Work has been really crazy, and I've come home very tired. This is partly because I'm still learning about my job, partly because I am now supervising very different staff with very different needs, and partly because there's just a lot to do. So I haven't managed to knit much, but I have done a little.
Saturday evening I finally finished the Jo Sharp sofa cushion. Though this picture has slightly odd colors, in real life the pillow matches the sofa well:
The Jo Sharp Aran Tweed is lovely soft stuff, but it tears really easily. You know, like if you look at it sideways, or sneeze. Also I didn't realize, when I knit this, that the pattern for the pillow called for just the Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran, not the tweed; the plain yarn would have shown the pattern better, but, oh well. I still like the pillow. It's good for hugging.
Also, I am NEARLY done with my 2nd sock of this pair:
Sooooo close. But I haven't knit on it in a couple of days.
I had to have three cavities filled last night -- one in upper right (only a temporary, alas, which will need at least two more visits/more novocaine) and two in the lower left. Today my mouth is just one big ow. It feels like I got punched in the jaw a lot. I am nursing my misery with a huge bowl of Ralston at the moment. I feel transported back to childhood.
