Recovering

This whole long weekend thing was very nice, can we do it again starting tomorrow? I spent the weekend in Maryland with my mother and grandmother, and we had a lovely time, but I am T-I-R-E-D. This is probably completely my fault (I forgot all my meds, so I didn't sleep the whole weekend, and came home with a back like a board), but nonetheless, I'm recovering slowly today.

But on the positive front, a miracle occurred: I gave my grandmother her hat and IT FITS! I had no idea how big her head was, so I just felted it until it looked right and somehow it fits perfectly. And even better? She actually likes it! So, so much good luck there.

Also good, gave the Hoover to my cousin George, and he was very happy with it. His wife was not around, but he said he was sure Kathy was going to be giving me a call. XD Sadly, no pictures, as the camera batteries died before I gave anyone their gift.

No progress on knitting this weekend for two reasons:
A. I think there's a mistake in my shawl two rows ago, and I just can't face trying to work it out right now/rip back two rows.
B. I was in the middle of a really good book.
