These past few days have not been nice to the humans in my house. On Tuesday Bill got into a fight with a shipping crate, and the crate won. Actually he got mad at someone and punched the shipping crate instead of them.
Well, when I got home from work his knuckle was swollen and hurt to move. So I drove him to the ER. We got nurse Cheryl again, so that was fun. One not so fun thing was that the iPad was missing from his room. I could see one in the other room!
Turns out it was just some bad bruising. They gave him a wrap to help keep him from over using it and sent him home with a referral for a hand specialist if it is still giving him problems in a week.
Then I woke-up yesterday and went to Safeway to get some kitty litter and lunch. The guy who was checking me out raved about how good the microwave Little Potatoes I got. I got the garlic parsley flavor. I ate those and loved every bite.
After lunch I wasn't feeling so awesome. I first thought that it was because I ate too many potatoes. I did eat the whole container by myself after-all. Though as the day went on I got worse. I thought if I picked off the moldy bits off the dessert I had the night before it would be fine. It tasted fine. It was not so fine. So don't worry about the potatoes, I still highly recommend them.
I got more knitting done on my test knit though. I finished the right sleeve completely and I am at the increases on the left side. The designer and I have misunderstood each other a few times, but I think we are now on the same page. If not, I can check on things at the next release and re-suggest it.
I'm also itching to get it done because I really want to start a Slippy Cowl. It looks like something super fun to do.
I'm also having some designer issues in my head. I thought of a fun shawl idea, but it was so easy I figured someone else had already done it. Then I thought about it more and thought of a variation on it. I have been checking to see about the original on Ravelry, but so far I have not seen it. I tried "block shawl" and found nothing. I have been browsing through "stripe shawl" but there are over 100 pages of patterns to look at. I'm on page 51 and so far I have not found the original idea I had.
So now I'm wondering if I should make two patterns, one pattern, or a two-in-one pattern. I also need to get my hands on some yarn in the weight I want before I can do any of this. It will give me some more time to think it over. Though I hear rumor that about 30 boxes of yarn have been donated to Knitters and Crocheters Care, so I have a feeling the perfect yarn for one or both ideas will be in there.
