A Dark Room

I am glad that so many of you enjoyed all the Easter cuteness that I made. There hasn't been much crafting since last week. I have been suffering from migraines. My migraines are the kind that makes me loose my eyesight on one side. Then when I regain my eyesight, the pounding headache and nausea sets in. All I can do is lock myself up in a pitch black room with a ice pack on my head. Now, I am feeling better and can get out of bed, but my head is very sore and tender. I feel like someone has whacked me in the head with a hammer.

I bought the Japanese Egg Molds from The Bento Store. I started collecting them last year when I was obsessed with making Bento lunches for DH. The Bento Store is great to buy from and ships fast. I noticed that someother Ebay sellers are now selling those egg molds from overseas, but beware of the prices. Some of them are way-over charging.

I will show you update photos on the projects that I have been working on.
The Ripple Blanket

Peekaboo Mittens for me.

Duet Socks in Army Girl colorway. It still needs a mate and then I will knit the after thought heels.

Granny Squares. Maybe for a granny square blanket?

Hope you are feeling better! That ripple blanket looks great! I wish I had that kind of patience to crochet a blanket.

I love the ripple blanket. I've been wanting to make one for a while now but I haven't quite mastered crocheting just yet.

Oh I'm so sorry about your migraines. I don't get the loss of vision, but I get the pounding headaches and light sensitivity too. I'm so glad you're feeling better!

You projects look wonderful! Even though I am making the same ripple blanket in the same colors, somehow yours looks better! I guess the grass is always greener...

I can relate to the migranes.. I also suffer from them on occasion.. Ugh!

Thanks for the link on the egg molds.. I'll check over there and see what they have.

Your WIPs look great.. I also have the Army Girl from Duet Sock Yarns.. It's a yummy color!

i love all your finished items - the blanket is just stunning, I love how Napoleon appears to have claimed it for his own :) The sock, mittens and squares look wonderful too!

I'm so sorry to hear about the bad migraine you've been having - migraines are just the worst, the pain is excruciating and there's not really much one can do against it ;( I really, really hope that you're feeling better by now!
Your work is so very beautiful and inspirational - most especially that gorgeous blanket!
