Sicky, poorly, baaaaad.

Yeuch!  I’m ill!

I’ve been off work for the last week.  It started with a cough and a sore throat and has turned into tonsilitis, a very sore throat and a wracking cough.  I’m on antibiotics and on the mend, but feel as if I’ve been through the wringer.

To cap it all I lost a filling Friday night, so that involves waiting to be seen by my dentist as I’m not in pain and it’s not an emergency.  My DVD player broke on me yesterday which wouldn’t normally be an issue, but when I’m like I am now all I want to do is to cwtch up under my ‘noo noo’ (a thick and cuddly fleecy blanket) and watch nice films/programmes and sip warm drinks and nibble nice foods.

Knitting

All this quiet time has given me the chance to just knit while I watch DVDs.  I did buy a set of circular knitting needles and a set of brightly coloured aluminium crochet hooks from Knitterknacks on eBay.co.uk, and I was amazed when the items were delivered this morning!  Now, there’s service for you!  I have a good range of sizes now to keep me busy.

I have made a few tiny baby gowns and blankets for Cuddles and I will be seeing to finishing the last couple off and getting them in the post soon.  I also have some 8″ squares to send to Knit-A-Sqaure so they may be made into blankets for needy children in South Africa.  I’m also knitting a moss-stitch blazer for myself in purple aran yarn.  I try to split my time evenly between the various projects, which is fun for me as I don’t get bored doing the same thing!  The squares and baby clothes are fun to do as they are much quicker to complete than my large blazer (I’m not a tiny nor thin lady …).  I have forgotten the pleasure I get from creating this way.  In time, I’ll find the confidence to create my own patterns … more so as I shrink in size when the time is right for my protective layer of fat to be lost.

  1. That’s the only plus-side to sick days – more knitting time! I remember coming down with some bug or other last year which lasted a fortnight, which gave me lots and lots of time to work on a lovely estonian lace shawl. It would have taken me months without that enforced idle time!

    • That’s what I’m finding! Not so much work on something big, but the number of squares for KAS and the little gowns and blankets for Cuddles are growing. It’s a nice, quiet way to spend time when you’re awake and not up to doing much else. And thank you for the comment too!
