Yes, bad timing. But when is it a good time to be sick?
Instead of depressing you, I'll try to cheer you by showing you some of the things I've made recently - while I myself was sick, or in between funerals, or on snowy or sleety days. I'm sure things will get happier around here pretty soon.
Here's a yellow baby blanket I knitted for my friend Jackie, who recently had a baby girl.
Here's a close-up so you can see the details.
Here's a pumpkin pie, and a couple of star-spangled red and blue pies for Election Night.
Right now, I am working on a blanket for a little boy. Finally someone had a boy! I don't want to give too much away, so I won't post a picture until the recipient has already received it. But I will tell you it's a new pattern, and a little challenging for me. And it's blue. I can't resist blue for boys.
Speaking of boys, back to caring for my own. If I get him some antibiotics before tomorrow, maybe he can get back to normal in time to show off his beautiful (and brand new) tenor voice.
P.S. If you are a knitter and use the online knitting forum Ravelry, you can get details about the patterns and yarns I used by looking at my profile. I go by the handle "sparkythedog." I also entertain requests for recipes and tutorials - just drop me a line or a comment if you want more information.
