where we celebrate the headache

today i went to see the internist who also took my headache seriously. so seriously, in fact, that she ordered a same-day CT scan. six stress-filled hours, three work projects, and the first half of a sock foot knit, frogged and rebuilt, later...

i am proud to report that although my mind may sometimes be dirty, my brain is clean!

so tonight i am celebrating that i have a headache because - although we haven't figured out how to get rid of it yet - headache is certainly a big step closer to healthy than brain tumor would be.

Harvest gourds
here i bring you Harvest Gourds... i'm calling it that because the colors are true to all those random squashes with which holiday tables are festooned. it is 4 oz BFL from the painted sheep in colorway Tiger Lily, final WPI=16. there is about 500 yards. it also is the first yarn i have spun on my new wheel (wheeeeeeee!) and my first experience with double drive. given those caveats, i am pretty happy.

Beautiful yarn, love the colors. Sorry about your headache.

Well, at least you know what it *isn't*, still that doesn't make having the headache any easier.

I'm hoping you start feeling better soon. Do you think your hectic schedule may be contributing?

Lovely yarn!

take care!

Lovely yarn! Go you!!

I hope the headache is resolved soon - now that we know it's not a tumor, I can wish for that. ;-)

Whew. There is a lot of comfort in those test results even though they don't help resolve the headaches. Even so, your yarn is smashing! Love the colors.

Your yarn is lovely--perfect squash colors!

Glad your test results were good, and hope you are feeling better by now...
