I'm Back

Sorry that I have been missing in action lately. No excuses really except that I am just so knackered all of the time.I had my blood tested which shows that I am anaemic and am now on ferrous sulphate tablets but I have also been getting bad headaches when I wake up. These are similar to a bad hangover and are a symptom that my blood is not oxygenated enough. As I have mentioned before I sleep with a CPAP machine as I have sleep apnoea. Yesterday I went to have the machine checked and last night I had a mini sleep study strapped to a meter that measured my SATS levels and heart rate. I have to take this mini machine back on Monday for them to analyse the results, It could be something simple like turning up the pressures on my machine.

I have managed to keep crocheting on my black version of the Pink Duster coat, despite falling asleep over it most evenings, and am well on my way with it now. I hope to have it finished so that I can wear it, if I wish, to the official launch of the Naked Knitting Calendar this Tuesday. It is being held at the Blundell Arms on Chorley Old Road Bolton from 7pm so if any of you are close by then please drop in and say Hi to us. Ambermoggie and Mr Mog are hoping to come to the launch and it will be lovely to see both of them again.

We are hoping that the local press will grace us with their presence for some more publicity. The Calendar was publicly launched at I Knit in London but as most of the members could not get there we decided to hold a local launch organised by Deb and Jen so that more people could have a chance to attend and show support. The landlord of the pub is being very supportive about this launch which helps immensely. I hope to take many photos to post on here next Wednesday. Thanks and well done Jen and Deb for all of your hard work in organising this launch and the sterling work that you are putting in addressing and posting off the calendars.

I have posted photos from the Natural Crochet Book by Tina Barrett today to fill up the spaces where I have not much to write about.I bought my copy from last week.

How I'd love to be at the launch -- sounds like it will be a lot of fun.

I'm sorry you're not feeling well. I hope the iron supplements help soon. It's so hard not having the energy to do those things that you enjoy. Good luck with the tests for your sleep apnea. Be sure and keep us posted.

P.S. Are you going to be taking all of those lovely things in the pattern book? Which one will you start on first?
