This past week I came down with a pretty nasty sore throat and chest cough. Frankly, I blame undergrads.
Somehow, nighttime formula Robitussin – by which I mean the super extra-drowsy kind with all kinds of warnings – does not make me sleepy. Not even remotely tired. In fact, it makes my heart race and gives me insomnia. Meanwhile non-drowsy daytime sinus decongestants or heck, those sugar-free vitamin C cough drops, make me want to pass out in a drooling coma.
My point is that I’ve had a lot of time when I’ve been not sleeping and feeling lousy. Knitting has been my primary means of preserving sanity.
I cast on Molly Ringwald, from the Fall 2006 Knitscene, and it’s coming along nicely.
I’ve been trying to figure out why I like the color of this yarn (Bernat Satin in Sage) so much, and I think it’s because it reminds me of ground malachite, my favorite pigment in painting (when ground it’s more like this).
I just wish all this 3×1 ribbing would go faster!
