My flight for CoCo is apparently cancelled so my options to reboo are wednesday morning (direct) or a short layover in seattle on thursday and arriving around 6pm in LA. Decisions!
This is gonna be a weird post. I was so tired last night but couldnt sleep thanks to anxiety (i dont know why), so tje bones of this was thought up while rolling around in bed.
First the fun stuff: sewing! My friend doesnt have enough salvaged hoop wire for both of us to use, so im going ahead with plumbing tubing. I have 84" or so leftover from the farthingale but i still need at least 3 more 25' rolls. At $12 each plus the copper connectors, i cant get them right now (im in the black for the first time in years, trying hard to stay there!) but hopefully soon. I did get enough wire into my hoop to at least measure the lengths needed to start a petticoat. I've worn a hoop precisely twice, should be fun :)
Right now im debating starting a project for the HSM or forging ahead with more of the Big Project, except the BP really needs that hoop finished before i can really make headway. Sigh.
Yesterday i decided to knit instead of pretty much anything else. Im working on a pair of socks. I will probably need a longer circular needle than the one im using. I also finished a beaded pineapple purse, and then frogged it. It seemed too narrow and long, so the person im making it for and i agreed that it was just not right, and im starting over. I think id like to use a slightly larger needle, liiiiike the one im using for the socks...
On saturday i forgot to wash the shawl i use at work, and its sitting in my car awaiting my next visit to my friend's house. I pulled out the winter shawl from Godey's i madeba couple years ago, which just feels too small, so now i want a new one. Bad self! Finish other projects first!
Ok, now the less fun stuff.( politicsCollapse )( Anxiety can go suck a lemonCollapse )
Also contributing is my cat's health. His blood sugars have dropped at the level of insulin i had him on, and we're in an adjustment phase. Theres a lot of worry about that too.
