Alright, I'm a bad blogger

I'm a horrible blogger. I know that I haven't updated in a while, but I'll be posting more later. Tonight, I'm heading out to the wilds of Elmhurst for a knitting store. Have ewe any wool is having a two-for-one sale, and of course I need more yarn. Cascade 220 is their staple, and I'd love to find some superwash to do hiking socks with.

Once again, I'm hanging out at Filter, partially because the 'net's spotty at home and for personal reasons that I'm sure you all know. So, I'll have pics that I'll post later tonight.

Project updates:
1) I finished the blue kimono sweater, and I will post the sweater pics as soon as I get home.
2) The orange leaf shawl has ten more working rows (I'm not counting the rows of straight stockinette) and the border.
3) I started a felted messenger bag that will have "F**K CANCER" on the flap. The goal is to work on my fair isle technique, but since it's felted, the technique won't be as important.

On the personal front, I'm still struggling with fatigue. I'm told that that's normal 3 months out of surgery, but I'm still amazed that I'm not the person that I was. I had my checkup recently, and I still found that I spent the week in a state of semi-terror waiting for new results to come in. My mother, a 15 year breast-cancer survivor, says that she still feels that way. Joy- something to look forward to in 15 more years.

Pics to come!
