For all of you patiently waiting for me, I'll try to be more frequent!

The neurologist thinks it may be as many as 5 more weeks for the migraine to get under control. Can we all say "whoopee!" sigh

Because of that, the doll house has been moved to Nathan's room. The spinning wheel and books on tape are now in our bedroom. Serena's bedroom has the one window which wasn't blocked off from sunlight blocked, so I can do stuff there too! So, we're going to "make the best of a bad situation.

I thought about trying to name the headache, thinking that it had been in residence so long, it deserved it, but then I decided that I didn't want to personify it THAT much!

Tried to wind off 2 ounces of the beautiful silk today. With great forethought (hah!) I weighed the ball winder. Wrote the weight on it in ounces and grams. Wound the ball of silk, weighed the amount I thought was correct, (WITH the winder, so if it wasn't correct I could make adjustments), and I was short an ounce. I think this means I am SUPPOSED to be giving people 1 ounce balls instead of 2. sigh At least, that is how I'm going to interpret it!

The races (auto) have started. So, to cover the "lovely" noise of racing car engines, I'm going to put on a book on CD and try to knit. Enjoy your day!

I just saw a photo of your "Clapotis" (sp???) shawl at Margaret Pittman's/Heritage Yarn's Web site. It's gorgeous! No, it's beyond gorgeous! And when I was in Gulfport, MS, for the Southeast Fiber Forum, any number of folks were talking about the "Clapotis" shawl. I should've asked for information then, but did I????? Noooooo.

Anyway, is this your pattern? Is this a pattern that's in a book or magazine? Where, o where, do I find this pattern? I'm in a shawl-knitting phase--do you go through these phases?--and I'd love to make one. Please feel free to get in touch with me at if you'd like.

And I relate to going to the hospital for migraine treatment. Happened to me: had a killer headache that would not leave and ended up having to go to the ER. Arrrghhhhhhh. I hope you're feeling better.
