I’m so behind on my knitting. I had decided to knit a Fireside Patchwork Afghan for my parents as a holiday gift this year and figured that if I could knit 2 squares a month then I’d sitting pretty come the holiday season and wouldn’t be stressing out about trying to cram in a blanket’s worth of knitting in last minute. That was in January. Which means I should be working on blocks 6 and 7 this month. The total so far? 3. Guess I better get to work. (Yarn is Vanna’s Choice acrylic, mostly because a. it made for an affordable project and b. I doubt my parents want to hand wash and find a way to dry a giant blanket that is made of wool. I’m at least a considerate knitter, haha!)
I have been completely wiped out since Thursday, and only today have I really felt up for much of anything. I’m not sure if I ate some bad food or just caught a virus, but Thursday found me leaving work early and by early Friday morning I had a fever of 101.5. Today I’m finally feeling back to normal except that I have zero appetite, which is awesome for my waistline but really bad overall for everything else. I can’t even bring myself to try to make a loaf of homemade bread out of fear that that will taste awful, too. It’s been a long time since I’ve been this ill, and I’ll be happy if I don’t have to experience it again for a long while. Tomorrow it’s back to the ol’ work routine so I’m hoping that I can, at the very least, finally get something productive done instead of being a lump on the sofa or asleep in bed. And hopefully some catching up on everything else I’ve missed out on these last 3-4 days!
