I felt like crap this weekend. I woke up Saturday exhausted and dizzy and spent the day dozing while the kids watched TV (their Dad had to work). I napped off and on all day, but squeezed in some knitting whenever I was awake--I didn't have enough energy to get off the couch, but my fingers still worked.
I did have trouble with the Classic Aran though, I could not get through a row without making a mistake. So I switched to this:
Remember the Entrelac Garter Stitch Coat from Debbie Bliss Noro 1? The one I started last fall and only finished one piece of? Well I picked it up again in an attempt to get it out of the basket this spring. I whipped along on the back this weekend and really enjoyed it. With this pattern I'm only working on 9 stitches at a time so it wasn't mentally challenging. And, I remembered how fun it is to watch the Kureyon colours emerge.
Yesterday I didn't feel much better, but I managed to stay awake all day. I suspect my body was telling me to get more rest. I will be finished my results chapter this week--all I have is some proofing to do before I hand in this piece. I think I allowed myself to relax a bit and my body took it too far. I'm still tired today so I'll be good and get to bed at a decent hour again tonight.
My ass didn't move too far from the couch yesterday either and I finished the back of the Classic Aran:
The final sleeve is on the needles, so I'm a happy camper. Especially since I have yarn on the way from Elann that will want to be swatched.
Well off to do that editing. It feels SOOOOOOOO good to have this chapter almost done. I have very little left to write for the first draft (how much is something I have to work out with my supervisor) that I'm starting to see the end. It's a teeny pinpoint of light off in the distance that I have to squint to see, but at least it's in my view.
