Well, the head cold is slowly going away. Emphasis on slow. I’m feeling better, kinda. Head is a little bit less stuffy. I feel better in the morning, but run out of steam about mid-afternoon. It’s been a few years since a bug has laid me this low, though, so I guess I was due. Sigh.
In good news, however, I am now feeling smart enough to purl. Or work on a sock. I sketched out a design last fall, using some yummy yarn from MDSW (Miss Babs Northumbria Fingering – BFL), but had to set it aside to concentrate on the Christmas knitting. I tried to work on last week, but just wasn’t up to it. I love the pattern and the yarn… not entirely sure they’re placing nicely together, but it is an intriguing combination.
I am still plugging away on the linen stitch scarf. The colors are pooling every so slightly in random areas, and I love it. So even though the knitting of it isn’t that challenging, the colors are keeping me going. I’m about halfway through the second skein, so I’m about halfway through the scarf. I still have House episodes on the DVR, so I should keep making progress. And there’s some football on this weekend, which always provides a good excuse to sit on the sofa and knit…
