so tired.....must finish....
ok, so the last couple weeks have been kinda rough. or is it the last month? i can't remember anymore. all i know is January disappeared somewhere, and this caused some kind of immunal disaster in me, because i got sicker than i've been in years. a nasty case of bronchitis that kept me in bed for 4 whole days, to say nothing of the extra days on either side where i got to be all proud of myself for sitting upright or even, lord-ha-mercy! getting my own tea. and just when i was feeling up to draggin my sorry butt back to work, i got taken along on a trip to Switzerland to attend a meeting about the project proposal i'm helping with. this did not help. it was all kind of hurried and stressful, and involved a long train ride both ways with several change-overs, so i couldn't really get some more much needed rest like i was hoping. and for whatever reason i slept really poorly the night we stayed there, so what happened? yup, sick again. yippee!

and, um....knitting? that's the kicker. all that time on my hands, and i felt too awful to even knit! at least the first time around. but now that i'm at least in better knitting form, i am determined to finish the 2 projects i once hoped to have done shortly after christmas (yeah right!), the cable sweater for Matthias, and the shawl for my Oma. i have to admit the sweater was just sitting around for a while only because i really didn't feel like sewing the darn thing together and picking up the stitches for the neckline, but now it's finally done!!! WOOHOO! and it looks so darn purdy! i admit the neckline is a bit funky, but i've never done a separate neckline before, so it's not bad for a first try :) and i'm not done the shawl, but it's close, even though it weighs about a TON and i can't work on it for too long or my hands and wrists start to hurt :P otherwise i'm sure it would have been done a while ago.

at any rate, tomorrow the Knitting Olypmics start and i was hoping to join in, but only if i had my other projects taken care of. and, you know, if i could decide what to knit.
