Where have I been you ask? Go down the dark and twisty road...turn left at the skull and cross bones, take the bridge over the River of the Dead, peek over the sign that says Zombie Land and look for the old lady hacking up a lung. Yep, that's me. This cold is like the Energizer Bunny...just keeps going and going and going. I started back to work last week, but it was tough. I slept MOST of last weekend. Monday was tough, Tuesday was a pain, and today...well, I am still tired but functioning.
I have a few things to show. First, I finished my stepson's red and black blanket. I think it turned out nice and he was thrilled when I sent it as part of his Valentine's gift.
Then, with all the time at the hospital with Baby Sister, I started a new blanket. Nothing special, but I liked the colors. I was thinking of starting a knitting project, but it was much easier to haul around one crochet hook and one skein of yarn. LOL One less thing to lose.
Got home, spent the next week sleeping and then started a knitted scarf for my son. It is a simple knit and purl, but I love,love, love the Merino wool and it is turning out so pretty! I bought a new pair of bamboo needles. I really like the quiet of these needles and it just seems to work better with the wool. It sounds weird, but working with natural products makes me feel more grounded to the world. I know, weird. LOL
Update on Baby Sister...she is doing great!! Learning how to eat to fit the surgery and healing well. She feels that it was worth it. With the cold that I caught, I am still thinking about it. LOL This is about all I can handle tonight...I am off to shower and then fall into bed.
Be kind to one another.
