Whew! The pelvic ultrasound was nearly painless – apart from the pressing on a full bladder (required) and the ouchy spot. I was kind of disappointed that I didn’t get to see my innards. Guess they think that I would gross out. Not! I find the whole thing fascinating. The technician said that nothing was out of the ordinary and there’s probably nothing to worry about but that my doc was the last word on that. He’ll only call me if he has any concerns so at this point, no news is good news. Moving right along.

Lately I’ve been feeling kind of…subdued? Not tired. Not depressed. But not really excited about working on all the projects that are lined up waiting for me. I haven’t even planted any seeds after all that kafuffle getting the ones I wanted. Instead I’ve been sleeping deeply and long – not leaping up at the crack of dawn like I usually do – and sitting reading and knitting a lot. Maybe it’s the time of year. Or something. Guess I shouldn’t worry about it. So far this year I’ve finished a pair of knee socks, knit 2 pairs of little socks for Rosebud, a huge pair of socks for The Ninja and started another pair for my niece. I’ve also knit a shawl for T’s aunt and more than half of my zip-front Remix Vest. Not too shabby really. Maybe I should cut myself some slack?

Here’s the latest pair of socks:

Comments: He got to pick the yarn but they weren’t quite ready for his birthday. These are the largest socks on my Recipient List and I only had a few metres left when I was done. Cutting it very close!

And here’s what the Remix Vest looks like at the moment:


The sun is out today and it’s quite warm at 10C so I’m hoping we can get a chance to go for a walk later when T-Man gets home from work. That should perk me up some. Meanwhile I’d best get at the 2-day heap of dishes in the sink, huh?

It sounds like you've been doing plenty! Spring seems to be coming faster this year, and I know every spring I find myself surprisingly tired. And every year I have to remind myself that this happens, and that it's probably "spring fever".

And great slipper maintainance, BTW!
