Tomorrow I'm going to my very first Alzheimer's/dementia support group meeting. I hope I don't cry there. *** The remainder of this paragraph has been redacted to protect the innocent. My apologies to the family for any hurt or embarrassment I may have caused by my original wording.***
But enough about my life drama. Let's talk knitting.
Yeah, you're going to have to get used to even more horrible than normal photos. There is just zero time in the daylight hours to knit, much less take photos of my knitting.
Although I haven't cried this week, trying to cook dinner while dealing with the sundowning behavior drove me over the edge last night and the only cure was to watch Grease 2 and sing along, out loud, to the bowling and the Cool Rider songs. Yes, I'm a total weirdo-geek. I love Grease 2 for it's ridiculous music. It's one of those movies that's so, so terrible you can't help but love it.

Sorry. I lost track of my topic. Again. I'm starting to believe dementia is contagious. Back to knitting...
I started a Weekender using Garnet Heather Wool of the Andes Tweed. I've never knit with the tweed before and I'm loving it. It's so much softer than regular Wool of the Andes. This may be my first project using WotA Tweed but it definitely won't be my last.
The Weekender is supposed to be a quick, simple knit. It's definitely simple but I have the feeling it's going to take me many, many weekends to finish it. Between my schedule and my size, you can expect to be seeing this one on the needles for a long, long time. Sorry about that. Hopefully a few of the doctors we go see will be running late occasionally and I'll have a little bit more knitting time.
Only a knitter would wish for lengthy waiting room time.
Oh, and help me wish my baby girl a happy birthday today. How in the heck did my baby girl get to be 23??
