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?
