The end is in sight LOL
So what have I been doing since my day trip to NJ? I knitted some fuzzy scarves for some VT KALs.(Knitting for VT and The Mary Read Memorial KAL) Working. And more working. *sigh*
But - got my nails done @ bluemercury again while John played poker and we met up with some friends for lunch.
My knitting mojo?
Still wavering. I'm going to have to meditate on this one this week, because I will go bonkers if it continues.
But I want to thank everyone who has emailed/commented/text messaged/generally reached out this last week... it really means a lot to me to have your support. I know something like this is trivial compared to the biggers woes and strife in the world, but for right now at this moment I need to make it about me and get it together...
I've had my knee wrapped up superduper for a week (the piccie above was a concept for sure LOL) but I feel better when I'm moving around to be honest. It hurts worse any time I have to get up from sitting or bearing weight on my good leg, so I say eff it. I only put the soft wrap on today and it wasn't so bad. The swelling has gone down significantly, which will save me a trip from having to face a big needle LOL.
I haven't been able to complete a row in 3 days, and this senseless violence at Virginia Tech doesn't help. Been crying since I heard full details about it since yesterday afternoon -- first news I got was @ 10:16 am while making the store's bank deposit. I almost fell over when I heard about the first shooting, and haven't stopped crying since getting details about the Norris Hall massacre. I was depressed when I heard about the guy who jumped off the Empire State Building on Friday afternoon, and only his leg had made it to the sidewalk below. I don't even know why I'm so upset because I don't know any of these people except that it is making me sad to even imagine the evil, turmoil and violence that is brewing outside my 4 walls. (Other than the Leech and her crappy "writing" project, but that's a whole other can of worms that I care not to re-open)
Blew out my knee yesterday while doing stuff at work and that's not making me happy, because I'm fine only when I stand in one place for a short period of time, or don't have to walk or get up from a sitting position...but what do I do all day? Stand and walk around and if I sit down to rest my working leg/take pressure off the injured leg then I have to get up.
So I was hoping to complete my sweater today, but I just picked up my WIP and couldn't do anything but stare at it. It's dinnertime, and I'm hungry but it's more work that I want to put into to go eat something for dinner. And tomorrow I have to go walk around Annapolis for work-related tasking, then finish my day at the store. And no, I cannot take time off because there is so much work to be done.
My one day off this week is a road trip to NJ but I must be back in time for work on Sat. morning.
I almost bought a supply of yarn - more Twinkle Soft Chunky - and another Lexie bag, but I stopped myself because this iwould be depression shopping, and for all the wrong reasons, so I reined myself back on the reservation for now and will see how I feel after I get back from NJ. No time to visit NY/NJ knittyheads - sorry - but maybe I will see you at MD S&W.
*pets a ball of KSH for inspiration*

I was going for the kitchen sink effect LOL
Well, this IS a knitting blog, isn't it? LOL
I've been plugging away at my monster-size Tuxedo Jacket, which has outgrown the tote bag I have been using to carry it with me when I KIP. So now I have to switch to a smaller WIP and reserve this for at-home knitting *grumble*
Got any sushi or pho?
