Then it happened.
This week has been the stomach flu, times three.
It started Sunday night with my daughter and husband...actually, it would be more appropriate to say early Monday morning. In my experience, children never throw up before midnight or after seven in the morning.
I was feeling it Tuesday morning. By Tuesday night, I was immobile. Literally.
So, to all of you that read my blog, send me some of your get well vibes...or throw some garlic at me or something. [wink]
Let's get to the good stuff...knitting!
I finished one of the sleeves on my Kauni Cardigan.
and started the other.
I'm really excited about being so close to the finish line with this cardigan. I'm hoping that if I stay well [knock on my head] I'll manage to have this completed by the end of next week.
I also started on a new pair of socks using some Original[DK weight] Duet sock yarn from my stash...unfortunately, it was during my "regular" flu delirium a week and a half ago.
Well, I'm knitting these toe up, magic cast on increased to 52 stitches and short row heel. I wanted to make the most of the yarn, but alas, being that this is only my second ever pair of toe ups I've ever knit, I forgot to weigh and divide the yarn.
I'm kinda stumped as to what to do now because the yarn comes with a mini hank of contrasting colour for the heel and toe, so weighing it now that it has been knit seems kinda pointless.
Also, a big thank you to Tammy for choosing me as one of the blogs that make her day! Honestly, I think she made my day more than I probably make hers. [insert crazy hyena laugh here]
I'm supposed to pass this on to ten people, but I'm going to do this instead. Anyone that reads this here pitiful blog of mine and can muster through all the sickness I write about, you make my day! So, grab the button.
On top of that, I want to make special mention to, in no particular order;
Shannon from Dreams of Yarn because of her fearlessness in all things fibre. You've come a long way girl and I'm enjoying your journey.
Wannietta from What's Wannietta Knitting Today? for her tenacity in knitting. You go, girl! I voted red. [wink]
Marlene from Wovenflame for her endless creativity in all things fibre related. She does it all. Seriously.
Minnie from Muses of a Dragon Mad Knitter for her endless energy [of which I have none] and her devotion to her family.
Monika from Smoking Hot Needles because I have a serious crush on her dogs Sam and Biko and she has fantastic knitting too!
Stephanie from Yarn Harlot because she takes the time.
Mona from Knit Stricken! because I want to know where the heck you are!
Kimberly from Kimberly's Korner for being the sweetheart she is.
Kim from Curlie Girl because she has had to endure and overcome, yet is still gentle while gaining strength.
Samantha from Me, Myself and Milotis78 because she has three of the cutest kids and keeps it all together while knitting.
