Things that cut into my yarn budget: Off of Work and Out of Commission

The last couple of weeks have been ...interesting. Part of me wants to blog all the gory details, but I know some parts of your life are best left off of the Internet, however "interesting" they may be.

The main gist of it is health problems. A hospitalization. Lots of non-knitting, yet craving to knit. I'm not quite functioning like a normal person.

I'm taking some time off of work right now to get things straightened out some more. Which means I'm living off my parents. My meager savings won't go far. And I have more hospital bills. And did I mention my insurance *claims* I haven't met deductible yet? At least I can fix that. I hope.

Sadly, Decimal will have to wait. Spending $40-$50 on KnitPicks yarn is usually doable, but not right now. It's stash knitting.

In between all this my Photogenic Scarf is stuck in my desk at work. I really, really, really want to knit that scarf. I need to find something equally soothing to knit. In my stash. ASAP.

(I hope my boss took that orange out of my desk like I asked. Otherwise it's going to start stinking up the place.)

I don't have it in my to do World Wide Knit in Public Day at the Capitol tomorrow. But I will be at The Knitting Nest to see Franklin Habit. I can't afford the class though (it's probably full anyway), but I'll probably pick up his book and get it signed.

I really want my scarf back.

could you send Jules to get the scarf? I know how soothing it would be to you, and particularly because you want that scarf, and it would be nice of him to do... I know I'd do it if you would give me directions!

I'm glad you're back in lala-land! Cause no matter which way you slice it, the hospital just sucks!

I know I never say it enough, and it seems hollow to say it only when you need to hear it, but you are one of the most incredible people I know! You rock! That's why I love you!

okok I'll stop before we both start sobbing....

I am thinking of you and hope your recovery goes quickly. Please take care of yourself so we can knit together again some time soon.
