I am down with the flu again(second time in 3 weeks ,With tummy bug in between,never having Flu shot again.....) so I don't need to say how I am feeling at moment!!!!
However I have done a bit of knitting,which has surprised me as most of the time when I am sick, I die and last thing I want to do is anything at all(family doesn't quite starve but they are learning to fend for themselves LOL)
Huge surprise( for me anyway) I am up to the heel of a pair of opal (blue magic that I won on Ebay for $6) and that is amazing as it would usually take a week! I did mess up and didn't read instructions so I knit about ten rows past the decrease spot so instead of every 5 rows decrease,I did 4 rows but I think I got away with it!
These are destined as a gift for someone at work who according to her daughter loves blues so these should be perfect!!!!!
Also I am nearly up to the armhole of the Country Silk vest(maybe another 3 inches but I am getting excited and it makes me knit faster when I think I am getting closer),its gorgeous to knit and I love the way the silk slubs weave around the needle.Can't wait to start the cardigan which is the same as Beatlewears lovely creation but I think I may put a little extra length ( everyone tells me that its hard to believe that carried 5 big boys but I KNOW I have a little roll that peeps over my troosers so I disguise!)
Late night shopping on Thursday as all the younger boys need shoes(shriek,looking at $60 min for 7 and9 yrs) and I need to get some extras goodies for my Secret Pal.I checked the Blog yesterday and a few people are adding significantly to the skein parcel, so I am thinking hard of what can I find to add to mine! I have to post shortly so stitch markers are out (haven't time scratch let alone get creative!) sort of thinking some fabric,ribbons thread even......
Anyway I am off to bed as I have to crawl out of bed for work tomorrow but if I still feel like death warmed up then I will only do a half day!!! I will leave this for contemplation( from the usual spot
Doesn't he look just it!!!!!
