I have gone and done it! Yes I came down with a cold and it feels like the Mother of all colds. Today is morning 3, Day one I was flat on my back all day and slept most of the day, day 2, yesterday I was better and I only slept about 4 hours during the 15 hours I was awake. Today I wake up with a nose that thinks it is a drain and a head that is throbbing, mild body aches and just a all around icky feeling, although I am starting to get hungry. So you ask how does this have anything to do with knitting? It does in that right now I am working on a sample of a the wrap I am working for the Italian yarn company that is very detailed lace and hard to do when you are foggy, and a sample for Knit Picks of one of my new cowls which has lace, short rows and cables. So as you can guess they are both sitting in time out till I am clearer headed but I do have a wrap I am working on that has an easy lace pattern for the center and then the edge is added later so I was able to work on that. So my Question to you is do you have something you could work on when you are sick or would you start something new?
