Loch Ness Knitting
I was really sick last fall, and really didn't have a lot of hope for my future.  This wasn't a mood problem, it was existential.  I had a deadly neurological injury and not too many prospects for recover.  As you know, I had dislocated my neck in an unusua...

OMG, Like, She Says She's Got Something Else?
It's a long list.  I'm sure, in fact I know, some people roll their eyes when I say on facebook that I have another diagnosis. Something else is wrong.  Yes, something else.  How can another thing no one has heard of be wrong?  Well, to start with, the sort...

Making My Decisions for Me
The last year of my life has been really challenging.  (Hint: this isn't really going to be a knitting post.)  I've been thinking a lot over the last few month of what to say publicly about what's happened to me.  People don't understand, and part of that i...

Going to the Fair
It's the time of the year for the local agricultural fair.  There's a fairly competitive and large knitting section at this fair, and last year I entered for the first time.  I entered an Aran sweater I'd knitted for Saul and my Loch Lomond sweater, and did...

34 Years
It took 34 years of active searching to figure it out; to figure out what was wrong with me.  Really.  34 years of going to the doctor.  Of going to many, many doctors and telling them that there was something very wrong.  34 years of dislocating joints, fa...
