I'm sorry to say I don't have much in the way of knitting to share. What started out as a minor sore throat on Tuesday had me parked on the couch most of Thursday. Now sometimes being under the weather is manageable. It can be a good excuse to take it easy, put your feet up and knit a few more rows. And sometimes it isn't an excuse for extra knitting time.
I've come to gauge my degree of sickness by my ability - or inability - to knit through it. Since I haven't been able to pick up my knitting for the last couple days, this bout of summer crud is the sickest I've been in a long, long time. Whatever this bug is, it's spreading quickly through the household. My son complained of a sore throat last night and was in bed by 10:00. That's a record for this house full of teenagers.
Today I feel I might have turned the corner. I'll see how the day progresses. Since I don't have much knitting progress to report, I thought I'd share my latest brainstorm.
Yarn Knot is a quarterly subscription I'm offering. Over the year we'll sample a variety of yarn blends and a mix of patterns all with an array of different colorways. There will also be a KAL happening over on Ravelry. Follow the link for more details. It promises to be a fun adventure.
Our dry spring has flipped into a rainy season. In fact today there are flood warnings. In between the showers I've managed to take a few pictures, including my color inspiration for the week.
Purple with yellow flecks.
