Friday Shuffle - Meeting My Commitments Anyway Edition

Sorry to be a drag but this week has not been a good one. I came down with a UTI a few days ago which has done an outstanding job at making me miserable. Trust me, if I'm up, washed and dressed at 7am - if I even am awake enough to acknowledge the existence of 7am - in order to go to the doctor by 7:30am in hopes that she'll fit me in long enough for me to wee in a plastic cup and get a script for antibiotics, I'm miserable. And now the antibiotics is making my digestive system all wonky.

Envy me. You know you want to.

And remind me not get myself tangled up in too many knitting projects all due at the same time. I should know that one on my own but evidently I missed the memo reminding me that I suck at getting things done on time without it being a big production. I did, however, finish the scarf that I had originally wanted complete two days ago if I was to stand a chance of getting a pair of socks done by the end of the month.

Here's the proof:


Yarny-type talk:
Pattern: One Row Handspun Scarf
Yarn: Fearless Fibers Alpaca and Wool DK
Colorway: Tulips
Yarn gifted by: Kara

Expect much weeping and gnashing of teeth as I try to get socks finished by next weekend but finish them I will because not finishing them would mean me breaking a streak I've got going. Plus concentrating on sock knitting will get me out of vacuuming. Again.

I've had a UTI one time and it might be the most misery I've ever felt. I'm so sorry to hear you are suffering with this, it completely sucks!! I hope you're feeling better.

Thinking of you and missing you like mad.

The scarf is gorgeous. I have no idea how you do that, you are so talented.
