Good morning, everyone. It really is a 'cold and frosty morning' at the moment, very shiversome indeed with more than just a touch of frost. I'm glad I'm going nowhere.
The sad news is that the virus I was fighting last week (and thought I had defeated) has come back with a vengeance and I'm feeling proper yuck, as a friend says. To be honest, I think it's just a cold - bunged up, sore throat, shivers and aches and a headache - but enough for me to cancel tuition yesterday and today and I'm staying in and feeling sorry for myself. I used to rather resent the feeling of HAVING to go to work when feeling a bit rough, even if it was probably the best thing to keep going and now I don't have to any more, I can go on my own inclinations in the matter and at the moment it's saying stay in, stay warm, don't push it.
Poor old me, eh (imagine a mildly sarcastic/cynical tone of voice here, please). At least it gives me a chance to get on with my knitting. I was going great guns, finishing a cowl neck so quite a lot of knitting, cast off and was about to start sewing up when I realised I'd knitted the neck the wrong way around, darn it. So I have to undo it and try again, being more careful this time.
Once that's finished, I have plenty more to do. On the list is a jumper, a cardigan and a pair of socks. The only one I can start today is the jumper as Val has the cardigan pattern and the sock pattern but I have the yarn all ready.
I really don't need any more jumpers or cardigans but there's a lot of pleasure in the making.
To that's today. What are your plans? xx
