Well, I figure if you can wash a man out of your hair, you can do the same with a weekend! I started getting sick Friday with ear issues and by Saturday I woke up with a full fledged case of vertigo. Not fun. See, my left eardrum has ruptured twice over the years and is weak in a spot. When I get fluid in my ear, I run the chance of it pushing on that spot and causing me to have problems with my equilibrium. Well, it hit hard this time! I had to crawl to the bathroom because I couldn't stand up. Luckily it started backing off by the afternoon and I made it to an urgent care clinic. I am now fully drugged up on a Z-pack, prednisone, and have gone so far as to take some phenergan I had leftover from a surgery about 5 years ago to help with the nausea. It's been a rough weekend. Even when I feel better I mess up by trying to go on the computer, or trying to crochet which both call for quick movement of the eyes. Yes, just moving the eyes back and forth or watching a tv program can be really bad. Driving the car proved a very stupid thing to try. I was almost crying by the time I got home from the clinic because I was so scared I was going to cause a wreck. I didn't realize how much you move your head when you're driving.
Even with all of this going on, I did manage to get a little bit done. I have been loving these crochet dishcloths I see online but I've never tried one. So I decided to try out several different patterns to see which one I liked best. I had a bunch of different colors of cotton yarn I bought a while back to make a bag, but I didn't like how it turned out so I pulled it all out. It was perfect for these dishcloths though. I have 3 completed and two in progress so far.
I love the circular one that has a swirl! I have more purple and taupe, plus bits of all that I can make a multi-color one from . I like these so much I may have to make up some for a giveaway so stay tuned!
