The Star Wars Knitting Goddess

knitting and sci-fi - is there anything else??? The ramblings of a crazed mother/wife/student/sci-fi fan as related to knitting (usually).

I am offically stir crazy

It may be somewhat true that my sanity has been somwhat spotty since having children. I'm not sure what it is about the children that makes what's left of my sanity leak out of my left ear but I am absoutely sure that it has leaked out. Add this to my SLOW recovery from a cystectomy and you have a woman who is beyond ready to leave the house. (Note - I have been in the house since Sunday afternoon. It is now Thursday afternoon.) I'm ready to go almost anywhere. Going to have a root canal sounds appealing.
On another note, I am going to take the spinning class on Saturday. I have to go get some of the supplies for the class. I'd like to drive out there but I'm not supposed to drive. I was thinking of driving out there anyway. Oh - alright. I won't actually drive there but I've got to get out of here.
Any ideas??

Quick update

I do apologize for not updating more. I'm recovering from surgery and it's slow going. I haven't gotten much knitting done either. I'm too sleepy.
I have to post a picture of the best gift I got through the mail.
It will have to wait until tomorrow.

An update

I have been neglecting the old blog lately but I have good reason. I got an awful cold while in Missouri and then woke up Tuesday morning with a horrible pain in my abdomen. After a couple of days of the usual run around, they found a cyst. Bottom line is that I'm going in for surgery on Tuesday. I was considering waiting for a week or two but I'm feeling a little worse today - although the cold is much better.
I checked out Cat Bordhi's book about knitting socks on two circular needles and I can't wait to try it. Maybe there will be a yarn store visit later today. (Remember, the yarn store is literally 2 blocks from the house. Dangerous, I know!)
My help has arrived. More with pictures of my very first sock coming soon!
