Wrapped up in merino ….. and swap update

Thankfully my proposed Saturday workshop has been moved until next weekend as this flu, while getting a little bit better is still a long way from over.  It is so frustrating to go from hot to feverish and bathed with sweat in the blink of an eyelid and tired to exhausted in the space of those same few seconds!  I have been trying to stay in bed for most of the day (memory foam is a LOT more comfortable than lounging around on the couch) in an effort to shift this dose asap but yesterday evening I just had to do something fibre related (must have been feeling a BIT better!) while watching some mindless television in front of the stove. 

Soft merino cowl

Recently I received a skein of gorgeous handspun ‘pancake and lulu’ merino in one of my all time favourite colours from Suzy (aka Hollyhill) in a swap on Ravelry.  I wasn’t totally sure if there would be enough yarn to knit a cozy cowl for myself but happily things worked out just perfectly and this afternoon I have been able to keep my neck snug.  Do excuse the bug eyed photo but it was the best I could do taking a photo of myself with my phone camera, in fact I think my eyes look more swollen in reality after the last few days anyway!

Clasheen Crafty Swap update ……. Promise to get partners assigned by Monday at the latest, just give me one more day to recover from this dose.  Anyone wanting to sign up this late pop over to our group on Flickr and I will include you in this round.  Thanks Kirsten for jogging my dozy memory!

  1. Have you tried a teaspoon cinnamon every day? It helps to recover from a flu and pumps up your resistance. As soon as the fall begins, I drink my coffee with a little cinnamon on top of the milk -in stead of cacao-. It’s a grannies-recipe and it really helps!

    Get well soon!

  2. Oh Nicola,

    So sorry to hear that you are still battling the flu. Seems it has really hit hard this year and in a very concentrated time period. Hoping that by tomorrow you’ll have turned the corner and be feeling much better.

    Love the cowl…And, the “pancake and lulu” (love the name…Can’t say that without smiling) is so you. Matches your pullover perfectly.

    Get well soon.

    Hugs,
    Dawn
