So this Life Interference thing is just not letting up. The boy developed severe abdominal pain yesterday evening, resulting in a sleepless night and a long morning at ER (I'm totally impressed with our local medical system, though.) It looked a lot like appendicitis for a while, but looks more like a simple viral gastro now, so we are spending the day on the couch.
Is it wrong that, with the possibility of a prolonged trip to the big city hospital in mind, I headed to ER with 2-3 days worth of knitting on board?
I started this a few days ago, wanting something mindless (both for Market knitting, and because that is pretty much all I'm capable of lately.) It is an.... evolving design (as in, I've changed my mind twice already, which is a most excellent perogative of top-down construction) - starting from my love of rustic yet graceful shawls like the Wool Peddler's (especially this variation), but tempered by the painful realization that I still haven't worked out a lifestyle / wardrobe / body shape combo that causes me ever to wear shawls. Despite having a vast array of spectacular yarns at my fingertips, I reached for the rustic, hardwearing, lanolin-ey, wooliness of Briggs and Little Regal. I could easily carry/dye the stuff, but I keep holding off for fear I'm the only one who really loves it.
