and today I begin swatching for my next big project

Never fear, D. I was sitting at dinner tonight and I felt the knitting come back. Yesterday amid the madness I went out and bought a couple knitting books, despite being on somewhat of a yarn diet. Mimazu tempted me with the work of Mlles. Mason and Dixon, but I didn't find that one and walked home with "Knitting Nature" and the latest Yarn Harlot offering. After just twenty-four hours of paging through those, I started getting ideas again. Tank top ideas and more shawl ideas and baby blanket ideas. (Notice that I never have any dishcloth ideas; these are pretty high-investment experiments. I seem to be a risk-tolerant knitter, as evidenced by the sweater graveyard in my closet.) And possibly I will begin an even bigger project. Time will tell.

I've figured out that I post MUCH faster without putting in HTML or pictures. This one fact may be responsible for my beginning and end as a knitblogger.

Your post on the questions you've been getting re: C's surgery hit home -- Lil' E was born by cesarean and so I got some similar queries. I died laughing at the cell-phone tale! I can't wait to get that book myself (thanks again, Dana!). And finally, something relevant to this actual post: I hope I speak for all of us who know and love you when I say no photos is fine! I'm eager to hear about your brainstorming, when you have time to describe it.

Why, thank you! I'm sure my book would be happy to make the rounds in a few weeks. I still want the MDK book for old times sake, but this is keeping me busy at the moment. So many good choices!
