Yay! I finally finished something!

Notre Dame de Grace

This is the Notre Dame de Grace sweater from Interweave Knits. I like it a whole lot. It was fun to knit and it is snuggly and warm. Of course, since I made it with angora, it also sheds amazingly. Still, I love it.

Here's another pic:

The kimono has been sleeping a bit while I've finished this up. I guess I just wanted to get something done. Goodness knows MS3 isn't getting done any time soon. The white guinevere shawl ended up so badly I couldn't even frog it and had to throw it away.

In other news, I've been hurting a lot less lately. I have an MRI on Friday, though. Wish me luck.

I'm baaaaaaaack!

Hey there y'all!

So the interweb is back up and running in the Bawdon household, and we all say thankya. Now I can play more with Ravelry.

Since it would take a while to talk about all of my projects, I'll just show you some pictures:

The last one is part of this awesome KAL. They have the most beautiful site design, I swear. I'm making it out of pure merino instead of the merino/viscose/nylon/cashmere/angora blend they call for. I don't like Classic Elite Princess. I don't think I would be happy spending a couple months knitting with it.

There are other projects I'm working on, but I haven't so much taken pictures for those. The mystery stole marches ever onward, but it doesn't look any different, just longer. I'm also knitting a scarf for The Red Scarf Project. It's just a red K1P1 scarf, though, so I don't think it's all that interesting.

In non-knitting news, the CT scan was clean, but the headaches continue. I did learn not to take allergy headache meds for it, though, since last night I couldn't sleep and started ranting about how we "weren't in California" and about "penguins, stoles". It sounds really funny now, but I can tell you it was scary as hell last night, when I felt like I was loosing my mind. I guess it's back to the narcotics for me...

OOOOOOOoooooOOOOooOOO I almost forgot! Orion, the best husband ever, gave me my birthday present: a ball winder and swift!!!!!!!!! Isn't he the best husband ever?!
