Paws Over The Nose

Some days I feel like curling up with my paws over my nose and sleeping.  I'm making a career out of Easy-Peasy Shawl and Lace Edged Cardigan.  Every time I think I only have to knit a few more inches of shawl length, I wrap it around me and say, "It should be longer."  I want to be able  to toss the end over my shoulder and be enveloped in pale turquoise yumminess .  Yep, has to be longer.  I think I will curl up with my paws over my nose.

I finished the first sleeve of the cardigan and cast on for the lace cuff of the second sleeve.  The lace section takes an unreasonable amount of time before the back and forth of the upper sleeve can be started.  One more!  I can get through one more, but first I need to take a nap with my paws over my nose!

Part of the problem is that I have not been myself this week.  ("Then, who are you?"  Mom used to ask).  I have a sore throat, sinus headache, a stiff neck, and have re-injured an old shoulder problem.  I'm a mess!!  I have kept going with all the things I usually do but I have to admit I've done them in a scaled down way.

In a few days I'll be back to chasing squirrels and barking at plastic bags blown against the fence--back to normal in other words.  I guess we all need some time off now and then, but I'll tell you this--if I ever get these two knitting projects finished it will be small, fast, easy projects for me in the foreseeable future.

Life is good, even with your paws over your nose!!

Giggle... I'm confused. I thought Katherine was writing the post, but the ending is clearly Macy. Did Katherine wander off to nap with her paw over her nose and sweet Macy had to finish it up?
