So, I went to the doctor. The doctor gave me lovely pills and I slept very much and cried only a little. I lost a week of work and knitting on the DUCK, but I finished a few gifts:
Hand/Arm Warmers from Last Minute Knitted Gifts out of my Alpaca With a Twist Baby Twist (ahem, the Loopy Ewe is carrying their yarn now, just sayin'). This has become my new favorite yarn. I knit a pair of these for the HusBoy's grandmother and for my boss. Each pair took less than one ball of yarn and was a surprisingly fast and easy knit. Trust me, I was on painkillers when I knit them; it was really easy.
On the DUCK front, (sleeves actually) we are back on schedule. Many thanks to everyone who wagered on my ability to finish the HusBoy's sweater in a timely manner. I finished the Knitters Uncensored pod casts and have begun listening to Damknit, and Lime'n'Violet has a new episode, so I'm all set for some serious knitting and (hopefully) finishing.
