Feeling Lousy Sunday

The cold seems to have turned into a sinus infection. I've not been able to do much all weekend, so I'm now suffering from enormous guilt. There's a lot to do...

I've tried very hard to work on the Koolhaas Hat that I started Friday night. I've now ripped it out to the ribbing twice. But that's not before I'd spent hours tinking stitch by stitch trying to figure out what I'd done wrong. You name it? I've probably done it. Ending with one stitch too few, one too many, dropping stitches, and then the proverbial "How the heck did I end up on row 5 when I just did row 6, and oh, yes, I do know how to read a chart?"

I'm back here again - at the ribbing. The stitch count is correct. I'll try again, but not don't suppose that the yarn is cursed? That's the Knitpicks Merino Style I used to knit the doomed Steeler's Aibhlinn.

I must admit that I took enormous pleasure last night in knitting away on this hat while the Steelers LOST to the Jaguars! (Yeah!)

(sorry Steelers' fans - nothing personal - except where one Steelers' fan is concerned)

And yes, I guess that might surprise some folks to learn that Knitnana has just a touch of a petty, vindictive streak...(ok...if that's the worst of it, I suspect you'll all allow it)

Anyway...I gave up on the Koolhaas for now, and finished this:

One more to go. I just love Roxanne's yarn (70 merino, 30 sea silk). My toes do, too!

Now if I can just get myself around to consider going back to work tomorrow.
Please pass the tissues?

Ugh. I just started antibiotics for a sinus infection myself. There's a virtual tissue headed your way! :-)

Beautiful sock! Hope that sinus infection holds off getting any worse until you can reach your doctor tomorrow. {{{HUGS}}}

Ugh, feel better Sallee! I know that guilt feeling all too well when it comes to work and not feeling well. Hang in there.

You're sick! You shouldn't feel guilty because of that - you need to rest and take care of yourself. Lots of people are ending up with pneumonia right now, so be careful!

I'm so sorry to hear about that sinus infection! Those are terrible.

That was some game yesterday. I was out to dinner and I actually snuck out to the bar to catch some of the 4th quarter. How rude of me!

I hope you feel better! Sometimes starting a new project takes more concentration than you would think. I've done the same thing, especially when I am not feeling well.

I started a Koolhaas last week, when I had the flu. It took me 5 days with lots of ripping but I finally got it. Then I started another, after starting to get better, and it only took me 2 days! You can do it! And feel better soon. :-)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
