Yes, I'm starting to feel better and all that good stuff. And today I have absolute proof of that, for any of you who've been reading for more than, say, five minutes.
This is the start of a baby jacket. It needs to be in Tennessee by May 5. Yes. I AM SETTING IDIOTICALLY STUPID KNITTING GOALS FOR MYSELF! Obviously I am back to my usual dumbass self! I am sure this is a relief to all of you. And I suspect a few are hoping for my typical slavering rants when the deadline draws near and I go insane.
Anyway. I'm using a Zauberball in the pink and purple color scheme, sock weight. Really like the yarn, in color, texture (nice and soft), and spinning quality. Too often these long color repeat yarns have horrific slubs where the colors meet. So far this one is smooth as a baby's butt. No knots, no nothin', just knitting 'til my fingers fall off.
Things are looking up. Or something.
There have been a few requests for Goober news, and we're into the no news is good news category. She's had a growth spurt.
You can kind of get the idea, there.
This is a blurry action shot, taken today.
We hiked up the hill (well, I walked, she ran) to the rental office to have a conversation with them about the fuckwits in this building who are smoking in the public spaces, thereby giving me asthma attacks. Since it's in the lease to NOT do that, all I wanted was for them to make people follow the rules. Once I explained the asthma and near-pneumonia (twice!) over the winter and the super expensive drugs (that seem to be working), they seemed very kind and are taking it seriously.
If that doesn't work, I'm gonna lay into the smoker with my niddy-noddy.
And here is the Goober last night. (More blur. Still getting the hang of the camera on the new phone.) We went out to eat, and she has lately developed a thing for pizza crusts.
That's her stuffing one into her mouth. Kind of reminds me of the macaroon photo shoot, actually.
So, that's about it. Situation again normal: I'm huddled over a knitting project, cursing myself and wondering what in hell I was thinking. Nothing but good times ahead.
