So what do you do, when....

You can't leave the house because of medication/health issues, but you can still knit? And what do you do, if you need to go to a yarn shop in order to get help with finishing swap-knitting (I'm covering new territory with this stuff) ?

You start working on something else. Well, if you're me, anyway ^_~. I can't tell you what I made for Treanna. It's not likely she's ever going to see this blog, but you never know ^_~.
I managed to finish what I made her, however. It took me a lot longer then it normally would have (groggy minds and painful limbs can only do so much at any given time). But it was relatively mindless knitting, which was helpful to me.

I started knitting a clapotis for myself. Out of acrylic yarn, but oh, do I ever love the colors!!!! Purple and burnt orange and brown and a few shades in between. Not something I'd normally have picked to go together, but boy is it working out wonderfully. Haven't gotten very far yet though. As proof of the whole knitting while on medication, I've had to frog the darned thing twice already -_-. I can't show pictures at the moment, as the batteries for my camera have died out. I found this out when I attempted to take pictures to show off lol. Hopefully once I've got batteries again, I can show off what I've been working on. For myself, as well as for my swap partners.
I still feel really bad about being so delayed with the swapping. But there isn't much I can do about it at this point. I keep trying to make it to the shop, hopefully I can get there really soon (this week, maybe? Please, God?).

I was going to say something else, but I forget what it was now... go figure. Anyway, at least you know I'm still alive and kicking.
