My only advice for you this week: Don’t catch whatever I had. It’s still hanging on too, but just a small cough. I couldn’t knit! (Which, parenthetically, is the absolutely worst thing you can do to me)
I had been trying to finish some socks for mother’s day (which I wrongly thought was on the 20th.. WTF brain!). I was 2 knitting sessions away from finishing with 2 evenings to go and blamo! no more knitting. 😦 I finished them last night, but will blog after they have been properly photographed.
So what does a sickly person do who starts feeling itchy when she is just sitting?
Well, riding a waterfall of duckies came in a lose 2nd but…Crochet! (yes more crochet…)
It’s a bath puff! So exciting. 😉 But at 3 rounds and easily memorized I was able to make 2 without adding to my general distress.
I added another amigurumi sheep to my collection:
He has a very pronounced head tilt and I wasn’t counting quite correctly, but somehow he ended up very cute. 🙂
I also dragged an old ufo out from hibernation. The Moorish Mosaic afghan. I seamed up what I had and was pleasantly surprised.
Now that I’m feeling much better I’ve done some shuffling of my wips and started a few new things. Notably I have joined the mystery shawlette kal on Wendy knits blog. I’m looking forward to the first clue. 😀
