Do I or Don't I

...join another swap, very tempting I tell you. Since I've missed out on the SP11 I seem to be trying to make up for it in other ways, lol. Right now I'm sitting at 4 swaps Knitter's Virtual Vacation Swap(almost complete, sent my package out a week ago), Monkey Swap 2, Hogwarts Sock Swap 2 and HSKS 3.

On the knitting front, I've got one monkey sock at the point where I'm going onto the heel, Hogwarts socks started, HSKS 3 bag pattern picked out just need to grab the wool for it. I've also been knitting up one of the patterns I've written had to frog twice, just wasn't happy with the look and the second time my knitting got shuffled around by the kids and hubby and lost 2 needles. With all the yarn overs, twists I just couldn't get it right. I'm now working the heel, the sock fits and is looking the way I want it so fingers crossed on the finished product.

I also ordered more yarn and hopefully will be fondling it by the end of next week. I picked out some Malabrigo lace after seeing Wendy's new "Easy Flame Lace Scarf" pattern(on her sidebar) I just had to get some lace weight. After the super long week both this week and last I needed a little pick me up that chocolate just couldn't provide, hehe.

Speaking of long weeks I'll give you a little breakdown of what's been going on, first working on the pattern and not getting it right with 2 trips to the pond, not to bad. I had to go into the Dr's to get my blood work results and my regular Doc is on vacation so I had one of her collegues, well that's ok because I have seen him before. So it's my turn and I wait a few minutes in the office and the Doc comes in and I tell him why I'm there and he apoligizes for not going over my results before hand, no biggie and starts reviewing them with me. First sugar levels-normal(relief after that diabetes scare a while back), than starts working down, thyriod levels are low but already new that since I'm on hypo-thyroid meds already but he checks back to my previous record from 3 months ago and it has gotten worse. I call hubby and find out the dosage and now I'm getting 1.5 times more of the previous dosage. Now we work are way to the bottom and come across some interesting numbers and he says "Wow, that doesn't look good" , I say "What" almost freaking out and he repeats himself so I ask him to fill me in and I've got my anemia back. Fuck, the way he sounded it was as if I was dying or something. Now I've got my new prescriptions and should see a change in about 6-8 weeks, I sure hope so I am very tired of being tired all the time. You know, I don't know why I didn't think of it over the last couple months when I first started feeling like crap and went in sooner for the bloodwork. I guess I just chalked it up to stress of hubby's job change. That's a whole new story and a bundle of stress to boot. Ugghh and next week the little guys start school, my baby will be in Kindergarten and I will be home alone for 2.75 hours a day unless hubby is off or working nights. This is going to be the biggest change of all, I really haven't had much time to myself especially not 4 days in a row.

Well time to get some knitting done, I'd like to get the heel done on the first Monkey sock before I start supper and wake up hubby for his last night shift.

Have a super long weekend everyone!

Considering that you'll have more time to yourself, I think you should join another swap... right?

I know you have been busy, but if you have a moment please consider posting your answers to the Q&A Contest. Those Gryffindors have entirely too much of a lead!
