Germs, stitches, and knitting lying down.

Another week – another stitch (or twelve dozen).

WIP bedspread

I’m having trouble finding places to stretch this thing out on. I don’t have a queen-size bed, so I’ve had to go by internet research.

The blanket is almost put together. I just have two more sections, and then I need to decide on a border. ._.  I like it. I really do. But I will be happy to cross this one off the list. My biggest (literally) crochet accomplishment.

I am interested in hearing from other fiberistas on this. What is the biggest thing you’ve tackled? What were your thoughts on it? Did you have a sense of accomplishment, relief, giddiness, or something else?

I guess I’m a little maudlin on the subject right now because I’ve been sick for a few days. I’ve missed work from both jobs and lost almost five pounds already. If it weren’t for the illness and general cruddy feeling, this would be a great quickie diet. In my more lucid moments when I really didn’t feel like moving but couldn’t stand not doing something, I grabbed whatever needles were close and some scrap yarn and knit a few rows of .. not really sure what. Not something I recommend when you’re at the stage where you fall asleep on a dime, or a knitting needle. I’m feeling better now though. Lots of tea and rest mean I can be mobile for up to twenty minutes without getting dizzy. Progress! It also means that I can sit up and knit. Much safer. 🙂

ON A SIDE NOTE  After delving into this blog-thingy, I think I’ve learned a little more and become proficient in hitting the Publish button. Can I say that after only three posts and a handful of comments? Oh well. I’m going to anyway. I’ve linked my FB account and Pinterest successfully (I think). Later on I will look into themes and more customizing. And if anyone has any suggestions, I’d be happy to here them.
