Messing with the program

Argh, I'm beat. Being back in the hospital after two weeks of blissful lassitude isn't easy. I've been on my feet nonstop the last two days, and I hate the fact that I have no time to teach. And I only have a little time to think. It feels like I'm playing catch-up most of the day, and it takes so much longer to get done, because I feel like there's something that I missed.

In happier news, I'm done with my cable knit bags. I modified a pattern I found online and used Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky, which is soft and yummy. Mike's parents came up on Sunday and we just hung out in the apartment, talking and eating, and I seamed and lined my bags in between bites of chocolate croissant. I was surrounded by other finished items, including a couple of scarves for Mike's grandmothers.

Perspective makes the brown one look odd, but they're both the same size. My stitching on the lining is a little neater on this one (I hid the stitches). I feel somewhat more caught up. Liesel is still languishing and I need to summon up the strength to finish up Tempting. I finally disentangled and wound my last skein of Schaefer Anne and am contemplating casting on for the Wave and Shell Shawl.
