The Good, The Bad, The Really Ugly and the Really Big!

First off, sorry for the complaining... second, I apologize for the gross picture.

Let me begin by referencing some of the wonderful kinds of needles in this world. There are straight knitting needles, circular knitting needles, double pointed knitting needles, wood knitting needles, plastic knitting needles, metal knitting needles, sewing needles, embroidery needles, sewing machine needles, quilting needles, pine needles and even cacti needles are great (if you're a cactus).

But regardless of the benefits to mankind, I HATE hypodermic needles. Even after 3+ years of daily injections my hands still shake and I dread it every time. And yes, I am grateful for medical break throughs, and I'm even more grateful for Health Insurance, but the shots still suck. Tonight's left a lump and rash on my stomach and this is becoming the rule rather than the exception (hence the gross photo).

At this point I want a hot bath, a pair of my favorite knitting needles and lots yarn. I love the Clover Bamboo because they feel good but they don't break as easily as the Brittany and I'm rather accident prone!

Oh yeah, the really big too. I finished knitting a yet-to-be felted slipper for my father. He normally wears a 12 1/2 or 13 shoe, but these look enormous. Several trips through the washing machine will tell.

Happy Knitting and Good Evening to all!

Blogs are where one can complain and feel better...don't ya think?

(Hug) are a brave-heart, Ms. Heide. A shot every night... I am so "not" a shot-girl, I truly do not know how I survived have three babies.

I hope you were able to get the hot shower/bath and were able to knit to your hearts content. I'm still working on that second sock...watched "Silver Bells", a Hallmark movie, hard to knit when I actually want to watch a movie.

Yup...big slippers...but you are the "felting queen", so I know you will have those bad-boys whipped into the correct size before long.

Take it easy...I'm off to knit and pray for lots of snow...a day of knitting by the woodstove sounds warranted, don't you think?

Thank you for your comment on my blog I didn't have your email address so I thought I'd reply to you this way! :-)

Re. the butter knives: I am contemplating selling them on ebay, but at the moment I am still fighting my guilt over selling a wedding gift...

And thank you for your comments re. my orange Hourglass Sweater. I can't wait to finish it, and I will definitely post a picture when it's done. :-)

And last but not least, no need to apologise. As many people have pointed out to me in the last few weeks, write what you feel like - a blog is a bit like a personal journal.
