Normally, I try to blog each day and sometimes “backblog” if I miss a day or two. I’ve been pretty tired over the last few days (some reasons will reveal themselves) so here’s one big whopper of a post to get the blog up to date.
Friday was a night to relax and enjoy. I did a wee bit of knitting on the Vintage Gloves and watched TV. I nearly finished one glove (after many mis-starts with the wrong needle size and horribly wrong gauge). It was a good time.
Saturday I spent again doing some knitting and a fair bit of straightening up. I also did yoga. I love MTV’s Yoga DVD. It is pretty basic but shows you various degrees of difficulty for each move. It also features BT djing in the background. Since I heart BT, this makes me very happy. The 45 minutes of yoga did kick my butt a bit and I’ve been sore, especally in the arms, for the past two days. I look forward to my next yoga session (possibly tomorrow).
Later in the day La Petite Tricoteuse and The Captain came over and we hung out, knitting and listening to tracks off of Blip.fm (which is like Twitter but for music). The Captain and I were having a techno party moment, which La Petite Tricoteuse would break up with other genres. It was pretty fun just listening to music and chatting. I also cast on another L’illo Sweater for some mindless knitting fun. We also discovered Lucky Vito’s pizza. I have to say ground beef and onion is mighty delish!
Saturday night I didn’t get much sleep due to some “noise” coming from my upstairs neighbor’s place—about three hours of sleep to be exact. So Sunday I walked around my apartment like a zombie. I did get a bunch of knitting done despite my handicap, finishing the Vintage Gloves late that night and one of the Simple Purple Socks I’m making for a friend. I only worked on L’illo for a bit as a break from the US 0, since it’s being worked on US 4.
That brings us to today (aka Monday). I went to my new dentist last week and found out I needed quite a bit of dental work. I don’t know why this should come as a surprise considering I have awful teeth, but it never seems to shock me. I have the day off today so I got the first bit of work done: a crown. I already have three, so that brings my total to the nice even number of four. By the end of this work, I’ll add two more to my resume. It really wasn’t that bad, even though I hate going to the dentist. I showed up to the office and found out that nitrous oxide is free. Well, sign me up for that! I haven’t had that since I was a kid. It really took the edge off and helped me get through the procedure. My tooth is hurting a bit now. Oh well, guess that’s an excuse to have some ice cream. One of the great things about this dentist is that the whole crown procedure is in one visit. So there’s a small break where I did some knitting on the second Simple Purple Socks, but you don’t have to deal with the silly temporary crown business.
After the apointment, I ran some errands and headed home to get back to my knitting, specifically the Vintage Gloves. All I had left after last night’s binge of knitting was to weave in all the ends. It took awhile, but here they are.
I’m by myself right now so I can’t get a posed shot of me wearing the gloves right now. Hopefully in the near future I will.
