This little dog is going away today. I will miss him terribly, but I will not miss his habit of going to the bathroom in the house. I would keep him if not for that. This is going to be sad for me.
I guess I should warn you, this post is likely to be weird. Since yesterday I have had terrible vertigo. Last night the room was spinning and I couldn’t read because the letters were worming around. I honestly think it might be from endless knitting, nose down, intense concentration, for hours and hours and hours. It is quite unpleasant.
The hat didn’t get completed in time yesterday. I will have it done when they get back from the Christmas trip to her parents’. The minute they walked out the door last night, I started the infinity scarf for the daughter I am spending Christmas with. I may even be able to knit for an hour or so before work today – if I stop goofing around with this blog!
But I have to tell you… yesterday I was showing my knitting to one of my favorite docs. Then she told me about the blanket I made for her now 5 year old daughter. I asked her how it had held up – and she said it is still beautiful. Now that her daughter is 5, she lovingly covers her baby dolls with it and tells them the blanket was knit by Mary. Even though she never met me! Now that made all those stitches seem worthwhile. I love to knit and I give 99% of the stuff I knit away, it is nice to hear every now and then that the recipient enjoyed the gift and that the stuff is lasting!
Have a Merry Christmas Eve. I am working this day for the first time in my life. But I had an employee who so humbly asked for the day off, I was willing to work so she could take it off. And that could never be a bad thing.
