What to do when a cold lays you low

Some time before the holidays I was rummaging around in my stash (which is extensive BTW) for something and came across six skeins of the old Aracuana Ranco Multi yarn. Matched up two colors and proceeded to knit a shawlette. Except I didn't like the colors in a shawlette so threw it in the Time Out Corner so it could decide what it wanted to be and would behave itself.

Earlier this week I decided it would be a Little Person's Cardigan, and so the designing commenced. This is the shawlette half unraveled:

And here's the beginning of the Cardigan:

Somehow that raspberry pink just wasn't working with all those colors in the shawlette, but the burgundy and pine green complement it nicely. I'm actually done with both sleeves--thanks to the snuffles and coughing and the reluctance to anything that requires braining--and am on to the body this afternoon.

I will now return to my binge-watching of MASH and knitting on the body and trim. Have a great day!

Quote of The Day

“When a toxic person can no longer control you, they will try to control how others see you. The misinformation will feel unfair, but stay above it, trusting that other people will eventually see the truth, just like you did”.
Jill Blakeway

This describes a lot of people who have been in--and then been pushed out of--my life. Several of them do not eventually see the truth, but that's not my circus nor my monkeys. And that's all I have to say for today.
