Know what I knit last night?

Nothing. Not a stitch. I did look briefly at the socks in my purse. But I didn't knit them. And I touched the bobbin of alpaca on Fiona. Didn't spin. Most of my night was spent rocking back and forth, cuddling with my toasty "Sleepy Pete".

He's one of those bean-bag things that you put in the microwave and then use like a hot water bottle. I love him very much, and he has gotten much attention from me this week. Nancy gave him to me, and said after she sent it something occurred to her. That very same thing occurred to Trevor and Aslan as well. That thing, is that he's just as big as a cat lying down in "cold cat feet" position. And he is. They love him as much as I do, but I'm stronger than they are, so I got to play with him this week.

I wasn't expecting to have knitting class this morning, since my two regular students each said they couldn't make it. I didn't mind - I was planning on sleeping as much as I could, since I haven't been sleeping well all week. But when I called the store to check, I had three students after all. I went in, and it was quite nice after all. One of my regulars had changed her schedule so she could make it after all (the kinda slow one) and then I had two new students, one crocheter who'd not knit at all, and one who could cast on, knit, purl, and bind off, but wants to make her mother socks. They kept me moving all morning, rotating various problems, but they were all patient and understanding, and it was a good morning. They all said they'd be back tomorrow morning, too, so that's good. If I have two students, I make back what I loose from the hours missed here at the radio station, and if I have more than that, it's extra money. Extra money is good.

I ordered some more of that super yummy Misti Baby Alpaca (in the deep red, although I want enough for a sweater each in the worsted weight burnt orange and pistachio - this stuff is sinful) and I'm hoping it gets to my house tonight... it's what I'm making a shawl for me out of, on my "My Stuff Weekends" and I was thinking I'd get the first two seasons of Alias from Blockbuster tonight and veg out in front of them with some alpaca this weekend. I'm going to dinner and a play with my parents tomorrow, and the spending Sunday with Martha and Anj so it's going to be a pretty busy weekend for me. I'll need those times to lay like broccoli.

And now I'm off to call the doctor. I was hoping the blinding pain would be done, but it seems to strike just after I think "gosh, I haven't been in pain for a while now"... and I can't seem to learn to stop thinking that. Have a wonderful weekend!

Amie, I'm so sorry to hear that you've been dealing with pain lately. I hope the doctor can help you find something that will help you.

Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. :)

I'm very jealous of your alpaca purchase. I have some in my stash that must be knitted soon. I forgot I had it and it's calling my name quietly, but I know it will get louder soon. :)

Oh, Amie, I'm so sorry to hear that you're still dealing with this pain! Are you taking anything?? I sure hope you feel better soon! Stomach stuff is the worst, I think.

Hugs and wishes for stomach peace to you,

I'm so sorry that you aren't feeling well. I hope the doctor can help. At least Sleepy Pete can help you out!

Have a great time teaching class tomorrow. Extra money is always good, especially when it is yarn money!
