Too long!

Sorry it has been a while since my last post, life here has been plodding along as ever although we have had a bit of a readjustment in terms of meds for Ted which has resulted in me no longer having to get up at 6am for his first lot of tablets. I can now have a lie in until 7am which is lovely although I do still have to get up at 2am and he now has a full lot of tablets then as well as his injection. There are many hours of sleep still to catch up on but along with the lighter mornings I am feeling much more perky. Ted is much better too and the cardiologist is stunned that he is doing so well now and finally putting some weight back on after all he has lost recently.

On the knitting front I have made a little progress with the sheep blanket

but most of my time has been taken up with the linen top of doom (we had a small sizing hiccup so back to the start it went)
and a small shawl that I can knit when it is too dark to see the dark linen yarn.
I have been using the continental method for everything except the linen top as the yarn has no give in it and I really love this method of working. I hope that now I am a little less tired that I can increase my knitting output as I have so much to do and a little more energy to do it with. I trust that all is well with you all. Sx
