Hi all - it appears my brain disorder created confusion when knitting what should have been a very simple lap throw. It's not bad, and I'm sure the lady I made it for will enjoy it's warmth. It's a simple stockinette stitch, but when finished drop every 5th stitch (leaving 4 stockinette stitches). Then I picked up the stitches on the outside and did a modified (no bobble) Jared Flood Juneberry Triangle shawl border. Somehow I ended up having one end perfect and the other end with fewer repeats of the border. So it ends up looking a bit like a tombstone shape when blocked, but sort of curls after blocking. So, I'm thinking she'll think it's a perfect cocoon shape for tucking around her feet. Certainly not what was intended - oh well. The woman I made it for had a stroke a year ago and is fairly functional but can't communicate well. So she watches a lot of TV and needs something to keep her warm as the weather gets cooler.
As for the brain disorder - I have Zombie Zone periods where I will sleep for 2-6 days straight, only waking when someone drags me out of bed to eat, drink, go to the bathroom. I am still being tested to see what's up (nothing abnormal showed up on the MRI) but I met with the neurologist yesterday who wants me to be hospitalized for 24 hours when I go into my Zombie Zone to see what they see going on. So my wife will have to figure out some way to drag me to the car and load me to take me to the hospital.
