entrelac

At the beginning of this month, I took a dyeing class at a fiber retreat that my LYS hosted--Didn't I mention that in the last post? I tink so. I also took an entrelac class. Did I mention that part before? Did I yak about the fact that I now know how to knit backwards? Yeah. It's fun. I made a hat, see?

I'm kind of empty of words tonight. I've got a stoopid pinchy nerve in my hip and I'm currently dizzy/pukey from the stoopid pain medication that I tried out today. I'm squeezing in one last post for the month because if I don't I'll be in trouble with the Secret Pal peoples (4 posts per month, it's not too much to ask!). I don't think I'll do the next round of SP, but I don't want to be blacklisted, ya know? I feel myself pulling back from the blogging stuff, and I think it's mostly because of the aforementioned stoopid pinchy nerve. I'm not functioning terribly well in real life, let alone as a knitblogger. No worries, though. The pinchy nerve will not be around forever. But right now I just feel Stoopid. I like spelling it that way. We must find pleasure in the little things...

Oh no Val, I'm sorry that your stoopid nerve is still giving you fits. We missed you last week, and probably will again this week eh?
I love the hat, it turned out great and Pee Wee looks great in it :)

Oh, man, that sucks. I hope you feel better soon. Pinchy nerves are totally stoopid, indeed!

Hey Val,

I'm so sorry you're having troubles with your back. I went through a horrible spell a few years back. Herniated disc - you have a million sympathies from me. If you are looking for a good alternative to the puky pain meds, ask your doc for a Rx for Physical Therapy. I went from unable to sit up without screaming in pain to walking with trekking poles in less than a week, once I got in with a good physical therapist. They have all sorts of magical tricks and stretches that actually help heal the problem rather than just masking it with meds. I hope you are happily blogging and spinning soon. Take care of yourself! Amanda

Hope you feel better soon! Do you get to knit a little at least or does everything hurt?

Val, I've been meaning to around to talking to you(and everyone else) but when both kids and the hus are sick, what can you do. I'm still in shock that I met shoeless at Yarn School. I can never believe how much other mom-knitter-spinners can achieve. You knit and spin beautifully and it was fun talking to you at YS. Hope you're feeling better and hooray for pee-wee's new skills.--Felicia
