Still Knitting

I am still knitting. Every day. It's a nervous habit now. Just haven't felt worth a shit. In fact, I haven't felt this bad since last year.
And through it all, I haven't missed any work.
I am trying really hard. I didn't really have a lot of attendance problems anyway. Just when I was sick. Now....I can't be sick. I wont be! Dammit, I can't help it. This pain in my side is getting worse and worse. I don't know. I fear another surgery. It's horrible to even contemplate.

Damn Teeny Tiny Needles

I broke the bamboo part of my size 2 needles, trying to knit to heavy a yarn. Idiot. But, sanded them down and now look at them with the perplexed curiosity that says, what good are they for now?
I don't know. I'll think of something.
Made a cute little winter beret and now going to add a pair of little wrist warmers to go with- maybe the right size for a 5 year old..since I have no children around to try sizes I am absolutely guessing. But, it'll be cute, whatever it is. I'll knit the wrist warmers on dpns and hope I get the right diameter.

Heather's turtle turned out ultra cute. I knitted an octopus for a friend and it was equally cute but I forgot to take pics. Bummer.
