...whats everyone up to?
How personal can we get here? LOL I guess I've been a little testy lately because my period can't decide if it's going to start or not. It starts, then stops, then starts, then stops, now today I'm crampy so maybe it's really going to start. I'm 35, I'll be 36 12/26, I've been going through perimenopause since the birth of my daughter when I was 32. Not only do I have hot flashes, thinning hair, and weight gain, but now my cycle is no longer predictable. Last month I was 11 days late! Want to talk panic? My DH had the snip and clip two years ago but never got checked after so all the stories come out of the wood work and one thing leads to another.... Now this month it's having a hard time starting. This rots! And how many years do I have until it's gone I ask? 15? 20? I get stuck in PMS when it does this and I'm either crying or a screaming mad woman.
Of course that last line leads me to why I knit, it's relaxing. And Harvard has found in it's studies it's just as relaxing as meditation, but in my opinion knitting is better! You'll have something to show for it.
I did that one peek-a-boo footie and now I really just want to focus on my mitered squares afgan and start my son's sweater. Wonder if I will ever finish the other footie LOL. Plus I have yarn to do some ankle socks...but now it's kind of calling to me to make a tank top for my daughter.... That will require more than I bought so perhaps I'll stick with the footies.
So tonight I'm off to visit my friend in Toledo (an hour drive one way) to do some rubberstamping. It's 3:15 and I've not showered yet OR gotten my crap together for tonight. I'm in such a slump today I just can't pull out of it. The weather is nice and cool (68 F/ 20 C) and it's such a good day to get things done and I can't get moving. I hate PMS.
Anyway, thanks for listening to my ultra personal rant. I promise to try and not do that too often. (((hugs))) Kat
Oh, Heather, I'm glad you got the hotel thing fixed, I'd have been in a major panic attack if I were in your shoes! I also can't wait to see the halter top, I bet it's just the cutest thing!
I'm here, just going through some personal stuff that got bombed on me earlier today.
Oh man, doesn't it? It's worse with mohair silk stuff, the kind that I'm making that one shawl out of. If I make a mistake, it stays a mistake. Bad stuff ripping back those lace things!
(((KAT))), some hugs for you!
I hope you are feeling better today (no more PMS!) and I read that you had a good time in your blog :)
Glad to hear you got started on your lace scarf...what pattern are you following?
LOL...I just pictured a wedding with someone sitting their knitting during the service.
I'm laughing out loud in pain with you! I'm working on my Shoalwater Shawl again and it also has a 4 row repeat. It takes me about an hour to do one 4 row repeat and it only grows about a half inch too!
Jeez-o-pete, I'm only half away done with it, what's it going to be like near the end? One hour per row???
Scary, scary, scary, but damn, aren't they going to be pretty when they're done??? *grin*
(((hugs))) I feel you pain.~Kat
