My Knitty family is so awesome I have been a flake this past week, trying to stay ahead of December/Insurance Week-Month and the holiday spirit that I can't seem to elevate to the next level beyond getting my tree up and trying to send cards and gifts without throwing myself under a bus.
Then I went to check out my usual routine of knitty posts on the boards this morning & found
It made me weepy in a good way, partly b/c it was so unexpected and partly because I have been stressed and not feeling well for quite a while.I totally love my friends in the Knitty community. Thank you. I am truly blessed and honored to be a part of such a great group of fabulous women.
If you have a chance to thank someone just because, please do it, because you never know how much that could change someone's day for the better.
is none other than the fabulouso Rothane, mother to Boo aka Barbara!
She sent me this fantastic final gifty that was themed around learning how to knit socks... click on the above EBSP link from knitty... I squee'd about it there in detail.
Thank you again so much for being my SP5 angel. I appreciate it so much :)
Other bloggy stuff: I am trying so damn hard to NOT get the flu. Some little shit kid coughed & sneezed on me, full face (I had to dry my face off while his mother chatted obliviously on her cellphone) and was all gooey & sticky as I took his measurements. I probably was a little too bitchy as I finished up the order, but wouldn't you be if you just got germ-slimed and Mom didn't even attempt to apologize or discipline her no-manners brat? So - Airborne tablets seem to be helping me fight the battle. I am so drugged up with OTC stuff to try and keep this from going full-blown ill, but man --- I am CRANKY. I was feeling so crappy that we did not go seeAeon Flux opening night. No way man, I went home early and SLEPT. Went home 2 hours early today because I'm just achy and sore and chilly. (Turned down free tix to the Caps/Rangers game because I feel so awful.)
Welcome to my blog - all knitting, all cats, all the time ...come in, get warm and share your thoughts and pics --- it's all good! Mewsings, scratchings, and a long nap in the sun....
