No, I've not fallen off the edge of the world

But I have been busy working on my radio feature, knitting, fighting email problems – if you’ve emailed me during April I probably haven’t recieved it, and occasionally – like today – been sick with the ongoing stomach thing.

When I put it all out there like that it reads, to me anyway, like a list of excuses. But there we are. So as a result KnitCast has been delayed to the point where part of the Toronto special is actually out of date. But it’s edited so it’s going to be posted. In the next thirty minutes in fact!

Knitting wise I’m on a sock journey again. I love socks, they’re so easy to knit and small and portable. Plus they confuse non-knitters when you begin them. All of mine are knit from the toe up so people tend to wonder if I’m knitting a very small baby hat (I take a size four shoe, so I guess they mean a REALLY small baby). At the moment I’m knitting purple, lime, red and pink striped socks. I forget the shade but it’s sock yarn by the German company Online. I’m well into the cuff of the first sock so hopefully they’ll be finished soon. I’m trying to resist the pull of the other sock yarns in the sitting room. And come to mention it resist the pull of the various other things I could be kntting.

No, at this time socks are about all I can handle. I have to go to the doctor soon to see about my stomach. Still no news on when I’ll get an appointment at the hospital for it to be checked out. So for the time being I guess I’ll just continue to have days when I just can’t function normally.

    I have been worried about you! I’m glad you are alive, but you really must have this stomach thing looked at (I know you know that). I sent you a parcel over a month ago. I hope you received it! Take care.

  2. Teresa says:

    Marie…I’m so sorry to hear that you still aren’t feeling well.
    I’ll be sending thoughts of health and healing across the way.

    Fab to see you post. Not so good about the ongoing health issues. It sort of takes over,I find.
    Take care of yourself.

  4. Dawn says:

    So glad to know you are sort of alright. I hope the stomach thing isn’t to bad. I live with IBS and I know what it is like to not be able to function sometimes. I’ll be thinking of ya! I know many of us have been worried about you and glad to know that you haven’t given up the podcasting!

    Knit and blog on.

    Marie, I hope you figure out what is going on. It is tough to have a “something” without a name to put on it. Been there, done that. I have been meaning to get over to your blog ever since you called me in the U.S. a couple of weeks ago about knitting in school. It was seriously cool to talk to you but very few people understood me when I bragged about it. Podcasts are still not totally mainstream. Oh well.
    Feel better!

    Marie, I send you the best of health wishes! I really hope you are better soon. Just know that whatever is wrong with your stomach right now, you can handle it!!! And come out smiling!
    A faithful listener of wonderful show, Emmie
