Just a quick post today. Been working hard on the medicine wards and I'm so tired. But the weather is amazing and everything is blooming. Horrible for my allergies and asthma but so pretty. The other day I was complaining about how bad my allergies are and how I need to go to the doctor to get a new Allegra prescription. How am I going to find time off to go to the doctor? Then I had one of those "Wait a second... I'm a doctor" moments and called it in for myself. I love being able to do that!
So in between blowing my nose and coughing I've been getting some knitting done. Working on my Hogwarts sock swap pal's socks and loving them. I've also been shopping for little goodies to put in the package. The candy shop nearby had a whole shelf of Harry Potter candy, so my pal will be getting a nice assortment including cockroach clusters. Then I did some shopping for my Knitflix summer swap partner's yarn online today. Can't say any more yet because it isn't a secret swap. I of course ordered a skein of sock yarn for myself too. It's a brand I haven't tried before and I'm excited to see it. I've also been playing with the goodies my secret pal sent me and learning how to cable. Sorry I've been so slack and haven't posted a picture of my wonderful package. No exuse, just my inherent slackness. Promise to be better in the future and post a picture when I get my act together.
Some big plans for the next few weeks. First the Yarn Harlot is coming to town. She'll be speaking at the Calvin (one of my favorite places in town and where I saw my one and only someone Jamie Cullum live) and signing books at Webs. Anyone in the area going to see her? I don't have any knitting friends in town since I haven't been able to find a group, so I'll be heading over there on my own. Would love to meet up with anyone coming into town. Then in June I get some time off and I'm planning a trip to Maine. Some of my fellow interns are from Maine and keep talking about how wonderful it is, so I'm going to check it out. I figure I should travel New England while I'm up here. So I'm going to spend a few days in Bar Harbor and do a little New England yarn crawl. I'll be scouring the internet to find yarn shops between here and there so I can check them out on the way. Any suggestions?
