Finally Getting Better

I have had lots of time to knit over the past few weeks as I have been at home sick, ostracized like I have the plague, until the doctor finally determined that it was most likely some form of pneumonia and gave me an antibiotic to get it out of my system.

But the good part has been the down time to get a lot of knitting done.
I now have finished my multidirectional scarf in the awful yarn, it was a very fuzzy mohair which was in a great colorway, but it was impossible to correct any mistakes, and to match the colors when moving from one ball to another.

A strawberry cap, and another quick cap for the knit a cap project also came off the needles this week.

I also started on a premie cap and the beginning of my self designed lace shrug, hopefully it will come out as well as I see it in my mind. I will post pictures when both are further along.

I have decided that I want to replace all of my metal double pointed needles with either wood or synthetic material ones. The metal is just too hard on my hands, and given that I am a much looser knitter then I used to be, I don't think breaking needles will be as much of a problem as it used to be.

Finally, Nicki has been by my side taking good care of me while I have been sick, the little nose kisses and purring while sleeping on my tummy seems to be her best form of medicine, and it actually seems to have helped!

Now, off to knit and sleep and get rested and feel better!
