especially when I have a knitting deadline ♥
POOR ME – Too sick to work, I had to sit in bed ALL day with a cup of tea, honey and lemon to sooth my throat. But since I was just “sitting there” I figured I might as well knit.
Isn’t there a saying that goes, “knit a cold, starve a fever”?
While I wasn’t up to my usual knitting speed, it’s amazing how many teeny tiny sock rows can be knit in between coughing fits in an 8-hour day of illness…
BRING ON THE SICK DAYS – is this what they mean by LOVE SICK???
Because these socks are a surprise for Pete, I couldn’t measure his ankles (he’s a light sleeper), so I went with the very forgiving 2×2 rib pattern. They should stretch nicely to fit, I HOPE. Otherwise I’ll be running after my three boys with a measuring tape to see whose feet they’ll fit!
We’re down to 28 days until Valentine’s Day – if this cold hangs on, I just MAY be able to finish 2 socks for Pete. Of course if I recover quickly I may have to use Laurie’s idea and give him 1 sock for Valentine’s Day and the second for his birthday!
That’s it for now from this LOVE SICK knitter…
