Did ya miss me?

After a brief hiatus, I am finally back! "Where were you, Jenny?" You may wonder..well, here's the deal...First, I generally only post on Monday or Tuesday during the week, because I tend to have some free time before classes on those days, and then I have to wait until Saturday or Sunday to post. Well, last week a work-friend's father died on Monday and I couldn't think of anything to say. It was so much like when my Grampa Dominguez died that I got a little depressed. So then the week goes by and Friday there was the viewing and Saturday was the burial, reception and what I thin of as the wake (lots of drinking and fond remembering.) And that took up the whole of Saturday. "OK, so what about Sunday and Monday and TUESDAY??" Well, I'm not gonna lie to you, people...I got sick. Yup, it was almost like getting a bout of exhaustion, I was achey and tired and out of breath and just felt like garbage. I spent Sunday laying down and not even knitting!(Shocking, I know.) I spent Monday laying down and knitting. I spent half of Tuesday at work and then went home, laid on the couch, and finished up a gauge swatch so I can begin a new project. (By the way, the gauge swatch was spot on!)

In other news, I am almost done with the ribbing for the sexy little sweater and then I start the sleeves. The bad news is, I was knitting this for St. Patrick's Day in Arizona, and then I checked the'll be 90 DEGREES!!!!! NINETY!!!!! I'm super excited, but the little sweater it a wool blend. Wool, WOOL, as in warm, as in sweaty, as in not meant for 90 degree weather! So there goes that, but it'll be nice for spring here, anyway (if it ever arrives).

Now that I'm not going to be wearing the sweater for St. Pat's and the weather will be in the nineties, I'll just to have to go shopping. Awwww...too bad for me to have to shop and buy pretty things...awww...hahaha.

So that's the update, I'll be sure to post my progress on the sweater this weekend, and show you what I'm starting on now. (I'm already planning for the summer!)
