I'm sorry...

I haven't blogged in ages. I'm sorry. You see, for the first time in my life (and that's longer than most of the KOL attendees have been alive), I've been affected by seasonal allergies. Honestly, I've NEVER had hayfever before, but this year it's been the bane of my existence. I never had much sympathy for allergy sufferers before (okay, your nose is running and you sneeze a lot, big deal, what's a little snot and the odd sneeze anyway?). Well, now I know. I suppose I deserve it for my formerly unsympathetic attitude. A constantly runny nose and endless sneezes really are unpleasant, and stressful, and make you feel very sorry for yourself. And I'm so darn tired cause it's hard to sleep when you're all stuffed up. Those of you out there with allergies, you now have my sympathy.

On the knitting front, no pictures. I took the camera batteries out to charge, left them charging all night, then realised they weren't rechargeables. Doesn't seem to have affected the charger, luckily, so I'm currently charging the real rechargeable batteries. I have finished a sock. My first FO since I can't remember when. Probably the lace scarf I knit with the celestial merino--when was that? At least 3 months ago. I have startitis and indecision and KADD (Knitting Attention Deficit Disorder). I really need to be infected with finishitis--anybody got that? Is it contagious? Anyway, if I could just bring myself to cast on the second sock, I might get somewhere--the first finished sock isn't really an FO, not by itself anyway, although I did hear a rumour that the Garter Stitch Goddess found evidence of another KOL member wearing her first sock around the house while still knitting the second sock, so maybe a single sock can be useful in it's own right? Maybe you have cold foot, not cold feet? I don't know--lack of sleep is making me babble.
