I've finally recovered more or less from Paddy's Day. What a day of boozing!!! I spent my Saturday detoxing from a week of extravagant eating and drinking; my allergies were horrendous and I felt nauseous. Luckily I recovered on Sunday and now I'm back at work (for better or worse). The bf was visiting for the week and I broke pretty much every Lenten resolution. I've decided that I'll add an extra week to Lent to make up for my badness.
I also got very little knitting done. I spent Paddy's Day working on my minimalist cardigan. I think that knitting throughout the 12-hour + drinking session kept me fairly sober. I never got very drunk and I'm happy to say that there were no drunken mistakes upon inspection the next day. :-)
I thought I'd get so much completed on my week off but except for a hat that ended up too small for my big hair, I did nothing really. I gifted the hat to the bf's friend, Melanie, as it fit her well.
