This has been a wild week. The Husband, who normally is great to have for back up driving, errand running or whatever, has been sick. He went to the doctor and was told he had bacterial pneumonia but even after a few days of antibiotics he still felt poorly. Add a bone rattling cough and everyone is feeling the effects. So yesterday when the school nurse called to say that N was sick I really wasn’t surprised. It would appear that he is about 4 days behind The Husband with a pneumonia mimicking virus. Now I look at H and myself and wonder who is next. Mental note: run to the store and buy chicken for soup.
The high point of the week has been mindless knitting. I was able to finish my socks this morning while I was waiting for N to finish his breakfast. I am really happy with the way they turned out and look forward to wearing them once they’ve been washed. The Trekking XXL yarn is a bit stiff and really benefits from a soak in Eucalan. As I said the yarn is Trekking XXL in what I think is color 91 though the ball band is missing. The pattern is one I keep in my head over 68 stitches. I did 7 inch legs and still have quite a bit of yarn remaining. Having small feet does have it’s plusses.
