More knitting time?

Everytime I start to get sick, I think, "No problem, just more knitting time!" Apparently, even though I have been sick many times in the last 5 or 6 years since I learned to knit, I have forgotten that being sick does not mean extra knitting time. Being sick means sleeping all day and all night and spending what little time I am awake blowing my nose and taking completely ineffective cold medicine.

All of this to say, I'm sick. :(

I really hate being sick. I'm not sure that many people actually enjoy it, I suppose, but I would just like to state for the record that it is not my idea of a good time. In addition to feeling like crap, I'm missing perfectly good days of work in lab--just when I finally, finally got an experiment to work right. And, on top of that, it finally got really cold in Chicago and I may have missed my only chance to go ice skating this winter.

Yes, I would like a little cheese with my whine. Pass the Brie.

In knitting news, I am still working on the mittens. These are the mittens with the flaps from Handknit Holidays and I just need to knit the flap for the second mitten. Let's not discuss the fact that it'll probably be spring by the time I finish them. At least she'll have them for next winter.


  1. Well, if it's true that misery loves company, I'm here for ya. Yeah, I'm sick, too. I've been sleeping a LOT, but decided to read (blogs) for a bit.
    Hope you're better soon.

  2. Oh, crud. Literally. And I have not had the pleasure of trying the new cold medicines, which, since they've taken every effective ingredient out of them, I can't imagine ARE effective. Sheesh. I'm sorry you're feeling like warmed-over slop. Feel better soon!

  3. Oh bother! Very sorry, my dear! I know it sucks, but just take the time your body needs to recover. Warm soup, warm tea, a sinus irrigation or two and some quality kitty time should help. Thinking of you!

  4. Feel better!! I hate having the funk. It just ruins everything.

    Well wishes headed your way!
