Suspended Squares - Block 2 Done

This has not been a terribly productive week for me.  You know the saying "sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the bear gets you" well this was one of those weeks where it definitely felt like the bear was getting me.  I got a migraine with visual aura on Tuesday, during my morning telecon.  Let me tell you, it is hard to focus when you are seeing an arc of scintillating diamonds in your right visual field.  The visual aura only lasts about 20 or 30 minutes, and I always take an Excedrin Migraine as soon as I  notice it, but I still get the headache and nausea and the only thing I can do is go home and take a nap.  Which is exactly what I did.  Fortunately I don't get those kind of migraines very often.  I think I've only had 4 now in the last couple of years.  Unfortunately, they really wipe me out.

But, I did manage to work on a few projects.  I knit a few rows on my Gedifra sweater, and a few more rows on my Rose Bud shawl.  I am on the last skein of leftovers on that one.  I ordered some green for the border, but it hasn't arrived yet.  And I finished the second Suspended Squares crochet block.  I really enjoyed this pattern.  It was a bit different from the others that I have done.  I have gained a lot of confidence in my crochet skills, which was the whole point of joining this club to begin with.  I also finally received the August Crochet Block, although they had to send me a replacement shipment as my original shipment never arrived.  I have one more Tinsel Toes block in my stash and then I will start on another fiber.  I will probably do the Pashmi blocks next because I have already made up one set of those.
