Mad, bad or awful?

It's been brought to my attention by a very dear friend that I have not been blogging much (or at all) recently, and she wanted to know if things were 'mad, bad or awful', which I think is a very fine phrase. And it's true. I've been exceedingly lax. I now have so much stuff to blog about that it's almost overwhelming and I don't know where to start, which is only making it worse. How about a quick summary?
  • I have very belated public thanks to give to both my Rowanette exchange pal and my Secret Pal (bad. Not the thanks, or the gifts. Just the belatedness.)
  • I've decided that I don't like Minnie, which was finished for WoolFest. I'm contemplating surgery (mad, or possibly awful).
  • I've finished spinning the second lot of my Day's End roving (good)
  • ...and started on some superwash merino which is very different on the hands... (mad)
  • I've ordered a new spinning wheel! (great!)
  • I'm going to Canada in a few days (mad)
  • I'm still not back at work, at all. I went in for a very brief visit last week, and some people hadn't even noticed I'd gone. (hmmm...)
  • I've knit a swatch for my Ginko Leaf Tunic, and it's too small. (bad)
  • I fell over spectacularly earlier this week, and did a real number on my right knee. In a few weeks, it will match my left. (awful)
  • J and I have bought a new car; he's traded in his Civic and we now have an estate that we could camp out in (mad!)
  • The new Rowan magazine is out! (a little of all three...)
Regular blogging will, I hope, recommence soon.

Good to see you back. What will you do with Minnie?? Is Scarlet still making hers? And will we see you in TO? Too many questions...

Good to hear from you. What are you doing in Canada? And How long are staying there?
Have a great weekend!

Hi - are you going to be around on the Saturday or Sunday of the last w/end in September? I'll be in Cambridge that weekend.

I am interested to see you say you don't like Minnie - I made one at the same time as you, mine took absolutely AGES cos I was doing lots of other stuff but also lost interest in it a bit. I am kind of disappointed, it is just ODD.
Any chance you could post a pic of yourself wearing it, I don't know if it is just mine, it was such a lot of work but it doesn't somehow work as a piece of clothing and also mine is too short although I knitted it the correct length.
love Sarah
