I actually took a day off sick from work on Friday, which is a real rarity for me, spent the morning sleeping, the afternoon vegetating on the sofa under a blanket, and when I went to collect the children from the after-school childminder she answered the door with “oh my goodness, you look awful!”. Thanks!
There have been some nasty cold viruses going around this winter and I can attest to the unpleasantness of this one. If I don’t even have the energy to knit, I must be feeling bad.
By Saturday afternoon I decided I could manage some work on my current shawl design, but then switched back to my garter stitch scrap blanket later after I’d taken some cough medicine which causes drowsiness. I’m susceptible to drowsy-making medicines at the best of times. Never mind “do not drive or operate machinery”, I was treating it as “may cause drowsiness; if affected, do not attempt knit design”!
It’s now Sunday and I’m feeling much better today. Still coughing and sneezing but infinitely better in myself and more than up to some stocking stitch. Coincidentally this yarn happens to change colour just at the eyelet row! Couldn’t have planned that if I’d tried!
