Sep 22

Well, I am sad to say that Sandy and I did not make it to Yellow Springs this weekend, and it is totally my fault.  I have been sick most of the week (starting Tuesday) with what is commonly called Con Crud.  Basically, I encountered someone at the Cincinnati Comic Expo who passed on their cold germs to me, and I ended up missing Wednesday, part of Thursday and Friday at work.  Yesterday, I managed to get out for a trip to the grocery store, but it exhausted me.  Sandy and I had hoped we could still go today, but, sadly, no.

While I am not happy about this, I figure there is a reason God did not want me going, so Sandy and I will make other plans for getting our fleeces in for processing.  There might be another road trip in the near future, who knows.

Today, I hope to be able to do something besides watch YouTube videos (the UK version of Antiques Roadshow is hilarious and their items way older than what we have) and knitting on my blanket.  I can’t even knit on Colette’s vest because I left it at work.

The blanket is coming along nicely, though.  It’s about 28″ wide out of the 48″ I need at this point.  Of course, it is taking longer and longer to get around a row as it grows, but I love the building up of the squares.  I guess, in a way, it’s kind of like a Trip Around the World quilt in a knitted format.

Have a lovely Sunday!
