We are in the midst of an Upper Respiratory Infection Infestation. Ladybug probably brought it into the house; she’s almost fully recovered. Poor Pigeon has so much mucus, and she HATES that bulb nasal aspirator. I went ahead and splurged on the fancy-pants aspirator at Babies R Us today – we’ll see if she likes it better. Or if it works better.
I’ve been furiously knitting on the Baby Bells. See?
I’ve already purled the turning row, so I’ve got all of 6 rows to knit and the finishing to do.
Guess what? I’m knitting combination-style now. I never really understood why someone would choose to knit combination (other than having been taught that way), but then I saw Annie Modesitt‘s episode of Knitty Gritty (Oh how I love thee, my DVR). My purls have always been looser than my knits, and this combination knitting has really helped tighten them up. I still need practice to speed the purling up, though.
I tried to take a picture of my bad toenail to give everyone an update, but it just didn’t turn out and even Photoshop couldn’t save it. I finally went to a Podiatrist and he trimmed the nail down and stuff. He even used a Dremel on it! I was almost hoping he’d remove the nail. Maybe when I go back in 2 weeks.
Well, now I’ve got to get these pants finished if I want Pigeon to wear them to visit the Harlot next week.
