Attacked by Pollen

Spring is a happy time.  The weather is warmer, days are longer, and the flowers and bushes are blooming.  And in all the excitement of welcoming spring (and warmer weather), I forgot about my nemesis – pollen. This year's attack has been vicious and I’m just now feeling like I’m back among the living. 

You’d think that with three sick days off from work, several doctor appointments, and not much on my social calendar, I’d be happily knitting away.  But I just haven’t felt like knitting very much.   I did manage to finish one half done baby hat, one half done mitered square and I knit up another baby kimono.   But…..I have been reading.  A lot.  I’ve read seven or eight books and am currently reading another.  

I’ve felt better in the last couple of weeks and I’m happy to report that as of today, I've completed 23 squares for my mitered square blanket.  I’m a little worried though, that the colors won’t come together very well, that I should have planned better, and that one will need sunglasses just to look at it.  But despite these worries, I just keep pressing on and knitting squares.  Knitting those things is like eating Lays Potato Chips.  You can’t knit just one!

Off to knit another square!
