I'm alive!

First, thank you all so much for your well-wishes! I appreciate them more than you know.

Secondly, it was just a cold, but boy I can be dramatic when I want to! It was a pretty nasty sucker (still lingering around here - don't have much of a voice and still can't breathe through my nose), but I've conquered it.

The Man knew things were bad when I came home Monday night and didn't even have the energy to check my bloglines. Then I went in search of mindless stockinette, and he nearly had a heart attack when I pulled out the cat bed. Soon, though, it became evident that I didn't even have the energy for that. I tried to read, and couldn't concentrate. So I decided to take a nap. It's bad things around here when momma is sleeping in the afternoon. She doesn't nap (unlike the other members of her household).

The Girl was concerned that I was asleep - that's how rare it is! But I sucked it up and forged ahead - I was being observed on Wednesday, so I had to go to school.

Jen got me out of the house for a mini SnB session Tuesday night (I did make The Man drive me). I got to pet her new yarn from Knitpicks - soooooo soft. She also got some of the self-striping to make socks for her honey. I'm excited to see it knit up - I haven't used any self-striping yarns yet.

There has been knitting. I will take some pictures in the daylight tomorrow for you - I promise!

Real quick, before I have to go hack up a lung again, I started the "Bold Banded Mittens" from Adorable Knits for Tots and I swear there is a mistake in the pattern. I have searched online for errata and found none (but did find several people looking for some!). Any advice? I could try to wing it on my own, but I'm worried that if I solve this problem it will be messed up again later. I'm debating calling the publisher. They don't have any info on their website though, so I'm not sure how helpful they'd be.

Pictures tomorrow!

  1. Glad to know you're almost better! Wish I could help you on that errata issue, but I haven't a clue. Keep taking care of yourself!
