Tuesday 2nd May

So this week I have been knitting more of my sock - and that's about all I've knitting really - my time has been taken up by being ill & 'work crafting'

On Sunday I came over 'all peculiar' and felt dizzy and faint. We were due to go through to Livingston for the boy's sister's birthday - in the end I stayed in alone. It was awful, I couldn't knit! Gah! Nor read, nor look at the internet!

Usually when I cannot knit, I can at least read knitting magazines & books or go online and surf about knitting in blogs, yarn online shops etc. I watched tv for what felt like my entire life - bored and alone :(

And I feel funny again tonight but I am forcing myself to get my blog done - it is chucking it down outside and I have an awful sore throat and headache - is this hayfever, or a migraine coming, or a stupid cold from the students at the library [maxed out on pro-plus and lack of sleep during their exam time]? Blah - all I know is that I can't knit my sock after I publish this, and I'm feeling pretty sorry for myself right now.

Just to pile another moan on in there - my Vogue Knitting International has not yet come through - despite everyone else getting their subscriptions through a fortnight ago- and the subscriptions dept are not answering my emails. humpf! they took my money soon enough though!

OK girl - cheer up! So Brenda Dayne's Cast-on this week mentions the coolest invention ever - knitting needles with little LED lights at the tips for knitting in the dark! I think these are for the cinema, but I see myself knitting in bed while the boy sleeps ....

Anyways, I'm going to publish this now and maybe come back later in the week with some more positive ramblings

I have seen those knitting needles and they are COOL.
