YOP # 49....4 More to Go....

Well I thought being home sick that I would get lots done...uhm..nope..but I watched a lot of tv...good shows, crap shows..shows I've wanted to watch but didn't have the time....and several movies...

I did work on some things, mainly the Shark in the Woods cowl...but I hit a standstill, as there is quite a bit of cabling, and I had to ask questions a couple times, or search for what an abbreviation didn't get as far as I would have liked...

Today I'm feeling better, but I have 5 more days on the medicine and the roof of my mouth hurts..way back at the start of my throat...weird...probably from all the coughing and sucking on cough drops...I go back to work tomorrow...I have a voice, but I haven't really talked in 4 days, so we'll see if that triggers the coughing again...

And I started a few things....I had some Bernat Holiday Boa yarn I picked up last year and decided last night I needed to make the elf hat...the pattern they gave is knit and child-size, so I'm winging it..

I also decided I needed to start my "Have I Steered You Wrong?" socks..a kit from Schmutzerella's worsted and toe-up...I'm stuck on the short row heel..I've been looking for videos but haven't found one yet...I started it on a circular, but had to change to dpn's....

Oh and I tried arm knitting...that was an experience....I'll have to get some truly bulky yarn to try it with..I pulled some slighter bulky stuff, doubled it...but like my regular knitting, my tension was too loose... I'd be surprised if it doesn't fall apart...gonna wear it tomorrow, so we'll see...
I'll get better pictures for Friday...

I think that is all I started...there could be more...I was bored....but also sleeping a great deal...

I love your intrepid spirit. Why not just wear and wait for it fall apart. Live dangerously!!!

Hope the voice holds up and doesn't bring on bouts of coughing. Love the arm knitting and hope you get the answers soon for Shark in the woods

Glad you are feeling a bit better, that arm knitting looks great... I might have to take a closer look at this next year xx

I'm intrigued by arm knitting - I know it doesn't take too long, but are you attached to it the whole time? I'm not sure I can be sure of not being disturbed while doing it!
