I am now at the stage with my cold where it feels like it will never go away – that I’ll never be healthy again. I swear it actually feels like its getting worse again, but I try to remind myself that colds do take a long time. Larry is pushing Vitamin C on me and swears it will help – what is your rememdy? Because if I don’t start feeling better soon, I may just go crazy! Its been over a week, and its time – especially since we are having Indian summer and its beautiful out – and the only thing I want to do is sleep.
Friday was my birthday – and I had a really nice day. I took the day off and went golfing. It was a gorgeous day out, and we had a good time – after we had lunch on the deck. Just so nice to be outside in the sun after being cooped up at work all week.
I got lots of wonderful gifts from my family – cookbooks, wine, movies, chocolate – all my favorite things. I also got a little bit of yarn…
This is Merino Laceweight from the Woolen Rabbit. The colorway is Black Velvet and it is gorgeous!
This is Opulence by the Woolen Rabbit – it is a silk/merino blend. Its a sport weight, and I have about 600 yards. I love this yarn – I want to make either the Foliage shawl or maybe the Heartland Lace. I really want to cast on for this – I was so tempted on Friday night to just bail on current projects and start a new one. The yarn is just gorgeous.
Larry also gave me a light studio to use to take pictures of the blog now that I get home when its dark out. I took these pictures with it – and forgot to take a picture of itself! I will next time – it is very cool, and I think it will hep me capture colors accurately.
So there you go – all in all a very nice birthday. Life would be perfect if I could get rid of this cold and start feeling more like myself.
I bought a pattern the other night – Fair Enough – I think this will be my next project. I think it is so cute and would be great for this winter. I just need to find yarn for it – I have yarn in the stash, but think it may be too scratchy. I am going to Rhinebeck next weekend so maybe I’ll find some yarn for it there.
OK, I should get going – lots to do today. I hope you have a great rest of the weekend!
