I'm hot

Literally... After a very restless night, I woke up this morning feeling very hot. I took my temperature and the thermometer said 102F. Humph! So I have the flu on top of my cough. I am snuggled in bed with 2 cats, the laptop, and several knitting projects.

I'm making good progress on the Everlasting Bag Stopper. I'll need to stop soon and measure it against a regular plastic shopping bag.

This is a sample for Black Sheep Yarns. The Smooshy is lovely but the pattern is kicking my butt. The pattern is a 4 row repeat but I haven't been able to memorize it because the lace doesn't repeat within the row. Blech.

The sooper seekrit project is also getting a lot of knitting time. It's looking great so far.

My friends (I made them kitty wash cloths and the R2D2 beanie) gave me a gc to a yarn store, Knitopia for Christmas. I drove out there yesterday and redeemed it!

From L to R: 2 skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine, Berroco Peruvia Colors, and a skein of West Coast Colour Aurora Borealis. The Aurora Borealis is a spectacular mix of alpaca and mohair. It's black with a small strand of colour that changes from blue to purple. It's stunning in person but so hard to photograph.

I think I'm ready for my afternoon snooze. Nighty night.

We missed you at WNK. Hope you are feeling better soon. You will have to bring your new yarn, so that we might all have a cuddle.
