Well, I guess I am never getting well. I went to the doctor on Thursday and they loaded me up with antibiotics for my ears, lungs, and everything else, but here it is Monday and I am still not well. I can't hear out of my left ear at all and it is killing me, can barely hear out of my right, coughing my head off, etc. I missed church on Sunday--which anyone who knows me knows that I would have to REALLY be sick in order to not go. (Church is like MY time to relax and fill up MY buckets--kind of like knitting time except there are no interuptions).
I am well on my way to having my hooded sweater finished!!! If you look back to my UFO and WIP post you will see that I have done A LOT of knitting on it since last week. I have started the sleeves--I work both at the same time--so when they are done I will sew it up and get to wear it. I can't wait!!! It is going to be so nice and warm for all of this super cold weather we are having (it hasn't been above freezing for three weeks!!!). Plus, I haven't made anything for myself for awhile.This is my second sock for the January Sockamania project. I am all the way to the heel now. I knit on them while I watched a movie Saturday night. I anticipate having them finished this week if all goes the way I want it to. Then I can get HoneyBunny's socks finished, which are now more than half way done as well.
I even spent some time spinning!! I finally found some wool that matched this beautiful, natural burgandy, alpaca I bought myself for my birthday a few years ago. There wasn't enough to make anything by itself so when I found this wool that was the same color I bought just enough to make it a 50/50 blend. I hope I have enough to make a sweater, but if not I will turn it all into hats, socks, and gloves. I just love the color! Of course the picture doesn't really capture the "burgandy" spectrum that well, but you get the idea. I can't wait to get it all spun up!!
My knitting friend came over Saturday to buy some of my hand spun angora/wool yarn that she has been making socks out of and we got to visit a while. I love to talk about yarn and knitting almost as much as I like to knit and touch the yarn. She wants me to dye some worsted weight yarn for a contrast yarn in a baby jacket she is making for her first grand baby that is on the way. The jacket is adorable and she has picked some really great colors for it.
Well, I am off to go take some more medicine and knit. Hope you are doing well--stay away from anyone with this bug!!!
