Interlude with Frogging and Painkillers

Yesterday something reached out and dropped a lot of fatigue and a large amount of headache on me.

I've been knitting on a nearly-mindless garter stitch baby sweater and almost had it done last night. I sewed up one seam, discovered a bad spot, tried to take it out and clipped part of the garment instead of the seam. Frogging happened. True ripping happened. Swearing, too.

I woke up several times last night with blinding headaches, though they seem a bit smaller in daylight. But I have to do laundry today: my mother may be lying in bed in hospital gowns at the nursing home if I don't send clean clothes.

This may be all for a day or two. Just knit and talk among yourselves.
