Well, I'm still sick, but I am getting better today. My fever is staying low and I have a little more energy. I was able to open the windows in the house since it is nice out to get some germ-free air in.
I got some pussy willows at the supermarket the other week because they seemed nice and springy and they are sprouting roots, I should be able to plant them outside.
I haven't had much energy to do much knitting. I did, however, manage to finish the knitting part of the baby sweater:
I really want to knit those Knitty jeans too, I'm sure that baby's mom will love them.
I also did some of the colourwork on the lopapeysa, which is as awkward to photograph as it is to work on when you are doing the yoke:
When it sits on my floor next to my desk, it's amazing how much it looks like my dog out of the corner of my eye (same colours). Ingi promises not to get us confused when I wear it. ;)
And then.... I started the second baby sweater. I guess this will be summer of Baby Project, because this thing is going to take a while. I can pick up some UFOs to work on for myself when I get tired of it. It's amazing how long it takes you to knit 2 cm of garter stitch on 2mm(US 0) sock needles (I didn't have nor could I buy the right size circular), especially when you are feeling very weak.
I'm hoping I'm feeling all better by Saturday. I am supposed to go to Boston to visit a university friend (the same one from whom the kókósbollur recipe comes) whom I haven't seen since her midsummer party last year, and maybe go dress shopping... this has been planned for so long so I hope I still get to go.
