i’m here! i mean, i made it. phew! hahaha
i am so blasted sick of being sick i can’t even tell you. wednesday and thursday i was walking around feeling better - even did that last post at the wee hours into friday morning. THEN! friday i woke up with neck and shoulders stiff and sore & my head pounding so i thought, ok. take some ibuprofin and get on with it. and that’s what i did. and i ate breakfast and sat on the couch with mae and all the while was feeling worse and worse. then i puked my guts out. fever kicked in and i slept until 2:30. mae made me some lunch (grapes and goldfish crackers) & decided she’d had enough of this nonsense. she suggested she visit with nana since they would be spending the day together on saturday any how. what a funny and clever girl she is. nana came to her rescue and i dove back into my fever-induced slumber.
saturday was more of the same - and hub’s birthday. whoops. he went out of town with his dad so the guilt was lifted a bit.
sunday came and i was crawling the walls! mae and i grabbed nana and headed for the ima where we saw some some of this:
and some of this:
but really, most importantly, while laying about on saturday… THIS HAPPENED!
i really enjoyed knitting this even if it may have been a personal record for dragging a project of this size out. the details are just exquisite in this tiny gem & it was fun working the bottom up. it gave my brain something new to process… and… i will say there was a thrill in finishing with three stitches. here is the pattern link : andrea’s shawl
i hope everyone has a lovely monday! xo
