I'm Still Sick!

I can't believe that I'm still sick! I took Tuesday off from work, and then Wednesday I tried to go in, but they sent me home at 8:30, because I felt, and apparently looked, like total crap. I went to the doctor as soon as I left work, and was diagnosed with the flu. I haven't had the flu in probably 7 or 8 years, and it's making me crazy. I feel totally guilty about not being at work.

I get bored pretty easily, so being at home all day everyday is like torture. With my small amount of energy I have left, I've been watching TV and knitting. A friend of mine dropped by yesterday to lend me her Happy Hooker book, because she heard I was sick and figured I'd want something to do. That's one of the nicest things a friend of mine has done in a long time.

I have been making good knitting progress as of late. I started on a cardigan on Friday night/Saturday morning for my niece who is now more than 3 months old. It's made out of RYC cashmere something or other. It has approximately the same content as Debbie Bliss Cashmerino. It totally rocks to work with. It knits up beautifully and quickly. I'm impressed that I was able to do the crochet edging, and I think it turned out very well.

I've started on the Baby Bolero from Cashmerino Baby II. I just finished the back. This one is a slow knit, so I think I might take a break from it to start on something for myself.

I wanted to post pics of my baby bolero progress, but since I'm really not feeling well, you'll have to wait.

I hope to be updating again soon.

I wish I were a baby. I would love wearing such a pretty bolero and the crochet edging is the icing on the cake:)
