Yarn Along

I'm sick. I've been sick for 10 days now, not that I'm counting or anything . . . I haven't been able to breathe through my nose or taste anything for a week.  I haven't even really felt like knitting . . .
But today I bit the bullet, knocked back a few of those nasty cold and flu tablets and knit a few rows.
( I really needed the cold an flu tablets to get myself to school pickup, the knitting, a side effect)
A friend got me a new 2.5mm addi (picked up at school pickup  - it was the needles I was after, not the children!) to replace my broken bamboo pins and the ugly socks that have been languishing for too long are getting finished - Tonight! I declare.

These socks of mine, they are a Noro remnant that I got at the kinder fete earlier this year.  I'm not sure if I get the attraction to Noro yet, but I seem to keep buying it at every opportunity, so there must be something to it.  These are very odd, and not very attractive socks - but I will wear them lots.

I'm not really reading anything, I'm just trying to breathe. The girls want me to read Tashi. I have no idea what this is? Do you? Should I read it to them? (7&6 yo) Have you got any good book suggestions for that age group?
Happy Knitting!


  1. Sorry you are feeling under the weather, some sure is going around. Cold season is here in my part of the world too. Your socks are looking good and warm :)

  2. So sorry you're not feeling well! I too find it hard to knit (or do much of anything for that matter) when I'm all stuffed up. Hope it passes quickly!

  3. I'm so sorry I didn't cook you a stew!
    Yes read Tashi! We love him and perfect for the girls! I will lend you our Tashi big books!
    Happy recovery!
