ugh. the last few days have not been fun in our house. the kids came down with some stomach bug. so far i've managed to stay clear of it... let's hope it stays that way! the kidlets seem to be doing much better today, except i think my son now has a lovely case of pink-eye. ew.
i've been working on what might become a small throw blanket while the kids were ill. it's being created with Moda Dea's Cache yarn that was gifted to me. this stuff is fun :)
i was working on a lovely Jaywalker sock in Sockotta, but as the sickies hit, i stopped paying that much attention to it and it ended up a bit too long for my foot, so i ripped it out last night and do intend to start over eventually. the Jaywalker pattern is fun, now i know why it's been such a big hit all over the internet. it's a great pattern that's easy to memorize and easy to keep up with while other things are going on around you. and it knits up super fast (which is why i didn't have a big problem just frogging the sock to start over).
i'm dying to get out of the house for some fresh air today. i think i'll see if the kids would like to do some rollerblading along the front sidewalk for a while. i'd love to get some errands done, but bringing pink-eye boy out into public like that might not be appreciated by others ;)
