The morning sickness report:
Mild with possible threat of flare-up during important, all-staff meeting with super-head honcho (the knitter).
I'm feeling fine this morning -- actually, more than fine -- but the sentence above states my biggest fear. Imagine sitting in a 50+ person staff meeting then having to run out to puke. I'm feeling just slightly queasy right now but I'm planning to take some ginger lemon tea into the room with me and hope that the mild doesn't turn into super queasy. (Edited to add: So far the queasiness has been mostly held at bay today.)
Knit Club was fun yesterday, although I had to leave about a half hour early because of the aforementioned meeting. I gave Kelly my unfinished baby aran. The last time I worked on it was in February of 2005(!) and since I'd lost touch with the woman I was making it for, I felt awkward continuing on it. I mentioned it last week and Kelly expressed an interest in taking it off my hands. I eagerly jumped at the chance of getting rid of a UFO AND not having it go to waste so I brought it in for her last night. She's going to finish it and gift it to one of her relatives in Ireland who's expecting.
Although it was short, I totally enjoyed hanging out with Kelly, Michelle and Courtney and just gossiping and bullshitting. It's the one outwardly social thing that I do and I'm hoping I'll be able to continue meeting for knit club next year after the sea monkeys are born (knock on wood!).
When I left, I hailed a cab to go home and got one of those cabbies. He was smiling and happy to get the fare until I mentioned that I was going to Brooklyn. Then he started cursing in some foreign language started and took off like the hounds off hell were after him. I swear, I have never gotten home from Knit Club so quickly before. I kept wanting to tell the guy to slow down, that he had a pregnant and VERY NAUSEOUS woman in the back seat but I just kept my mouth shut and hung on for the ride.
My insides were seriously sloshed when I got home so I decided to turn in as soon as possible. I checked my email before turning in, though, and found that the wonderful people over at Vogue Knitting had emailed me the updated charts to the Lace and Cable Capelet. The link had been posted earlier in the day yesterday but the actual PDF had not been uploaded to the site. I wrote them to let them know of the mistake -- and in hopes that they would fix it so that I could get the charts and start working on it.
I'm glad I waited. There are lots of revisions to the written part of the pattern and I haven't even begun to compare the old and new charts. So this project is on hold for a teeny bit longer until I can figure the charts out.
But in the meantime I'll continue on my other projects and tick off the time until I can get to do some baby knitting.
Go sea monkeys, go!
