Mim's Knitting Frenzy

Follow the dark and skeery path into the dank recesses of Miriam's mind. There you will find many a knitting needle and the occasional ominous crochet hook. Sinister looking book presses and towering stacks of paper. Where various handcrafts lurk waiting to pounce on the unsuspecting...

Most fantastical weekend EVER!

So there were alot of shitty things about this weekend, I shall enumerate:

1. Wrist/Arm pain. Yes, I've been all but officially diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Bah! I bought a brace and I'm trying it out (switching between wrists) to see if it helps. If it does, I will but another and wear them at work and to sleep, so I can take them off in the evenings and knit fast (they slow me down).

2. The first snow. God I hate winter! Sure does make the mountains pretty though.

3. Bacterial Vaginosis pain and woes. I won't go into it, it's definitely TMI.

But then Sunday morning came.

I was just about to leave to go chat with some friends, like... hand-on-the-doorknob ready to leave, when the phone rang. I deliberated for a second on whether I should answer or not, and I decided, what the hell, my friends will probably be late anyway. So I went to the phone and it wasn't a number I recognized. So again I hesitated. But I answered it anyway because it's a Sunday morning, so why not give it a chance. And I'm so glad I did. Because it was Pam Allen. Yes, THAT Pam Allen!

Interweave Knits is going to publish Icarus! I got off the phone with Pam and started screaming. I woke C up, and he congratulated me and promptly fell back asleep. I was giddy all day! I just kept bursting into giggles. EEeeeehehehehehheheheh! I'm so excited!
