Ugh. I’ve spent the last several days in bed with bronchitis. Sick as a dog. Coughing elegantly, every 2 minutes. (Does “barking seal” mean anything to you?) And when you’re too sick to knit? Not good. Or maybe my brain was just TSTK while it was fevered. (Too Stupid To Knit) At any rate, I’m halfway back today. Still coughing and wheezing and I’m making it a short day. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. Good news – I’m staying clear of orders. We won’t be packaging up any germs to send your way. I promise!
Of course, being TSTK for the past few days means that I haven’t made any more progress on my Mini Challenge Sweater. I hope I can get back to that tonight. For those of you working on them, all Sweater Challenges need to be completed and photos entered by July 7th. When entering your photo into our Loopy gallery, don’t forget to include yarn information. Without that, we can’t get them approved and up! I love what you all have completed so far. We have another challenge coming up that will start July 1st. I’ll blog about it on Wednesday.
Since it’s Monday, we’ve added new things to the website tonight. Just up:
