No, I am not working on a Rambling Rose sweater or afghan or any other such pattern. Today's title simply reflects the fact that I don't have a lucid and well-connected post, and that I am still knitting away as always, even though I'm not hardly blogging much about it.
I'm spending far more time blogging about my hip surgery, which by the way has been wildly successful, because after just two months, I am finally dancing again. I also spend too much time making new friends on a wonderful forum called Bonesmart.org. If you or someone you know is having, or contemplating having a joint replacement, this is an outstanding resource and source of knowledgeable information and support.
I'm also fighting a cold or an allergy or whatever is making drainage occur at the back of my throat so badly that I can't get more than three hours sleep at a time, and I am feeling the effects of sleep deprivation. Hence the rambling effect.
And also hence the lack of photos, because I just don't have the oomph right now to deal with a camera. So here's the quickie synopsis of what's happening in my knitting life:
There's a pair of socks completed and delivered to their recipient, and another pair already on the needles; this pair is for me me me.
There's a summer sweater in a cool cotton silk, ecru-colored which is quite a switch for me, and which is about a week away from completion. I'm pretty sure it's going to be wearable, but just the teeniest bit shorter and curve-huggier than I wanted. Which means the next one should be absolutely perfect, now that I have a truly accurate gauge swatch. I have enjoyed the knitting a great deal, even though it took five...yes five!....different attempts to get it started. It would be equally enjoyable to do a second one; I've got my eye on a pretty light green shade this time.
That's all I'm working on. There's a Basketweave Sweater needing the fronts and back seamed together so I can pick up stitches for the sleeves. But it's a winter item, so no rush. There's the Advent Calendar lace scarf, which is stuck on day seven or nine....can't even remember. I'll get back to it eventually. There's a baby blankie barely started, but the baby is still cooking, so I've got time.
And that's all there is. It's amazing I managed to say this much about it. My time gets even time-crunchier next week when I start classes for Paralegal Certification. I know I'm retired, but I have a good hip now, and I want to widen my options a bit. Lots more about this in my other blog.
And photos one of these days soon in this blog. Really.
