Not So Much Finishing Friday

It's this hot today,
and after three whole days completely off pain pills, I had a rather bad night and ended up back on full meds for the rest of the night.  That's always a bit hard to take, but on such a hot day it just sucks the life out of me.  And Theo. 


Last night I did get the remaining two sets of strips sewn together,
with a new color order on the smaller one, 
and the original order on the set made with 2-inch strips.  I'm really rather proud of myself for moving on to the next sets.  The way I usually do things is to finish the first set, set the second set aside "meaning to get around to it," and then spend the next year and a half moving it around rather than finishing it.  Of course, these still have to make it all the way to Ornament Stage, but I think them even making it to Long Uneven Strip Stage might be some serious personal growth on my part.  Or, as close as I ever get. 

In the meantime, I am keeping myself under close observation because in order to have something to knit that isn't wool, alpaca, or mohair, I was actually thinking that it wouldn't be at ALL a stupid idea to cast on a lace tablecloth using crochet thread and size 4 needles for a table that takes an 84" long cloth.  And I had hoped to get off pain pills entirely before my brain completely snapped.  Darn...........................
