Rest, yet progress

Tea and rest. Rest and tea. That is my work for today, and it will be accomplished in my new sheepy pajamas, under the little down comforter. As long as I don’t move my jaw much (as in talk) I’m fine. Everything went well yesterday — I am forever grateful to Rho for driving me and letting me huddle in the car while she went into the pharmacy to pick up my prescriptions. Thanks to everyone for the good vibes!

Since I’m taking it easy again today, I have some new knitting percolating. There’s even some new knitting on the needles since I curled up on the couch a couple of hours ago (I love sick days — you get out of bed, wander around for a little while, and then lie down somewhere else on purpose). There are two babies on the way in my world, so I cast on the Baby Bonnet from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts with the Malabrigo left over from the tea cozy. I also placed an order for some Blue Sky Organic cotton to make the Baby Soft Cardigan from Knitter’s Book of Yarn. Both of these projects should be quick and pleasant knits.

I was determined to finish my odd socks before Wednesday, and I did. They match well enough for me, and they did soften and bloom enough to be comfortable, but still sturdy. I can’t call the yarn scratchy — it’s just not. It’s rough, I suppose, but not harsh. And the colors are more interesting to me than the usual self-striping stuff that bores me to tears before I’ve finished the first sock. So odd they may be, but I’m pleased.


All this thinking and not-reclining on the couch has me worn out. I’ll get back to my knitting now. Maybe I TiVoed something halfway interesting, too.

  1. Those socks are lovely – hopefully a few more washings will soften them up more. I’m glad to hear you weathered your surgery! Have a cozy recuperative day. (Which sheepy pjs do you have??)

  2. You’re letting your tea cool before drinking it, right? I hope so. I love the socks, and the sheepy pajamas. Recover quickly! (But be sure to get some good wallowing in in the process.)
