life with a chronic disease and a really big yarn stash
Rocking the Week #1
This is so annoying: here we are at the end of another week and I have NO finished objects to show off. How can this be? The house is littered with projects that I have started or are planning to start soon… I tell myself that I’m just organizing and it will all come together soon. There’s no reason why I can’t have more than one knitting project cast on, right? As long as I’m in single digits I don’t have a problem! Seriously, that is a true statement: ask any knitter. I am reading books like crazy. Lots is going on, but I’m struggling to put together one theme that would be suitable for a blog post.
So, why don’t I just show you my week? Really, it will be fun. Here are all the moments of the week that prompted me to pull out the camera.
This evening I finished a fingerless (production knitting) mitt that I started last week and cast on another pair of socks. I now have four knitting projects in progress and a warped loom that I can start weaving on next week. Whew! There’s a lot going on.
Stay tuned for next week. I’m sure I’ll have something done by then. 🙂
I weave, knit and read in Aurora, Colorado where my garden lives. I have 2 sons, a knitting daughter-in-law, a grandson and two exceptionally spoiled kittens. In 2014 I was diagnosed with a serious rare autoimmune disease called systemic sclerosis along with Sjogren's Disease and fibromyalgia.

Two rows at a time will get you there…one warp at a time will get you there, well, maybe…but closer. I see progress, some days it just takes longer to be noticeable;-). Nice work, love the place markers. They look like a couple that were sent to me from a swap a few years back…it doesn’t seem that long.
That’s right! I just need to keep working away. It’s a process anyway, righr?
I love the willow tree figurines, I have several and Abi has a few including that one, they are so simple and yet beautiful. Your warping sounds challenging especially with cat help! I love your FO’s 🙂 Enjoy your weekend.
The Willow Tree figurine just makes me feel good every time I look at it. I think I need more!!
Yes, one you start you’re hooked!!😉
Looks like you were pretty busy. Little bits of progress get you there even if it doesn’t feel like it. Your stitch markers are very nice!
That’s what I tell myself; I am making progress and eventually they will all be finished. Probably on the same week.
What a lovely week! Your stitch markers are gorgeous and I love all of your yarns 🙂 Speaking of your breathing issues…have you looked into the diagnosis of PAH (Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension) or IPAH (Idiopathic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension)? My cousin has it and it was very difficult to diagnose. It’s often mistaken for COPD or Asthma.
Right now they are looking at interstitial lung disease; the PFT supports that diagnosis so I think a lung CAT scan is right around the corner. I am at high risk for PAH so I’m going to ask for another echocardiogram when I talk to my rheumatologist. I’m so sorry to hear your cousin has PAH. As one of my doctors said, it’s good to have a diagnosis, but also a shame.
I watched the movie Bridge of Spies last night and loved the captured Russian spy who painted and refused to worry. “Would it help?” He replied when asked why he didn’t worry. That’s me, knitting away, waiting for lab results. 🙂
