I know blog, I’vve been a terrible knitting blogger. I haven’t been knitting as much as i should and I definately haven’t been blogging as much as I should. It’s just that I’ve been a little bit stressed out and while I have had this obnoxious cold lurking around for the past month or so it didn’t decide to finally manifest itself until Monday. Tuesday was a haze of tea and tissues and by Wednesday I was coherent enough to knit while I lay with my tea and tissues. So here is what I finally made…
The most awesome Converse All Star Baby Booties
Aww, yeah! They are the coolest most skater punk rock little baby booties ever. They are going to my friend Liz who is due in January, I think. Anyway, her baby shower is coing up so I had to hurry and get them done.
So tomorrow I’m back to work, sigh. I figured if I went in today then I’d just be worse tomorrow. I was thinking I needed to call and get my flu shot….obviously that will have to wait until immune system is back to normal. Should know better than to try and schedule my own sick times for vacation. My body doesn’t ever listen to me.
In other news, I am almost done with my Helena sweater for my co-workers baby. It’s been ripped out far too many times because I bought the yarn before I picked the pattern and they tried to make it work. Le Sigh.
My belly dance costume is coming together even though i haven’t been to practice in a good month. I ordered a turkish vest (now that I know what that is) went out with some friends to the local goodwill shops and got scarves. I used a place called tribal bazaar and they were really cool about substituting when they were out of stock on a belt. I’m looking forward to performing eventually, with a good amount of trepidation.
