But, I don't wanna go back to school... Wah...

Today was my first day back from winter vacation. If you are a regular reader, you might have noticed I haven't been posting everyday like I had been doing.. WHY? I was SICK.. and just didn't feel that good. I had follow-up doctor visits every 3 days and I'd get more 'meds' too.. At first I was taking 14 pills a day! I know that some of the pills were antibiotics and the rest? Here the pharmacy gives you your meds all divided up in little packets for your daily dosages-- and in my case it was 3 times a day. So, I just marked the packages: AM, L (for lunch), and PM. I was taking whatever you take for a severe upper respiratory infection.

I'm on the mend now- but, I feel like I was cheated out of some of my vacation days though.

I did manage to knit some, went to the market a couple of times (even if I was dragging and wished that I was home laying down), and watched some old movies on DVD.
But, mostly.. I was sick.

Here is the most recent knitted project- a cable hat...

And a couple of my friends went to New Zealand for Christmas. I'm teaching one of them how to knit and she brought me a skein of this wonderful 'hand-dyed' 'hand spun' wool from New Zealand. Doesn't it look like a box of crayons?

I bought these two colors to go with the NZ yarn-- I was thinking about either a purse, cuff on a pair of gloves or mittens, or even a scarf accented with the 'crayon box' yarn. I think that I like the blue yarn best??? What do you think?

Hey! I'm so sorry to hear you've been sick! That's no way to spend vacation!

I like the blue yarn best, too :)

Thanks.. (yeah, I think I should get a couple of free days off, don't you?) :D

In person, both the purple and blue yarns match perfectly-- but, I do agree about the blue looking the best.. now, to figure out what to make???

Well, I vote for the blue too - like the "brightness" of it with the crayons :-)

Glad to hear you are on the mend...

I sooooooo love that hat. I can't believe you did it in one night. I am a new knitter but can't wait to make something like that. Love that pattern

Kim,
Thank you for the nice comment and for visting my blog! If you don't know how to make cables-- get someone to show you how- you can learn in 5 minutes and they look so hard but they are really EASY!
