Lousy immune system...

I'm sick again with a sinus infection (yeah, the sort I wasn't supposed to get anymore after my surgery three months ago). So I'm a bit mopey and feverish. It's cooling down now (it's evening) and I'm feeling a little less hot and horrible, so I thought I'd write a quick blog entry.

I haven't been knitting much, but in an evening and the following morning this weekend, I knit a chemo cap for a friend. The cap needs to be blocked — well, first it will be carefully cleaned, AFTER I am well, to remove germs — but here it is in its crumpled state, modelled by Elmo:



Specs: Chemo Hat from Knit Picks, knit with just under 1.5 skeins of Shine Sport using US #3 needles. It's amazingly soft.

Oh bum! (That means bottom, doesn't it!?) I'm sorry to hear you've got this again. I am sending you healing thoughts and well wishes.
