Migraine Morning

I woke this morning with a pretty nifty migraine. Which really pisses me off. I feel like I've been robbed of a day of vacation.

Ooh. Did I mention I was on vacation? Yup. I have been since noon last Friday. And I don't go back to work until Wednesday, the 2nd of January. (Which happens to be my 44th birthday!)

Anyway. After administering copious amounts of caffeine -- Excedrin Migraine washed down with strong coffee -- I am at least somewhat relieved of the pain. Not completely relieved, but enough that I can stumble around the house instead of just rocking back and forth on the bed praying for death.

I had been planning to bake some rugellach today, but the idea of doing anything around food makes my head pound more. So that will have to wait for another day.

I did get item of my "To Do" list done. I did this:

My Luna Moth shawl. I didn't realize until I was pinning it out that I hadn't worked in the ends...a serious but not insurmountable mistake. I hate blocking, and I am really quite bad at it. But it is a necessary evil when you knit lace. Overall I'm pleased.

It's beautiful. I especially like the close up where you can see all the k2tog being darker that the knits. Very fascinating.

I don't darn in the ends on lace until after it's blocked. It's a bit easier on my eyes, and I don't have to worry about the darned-in ends restricting the movement of the fabric as it's stretched.

Beautiful job Aidan. Isn't it magic to watch a lump-o-lace transform into an incredible work of art with a little water and 5 million pins?
