….By the common cold!
I am finally feeling human. For the last week and a half I have been laid low by the smallest of things. The common cold! I could not knit; I could not read; and I really didn’t watch much TV. My energy level was zero. I went to work and left early – I was a true “Sad Sack”.
This morning I am feeling so much better. There is a big pot of spaghetti sauce simmering on the stove (with a half of a bottle of Chianti in the pot the other half of the bottle is for dinner tonight!) and a cup of Earl Grey beside me. I actually picked up my needles and started to knit something last night.
I am playing with some summer yarns, a cotton boucle wrapped with nylon ribbon call Baruffa by Adriafil and some Little Flowers by Crystal Palace Yarns. I am creating a light and fun little evening shawl. Everything is now copacetic in my world. Except that I am behind in all my knitting. Sigh…..
Last saturday would have been perfect for some Nuno felting, warm and sunny; it would have been fun to play with soapy water and bubble wrap! Hopefully this Saturday will be as nice – or at least close.
The Olympics are coming! In London, starting in July the Summer Olympics are starting – this means that the Ravelympics will be starting as well! I am a member of Team Canada and all my knitting is in training for the Events – still to be announced!
If you have never participated in anything like this – take a look – it is a fun experience. Every two years we re-connect with friends from the last Ravelympics and will make new ones with these events.
If you like playing on-line and meeting more like-minded knitters come on and check out the possibilities!
