What A Week!

(excuse my awful cell phone picture. haha)

Hey!

I've been pretty sick since last Thursday, hence no posts. I actually ended up in the hospital on Monday, where I found out that was having a minor "gastrointestinal" event. However, everything is okay now and I have a handful of different pills and elixirs to take for the next 8 days.

While I was laying around, I suffered from another (more fun) ailment; start-itis! Instead of working on my sweater or the hand towels for my bathroom, I became enchanted by Miss Stephanie Dosen's Beekeeper quilt. I got everything ready and realized that I didn't have the right needles, so I started my second Jaywalker sock(ravelry link). Last night, Dave drove me to A.C. Moore and I picked up needles for the quilt. I made my first little hexi-puff in about a half an hour!

384 more to go!

The hospital! I'm sorry for your gastrointenstines. And I'm sorry for being so mean to the voodoo doll we set up in your stead at knit night.

Oh, and we had fun perusing the beekeeper's quilt all evening. It is pretty intriguing!

Hey, I feel your pain. While on vacation last week, one kid got the stomach flu at the beginning while the second kid got it at the end of the week. Guess who got it over the weekend? Thank goodness you're feeling better - and have good projects to distract yourself with. I've always loved that quilt!

Elixers... it sounds so romantic. Glad you are better.

I have two rows of my first honeycombpuff (don't like the sound of hexipuff) done. It was late and I had to give it up for the night. Can't wait to get started in full force on them.
