My Grandmother's Knitting

As far as I know, neither of my Grandmothers knitted. I am referencing a book. This was book 25 of the year. It is a book of short stories about famous knitwear designers and thier families. There are a few patterns at the end of the book but it is mostly for reading. I enjoyed the stories.

I am up early waiting to head out on our adventure. Louann is leaving her house at 9 AM. She lives about an hour away. "My bags are packed...I'm ready to go..." I'm not leaving on a jet plane, but "in a Chevy van, and that's all right with me." oh no! The silliness has already started.

I am a bit sleep deprived. Yesterday I had to take my emergency prednisone dose. I have been tapering my prednisone by 1 mg every 2 weeks. On Wednesday I dropped to 22 mg per day. I had been feeling itchy pretty often, and yesterday I got the burning rash all over my face and neck. I'm not sure ketotifen is going to be the miracle for me that it has been for so many others. I have been told that it takes 3 months for some people, and I give all drugs a 3 month trial. I ordered 2 more months worth yesterday at an out of pocket cost to me of $135. If it isn't working better by then I will stop.
