I can NOT have a cold. Absolutely not! I've been invited and am thrilled to go to a knitting group tomorrow. There's no way I'm going as "Typhoid Mary". There's been chicken soup, orange juice, and a nap. Nyquil and Dayquil may have to get involved.

On son of Mitt, there's a total of two snowflakes on the back of the hand done, plus a row of the third. With the paper delivery, guest arriving last evening, and cleaning up the house, I didn't get a chance to knit until 9:30pm.

Bleh. I'm going to have to take another nap. Nothing sounds appealing, other than sleep. No knitting, reading, playing on the computer, none of it. The nice thing is that the house is still very clean. I'm hoping it'll stay that way through Monday, when my in-laws come over!

I'd told the Sit, Sip, & Knit group (SS&K) that I'd wear my Jaywalkers since they were clean and all. Just after I'd typed the statement, Fry came barrelling through here with my pair in hand. (She has her own pair!) I put a halt to that right quick. Obviously, handknitted socks are the socks of choice around here. ;) While I wouldn't mind washing ordinary socks tomorrow morning to wear in the afternoon, I'd like to not wear out these so soon.

Chelle, you are too kind. But then, judging by your own knitting skills and that of the SS&K group, you would know good knitting when you see it. ;)

I hope you get to feeling hale and hearty before tomorrow!

I'm lousy at being sick, but all my whining certainly makes the little family appreciate the fact that I rarely get that way.

I'm sending good thoughts your way. You do not need a cold that lasts 3 weeks (like mine has).

Oh Laura, have you tried taking Airborne yet? It really does seem to help, especially at the onset of a cold. I hope you get some good recuperative sleep and feel better tomorrow. Chelle
