My household has been hit by a mid-winter bug that's been claiming victims one after another. Even though I tried my hardest to avoid it, it was inevitable it would catch up with me eventually. It didn't knock me flat on my back, but it definitely took the wind out of my sails. When vitamin C and endless cups of tea didn't send it packing, I decided to ease up on my schedule and take it easy.
For me, taking it easy doesn't mean sleeping for hours and hours. Taking it easy means rearranging my schedule, canceling a couple appointments and hunkering down with my knitting.
This yarn has been waiting patiently since last fall. I'm sure a new sweater will make be feel better.
