Ms. Passionknitly is MIA

Aye, that I am.

Sorry kids, and this post isn't really anything except telling you that I'm still alive, I'm still knitting and I'm suffering hardcore from the worst sinus infection in my life. A bullet to my head would hurt much less than what's going on in my head right now.

Quick status update:

  • Baby Bobbi Bear: Just need to sew the ears on and duplicate stitch around the neck (hopefully that'll cinch in the head a bit so it'll look more like a bear. Then I have to embroider the facial features. That should be fun. Deadline is Saturday. The baby shower's at noon!

  • Icarus Shawl: We're making progress but we still have a long way to go. I've got about thirty rows yet before I'm done with chart one.

  • Brother's Sweater My GOD. I can't quite get the gauge right. Because it involves a ton of thinking, I'm dropping it until this sinus infection goes away.

Right now I think I'm going to cast on for another pair of Jaywalkers. I jsut need a project right now that I don't have to think about.

That's all I've got right now. Rhinebeck was, indeed, a blast! But my head just hurts so much that I can't deal with explaining it's awesomeness right now (yup, it hurts that bad!). More to come...

Feel better soon! Can't wait to see your stash. Hey I'm thinking of doing a giant afghan like you for a wedding gift, tell me I'm crazy...

Sorry you're feeling so sick. It was nice running into you, though so briefly, at Rhinebeck. Feel better soon!

Yuck, I hope you feel better soon! Have you tried using a Neti Pot? It's one of those sinus-cleansing pots, you can get them at and my dad and brother swear by it--they used to get sinus infections all the time and they don't get them at all anymore, now that they use the Neti Pot. Anyway, hope that helps!

Thanks Jess, but my doctor's got me on an antibiotic, a heavy duty decongestant and a nasal spray, and if that doesn't work I'm totally up a creek without a paddle!

Mud, that's not too too bad, just don't do it in the summer and you'll be fine!!! :)

PixieNYC, forgive me, but I don't quite remember who you are in RL!
