Every night after I tuck my kids into bed (one of my life's great pleasures - not a hint of sarcasm!) I go downstairs, make a cup of black tea, and I knit.
Sometimes 1, sometimes 4 hours later I go to bed myself.
Sometimes I knit with twitter, but mostly I don't.
I don't watch TV (except this one show. OK, maybe two shows. Three tops.)
But this week I worked three full days, drove 150km to pick up the car from the mechanics on Friday, went to the gastroenterologist, had a pathology appointment, got the house ready for inspection twice, dyed several batches of club yarn, and did my best to keep up with the obligation of Knitting and Crochet Blog Week. Which was, by the way, a really great experience. Next year I'm going to do better!
But next week there's going to be more time for knitting. Because I'm going into hospital on Tuesday to have my gallbladder out. It's keyhole surgery, only an overnighter, so nothing to be concerned about.
I've requested no visitors (except my husband and the kids), because selfishly, I want to be left in peace so I can make some headway into the Irish Coffee tunic I cast on yesterday in the La Drouguerie Recup*. Is it weird to be looking forward to a little post-operative peace?
A BIG Thank You Eskimimi for once again organising Knitting and Crochet Blog Week, it's been a lot of fun. To all newcomers who commented (or not), hi! thank you!
It was exciting to see you here - and I really enjoyed visiting lots of your new blogs. I am looking forward to reading every one later this week when I'm (hopefully) in bed resting.
My reader was big before, but now it is out of control. I'm going to have to cull some food blogs to make room for all the new knitting blogs.
*That's right, spurred on by sharing my difficulties with this yarn the other day, I bit the bullet and cast on! Have gotten past the little v in the front, about to transition to the cable and so far so good! I'm forcing myself not to overthink it, and so far it's working!
