We're still here. Barely.

My Knit Sib, Cindy, sent an email asking how ToolMan and I were doing. I'm glad she did, because posting here had escaped my memory, so my response to her was most of what I'm posting here.

I feel like I haven't seen anybody in weeks! I know everyone was at Sock Summit, but I didn't really get a chance to just sit and knit and chat. Plus, I missed Wednesday knit night before and after Sock Summit.

ToolMan got to come home on Wednesday, which was my first day at back at work so our son Chris sat at the hospital until he was released. He is REALLY tired; napping both morning and afternoon so I've been doing dinner duty and getting Andy fed and shots, so both of us have been to bed early all week. By Saturday, I needed to catch up on laundry that hadn't been done in 2 weeks. There was just too much to do and I was too tired to get downtown for Spinnerati on Saturday.

I'm finishing up the round yoke cardigan this weekend; the body and both sleeves are done so only the button bands to remain to finish. I stopped at Joann's yesterday and found the perfect buttons. I'm making up the pattern as I go, but since it's top down construction I've been able to try it on as I go and adjust as necessary. I'll post pictures after it's been finished and blocked.

I have been spinning up the grey Jacob and some of the locks from the Exploded Clown box, but not much to look at yet. I'll post pictures of the yarn after it's been finished.

That's all for now; I'll try to post later in the week with the finished sweater. In the meantime, to paraphrase Elizabeth Zimmerman, "Knit on through all crises."


  1. Missed you at Spinnerati! Tami & Leila got me going. I hope both you and Toolman get some rest and feel better. Knit on!

  2. Let me know if you need anything! I can even come over to knit if you'd like :)

  3. Take things easy. East wisely. exercise moderately. Good luck on the new job. You remain in my prayers.

  4. Tell ToolMan to get better soon. And you take care of yourself so you don't end up a patient, too.

    Let me know if I can do anything. We miss you on Wednesdays, but you need to take care of things at home and we will struggle on without you. :-)

  5. I can also come over during the day to check on Toolman if that's needed, or take Andy for walks. Let me know if there's any way that I can help.

  6. Thinking of you and ToolMan. Hope he's feeling better ASAP. I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it to knit night this week, but I hope you can and that you'll be there next week!

    Hugs to you both. ^o^ Sharon

  7. I hope both of you are getting plenty of rest. Hang in there.
