Year of the Dog

I'd like to wish my Chinese friends a happy new year.

As I'm waiting in the wings for the Knitting Olympics to start I thought I'd knit another argyl cardigan from Debbie Bliss' Special Knits book. With so many expectant mothers around you can never have too little baby knits. Im knitting it up in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino and its texture is so soft, and it looks alot nicer than my first one which was knit up in Rowan All Seasons Cotton.

No weight gain from the steroids yet, I'm still 2lb down. I've been taking baby aspirin and the first couple of days of taking it I had really bad indigestion. I put it down to a vegetable chili I had eaten. However, as I was making a cup of tea and hanging around in the kitchen waiting for the kettle to boil, I was reading the aspirin label on which it said dispersible aspirin, mix with water. *Gasp* I'd been swallowing them. *Checking pulse is not flying through the sky* No wonder the indigestion. MENTAL NOTE - READ ALL MEDICATION INSTRUCTIONS

LOL @ your asprins! You sound like me - act first, read instructions later! I'm envious of your baby cashmerino argyl cardi - I want to make one, too! I just have far too many other things to do, though. I'll have to keep an eye out for that book, though. ~Sharon

It's nice to see you doing another argyle sweater; your first one turned out so cute! I'm laughing, too, about your aspririn story. I've never heard of dispersible aspirin! Ack!
