I'm on day, uh, four? of a migraine. (I try not to keep track.) It comes and goes, I think due to a sinus infection I've had for a couple weeks. It's bad enough that I'm considering actually taking the migraine medication. (When I do that I have to top it off with other drugs to counteract the side effects and it's all just a big mess, so I try to avoid it.)
Anyway. With my head hurting too bad to knit, I've consoled myself with periodic on-line shopping. Someone needs to take away my computer.
I bought more yarn to dye - this is good sock yarn, 10% nylon. Plus some DK weight to dye for TrishJ of the comments, who bailed my ass out in a big way by spending the weekend writing articles that I was supposed to do.
Next I'm going to Elann to buy myself some more Highland Wool. I am not counting this as a real purchase (as in, 'no buying yarn this year'), because I'm going to knit up a pattern I want to publish in Knitty with it. Yarn for pattern making is exempt.
And with that in mind, I'm considering buying another sweater's worth of cotton. (Doubly exempt: it's on the "year of me" list and I want to sell the pattern.) We'll see.
We will not discuss the number of books I've bought in the last week. It's a bit much, even for me. When the knitting books get here, I'll review them.
Now I'm going to go take some Excedrin Migraine and hug my kid. Baby hugging always makes me feel better.
