Skull duggery

My daughter is home today from school as she has a fever of 101.7 - Hubby called me a little while ago and told me that she is also throwing up now. Poor baby. I wish I was home with her to make sure she is comfortable, even though I know hubby will take good care of her. She will miss her City Hall excursion this afternoon… and her take on that – ‘oh well, it’s only city hall’ ! hehee… out of the mouths of babes!

Monday I went to see an eye specialist regarding a Chalzion on my upper eyelid. It's a rock hard lump that is about 4-6mm. It hasto be surgically removed. So, my surgery is slated for November 23. The following day I have a check up scheduled for 8:00 am to confirm all went well. And, since eye lumps are no longer covered under OHIP, this is going to cost me over $200. Pisser.

Knitting has been going slowly, as I have startitus again, and am working on a couple scarves for my kids. I finished M's neckwarmer in time for her birthday! A's is halfway finished (bow knot neckwarmer), and I’ve just started a scarf for my son, S. It’s black and red with a skull on one end of the scarf, and crossbones on the other end. It’s coming along nicely… it’s just something that I really need to pay attention to, as it's double knitted!!! I’m also working on The Gardener socks. I started a pair (2AAT), and wasn’t sure about the pooling, so restarted them in a different colorway. Then once I got to the same length as the ‘pooling’ ones, decided to just do both pairs. So…. 4AAT. It’s interesting to say the least.

Oh, and I’ve put the Amarine coat into hibernation. I haven’t worked on it in awhile, and don’t plan on it over the next couple months, so I decided to stop pretending that I was working on it. I think my upset with this one comes from the errors in the pattern. Thankfully the designer is a great lady and willing to help, so I'm hoping to pick it back up soon. Sometimes, the magazines make terrible changes to patterns.

Well, enough for now. Gotta go. Have a great day!
