Knitting content below, but a brief interlude first.
I made a vague reference to an event and a person causing me stress. Well, the beginning of a period of worry started today. My baby brother, my little TweedleDee, is over 3000 miles away in America. For 9 weeks and three days. Everyone keeps saying he’ll be fine, but I can’t help but worry.
I umm-ed and ahh-ed about whether or not to write about this in a public forum but I am stressed and it’s affecting my health (mouth ulcers and skin problems a-go-go). There were tears and arguments in the lead up to this, and he’ll be missing both my parent’s birthdays for the first time since he was born.
We’re a very close family and it’s going to be really weird without him and his smelly feet hanging around. I’ll cope. I think!
WIP Wednesday 26/03/2008:
Thanks to Wanda’s comment to my last post I remembered that I’d forgotten (!) about my dad’s cardigan in my WIP/UFO list. Ooops! I still haven’t done anything on it, but for a couple of very good reasons (the commissioned piece and a little something for my mum’s birthday).
Fetching for my mum:
I started these when I was in the Lake District but I’m only just finishing them. I need to have them finished for the weekend, so I should be OK.
I’m going quite steadily on the "wing", but as each row is longer than the last, I’m slowing down!
Another item I left off my list is this hat. I need to concentrate on it so I’ve not been working on it a lot. I’m 2 pattern repeats from finishing it and I’m sure I could complete it in a day if I applied myself – stay tuned!
I’m feeling very out of it anyway, regardless of where my brother is, because the Wisdom teeth on the right-hand side have decided to try and come through. I was told that it was unlikely they would ever come through because I inherited my dad’s tiny jaw and I have too many teeth for the space available!
I have an "owie". 😦
