My adventures in learning to machine knit and whatever comes to mind

This has been another bad week

Lots of rain, doesn’t want to stop, and making me ache like crazy, plus I’ve been suffering with a stomach virus, and feeling awful.  I’ve not been able to get motivated to do anything at all that I don’t have to do.

I am getting closer to getting my car on the road, so that is a blessing, maybe next week, if luck holds.  Then I will be able to get to the doctors to have this lump in my back checked out, and also to the dentist to get my tooth pulled, which isn’t going to be fun. I have to take massive doses of antibiotics before they can pull it, or I risk an infection in my heart, so that means two trips down the mountain, and two trips back up it, just to get one tooth pulled!

Will probably be lots of waiting around both visits, so best have some knitting ready to go with me.  I found this hat pattern a few days ago, and I want to make it, maybe I will save it for then.  Should be pretty mindless knitting so will work.  I got on a hat knitting kick while I was laid up in bed this winter, and even though I knitted up four of them, I still want to make more!

I will be so happy to get it out though, it has made me really miserable, to say nothing of not being able to eat much.

I finally got a lot of sleep last night, so I do feel a little better today, plus I think I am coming out of this latest fibro flare.  I sure hope so!

Good news is, they say the rain should be going away soon, and hopefully it will warm up, and we will get some sunshine!  I am sick of rain and temps in the 50’s.  Maybe Bo and I can even get back to taking some short walks.


Bond Elite knitting machine ribber wanted

I have a friend who is searching for a ribber for the Bond ELITE knitting machine.  This is the 7mm mid gauge machine, not the ISM/USM 8mm.

They are in the UK, so you must be willing to ship there.  If you are already in the UK, that is great!  Leave me a message here, and I will put you in contact with them.

Last week was a terrible week…

I’m praying this one is much better.  It has to be, I don’t think I could stand two of them in a row.  It seemed like everything went wrong last week, and I had to keep reminding myself, “This too, shall pass.” just to keep from totally losing it.

I’ve been trying to sell some stuff, so I can get a car on the road, and be able to get to the doctor and dentist, but its not going well at all.  Not sure which way to turn now, guess I will have to dig out more items to try to sell.

Too make matters worse, we’ve been having more thunderstorms, and the barometer has been going crazy, and I’m in the middle of a big fibro flare, took me three tries just to get out of bed this morning, and my knees have been giving me fits, and I’ve almost fallen a dozen times today.

I’m up much too late, need to get to bed, have to get up early and finish up some things I started working on last week.

Will be listing more machine knitting things soon, so if you are looking for anything, keep watch to see what turns up.

Going to go to bed now, hopefully things will look brighter in the morning.
