Things have been moving pretty slow around here. I'm still making—I sewed a sweater dress last weekend, and a nightgown for an american girl, and I am knitting, and folding a lot of paper, but my buzzzzziness is slow. I am on week 5 of a horribly inflamed sciatica which is keeping me down. The mornings are excruciating for about 10 minutes and then I feel about 80% normal, except sitting is hard—so I am now one of those people toting my own foam wedge around so I can sit on it, and not on the floor, which was, at best, a fire safety hazard in most public places. I am seeing a wonderful acupuncturist for this and feel I am on the med, when I am in a good mood. When I'm not is a good mood, well, you know how that goes.
Anyhoo, the slow deliberateness of paper folding is making me happy, and I am now into folding hearts as many different ways I can find on the internet, which is a lot. I'm not sure why I am so delighted by being able to get the same shape so many different ways, but I am. I think I used this pattern for this heart.
I also just got hip to Brain Pickings, which can be a real time-suck, in a good way.
In knitting—the sweater body is almost done. I keep getting sleeve excitement, only to realize I'm not ready yet. I also have realized I'm not so good at just straight knitting, which I find amusing. Little dropped stitches and weird wraps, I never realized I did this.
