. . . under the weather. You know, that feeling you get just before a cold? I'm planning on drinking lots of hot tea this afternoon. After all Saturday is my birthday and I really don't want to be sick on the day I turn 36!
So needless to say I'm kind of floundering through the day. I wanted to show you that I have been knitting though:
I've been working on a new bag design! I just love knitting felted bags. There's something about Cascade 220 and size 10 1/2 circs. It's my mac & cheese knitting. It's so comforting to me. I don't know what it is. So that's what I've been working on during the Olympics. It's perfect because I don't have to look at what I'm doing.
I also wanted to tell you about the yarn shop that Theresa and I got a chance to visit last weekend. It's called Peggy's Strands of Heaven and it's in downtown Plainfield, IL. The selection of yarn was really nice and shop was cute. It's an old building and she kept a lot of the original fixtures. There were places to sit and knit too. I didn't buy much as I'm trying to work down the stash, but I couldn't resist this summery Trekking yarn:
That's Trekking XXL in colorway 107. My Trekking 100 socks are my favorites to wear, so I think this is probably a good investment.
Now I'm off to finish up some work so I can get some rest this afternoon. I will not be sick on my birthday -- I refuse. (Me stomping my foot on the ground and crossing my arms. Hmph!)
