From my quarantined cell...

Love the Fall...but not so much a fan of the flu season that comes along with it.

I am a piece of cake for flu viruses; I have no immune system to speak of, so when people around me were getting sick, I knew my time has come. So, here I am - in my pjs, robe, bear feet slippers, and my flu kit (which consists of cough drops, an array of drugs, my herbal pal, yogurt, and Sleepy Time Extra). But it could be worse, because I'm still knitting...

I found this fun yarn in my random yarns basket - it's Sensations: Bamboo and Ewe Pattern. The colors are quite pretty, and I started a knit and purl thing - something simple and within the capabilities of my flu-addled brain. I think I'm going to end up with a scarf! Hopefully, I'll have something good enough to post tomorrow.

The Fiend is Back *shame and embarrassment*

The shame and embarrassment is for abandoning this blog for so long...thinking that I don't have enough time...and not thinking about knitting, or crocheting, or embroidering, or blogging for a while might give me more time to be a responsible person who takes cares of life matters and maintains meaningful relationships with others.

But Fall is upon us, and I can't help but start knitting again. What a fool I am for thinking I can avoid the knitting bug this year!

Very excited to see what others are knitting this year...and to see what some of my projects will turn out. Christmas is almost here, and my workshop is busy as heck getting these presents on the road!
