M & M

Maplewing!

I have managed to cast on 600 stitches, and knit across the first row. I counted, I double counted, I sectioned off bits so I’d only have to count smaller amounts, and still, as I ended the row, I was one stitch short. So I just increased in a stitch to pick it up.

Not much to see yet,

The shawl in progress is thinking that if it lays next to the photo of the completed shawl, it’ll get done faster, or better, or something.

I used to put my organic chemistry book under my pillow. And I got an A in that class, so maybe this proximity thing works.

the other M thing

Yee gads, if you’ve gone through this thing and are out the other side, whole and sane, please let me know. It gets better, yes?

I think 27 of the 34 symptoms hit me in one week. It’s #3 making me most crazy (and rather exhausted) lately… on a week, off a week or week and a half, on a week, off a week, on a week…

    It’s a good thing I never read that list of 34 symptoms before. I would have had every single one. As it is, I only had a few.

    Not going to follow that link, or I’ll think myself right into periM.

    600 stitches! You really are brave!!! And, don’t you just hate it when you count and count and then knit it and come up one stitch short!

    On the other “M” – yes, you do come out of it! Eventually – some times I still get night sweats – but I’ve been over it a long time and I did not use any medications!!!

    Unfortunately, I think I have at least 25 of those symptoms right now too. The flushed face and hot flashes hit me hard about two weeks ago and I felt OLD!

    Yep, been there, done that — actually am still doing some of them. So are you going to Frolic? Please say yes.

    So why does the woman on the web page look so liberated? From what I hear, she’s not fooling anybody…

    Good luck with Maplewing! Can’t wait to see it as it progresses!

    I love it that you put your organic chem book under your pillow and came out with an A! I’m trying the technique, but not telling what book I’m using. Another good scheme is worrying so whatever it is you’re worrying about won’t come true. Works every time.
