermonter hat.|
|My mourning hat to pay tribute to the late, great Alan Rickman... Always.|
|Slippers that I need to get off in the mail to a dear friend that I've known for 30 years.|
|I crocheted this shawl while I spent two days in my blue chair watching the entire Harry Potter movie series.|
|I made this cowl when I couldn't sleep because nothing says relaxation like neon colored squares that look like flowers.|
|Yesterday, I made this hat. It took me 18 hours - I was up since 4 am - and took it out that night to the grocery store.|
I have to say though, I took it to knitting group this past Saturday and when people asked what I was making, they all made the same facial expression when I said it was a sweater for my husband. Men can love purple. It's okay. I think he will look amazing in it and he was the one who chose the color!
|I really do think this sweater will be amazing when I'm done... I just need to get past this huge portion of boringness.|
|I'm 75% through the first pattern repeat of this hat. I really like how it still looks delicate on such a heavy worsted yarn.|
Now if you'll excuse me, it's time for another dose.
