uhhhhhh...

We've been struck down with yucky sickness, as my hubby said earlier today "my throat feels like I've swallowed hot toxic sand." Robby is feeling fine, I'm just doing my best to nurse this cold and keep him from licking shoe soles and eating day old pancetta bits that have fallen on the floor.

You guys are so nice, sticking with me so far, and for your patience, I've got some goodies to show you. After some discussion and three failed sleeves on the Adult Tomten, I'm giving up on it, and making myself a Demi from Vintage Knits. I'm using the Beaverslide Fisherman Weight. It's bobble-licious.This is the Tangled Yoke, I've got the body done up to the armholes and am now working on the first sleeve. I'm using Rowan Cashsoft 4-ply.
Christmas came and went in a blur, I made lots of knitted gifts, and stayed up many late nights, I made three Gretel's, a pattern from Ysolda, and a pair of fingerless mitts for the husband. I've also started on a Noro scarf for my cousin, I know it's a very belated Christmas gift, but that's ok.

Check out Robby's blog at www.robbycubed.blogspot.com (sorry for the lack of linkage, blogspot is doing something funky). If you don't have the super secret password, just leave me a comment!

The ick is definitely going around. I had if for almost 2 weeks! Rest up and take care of yourself. Your Tangled Yoke looks like it's coming along beautifully.

Hope you feel better soon!
