Cough rehabilitation corner...

Wednesday, 10 August 2011

I didnt get a wink of sleep last night so I had a day off work for some wallowing 'Cripes I feel grotty' time... This is where it took place...

I had all the essentials that a poorly wool obsessed woman would need...
I am so close to finishing the Dolly Mixture blanket and itching to start the next project. Although I do think that finishing some already started ones may be a better idea.

Projects currently on the go are as follows in order of importance (this is the bit where I frighten / depress myself at how much Ive started at once)...

Long cabled cardigan in pure wool swaledale for Littlest - Back completed, but does it still fit?
Brown Sparrow cardigan in Ethical twist, Camel and Lincoln green for me - Back completed.
LOVE blanket in double knit random - 1/6 th completed.
2 new scarves for the shop - completed but without buttons.
Jacobs wool chunky jacket for winter for me - Back completed.
There seems to be a trend here of finishing the back and then... well, then just finishing... maybe I could stitch all the backs together...
Tippet in arctic white called Snow Queen for the shop - half made.

O dear me! Better stop blogging and get knitting I think!
How many projects have you started???? Go on, make me feel better!

  1. What lovely blankets those are - and I hope you are feeling better soon!

    I'm rather proud of myself with only 4 open project currently - a baby blanket (about half done), a pair of very fine lace socks (one halfways done), a sweater (back and half front done), and a granny square blanket (3/4 done).

    And it's a fight, every day ... I see some lovely pattern, and find myself wandering towards my stash, thinking "didn't I have in there? Maybe I could quickly ..."
    So far, I've managed to stick to my 4 WIP rule, though, and it works out pretty good - much higher finish rate, yay!

  2. I hope you are feeling much better now - rotten to feel poorly in the summer. I had a very bad coughing thingy a couple of years ago and a friend made me roast garlic mixed with honey. It was a bit disgusting but stopped the cough completely after a few days. Karen X

  3. Hoping you feel better soon.
    We all had a cough at the beginning of Summer, unfortunately we had antibiotics in the end, but to be honest I think it was a virus that just took a while to go and that coincided with taking the antibiotics.
    Try thyme tea and lots of honey.
    Blessings to you.
