I've been keeping myself entertained with reading your blogs while I refrained from feeling sorry for myself and writing any tear jerky posts.
I've not been out of the house since Friday night, that is until today. I'm feeling better and decided to venture outdoors and buy some batteries for my camera. One of the boys had pinched my camera's batteries to power one of their gd$#% video game remotes.
While I was in bed, I wasn't sure what to do with all the time I had on my hands. I did start another pair of socks
I've gotten the Jaywalker pattern pretty much committed to memory now but I've got to tell you, knitting socks on zer0 needles is not therapeutic! I found myself trembling and breaking out in sweats each time I got to where I might have lost a stitch count. Also, knitting socks on zer0 needles while you are on drugs is not a good idea either
I did manage to finish one sock.
And, even though I had quickly started the second one, I couldn't handle it anymore, my eyes and fingers said, "no mas".
This is Sweet Georgia Brown yarn given to me by my swap buddy, LaVerna. The pattern was very easy but I still had to frog it once.

I think I could have gotten away with size 3 needles because the sock did come out a bit snug
Another thing about having too much time on your hands is you watch too much tv. I saw Out of Africa - hated it; Dancer Upstairs (for the 4th time) -loved it; Lost in Translation - that Cappola family is amazing; and tons of CSPAN. What was I doing while watching the tube?
This is the first time I've done this design. It's called the Bobble Hat. It only took one skein plus just a couple of yards from a second.
I wore it around the house for a few hours.
"So Mom, what's for dinner?"
One of the challenges of being sick and living with all men is that you are pretty much on your own for grub.
I pulled out my favorite cookbook and turned to a random page and came up with Chicken Pilau. I had all of the ingredients on hand, fortunately. It came out pretty good. I'd show you a picture but it looked disgusting. Instead I'll show you what I made for the #1 vegan son -
Well, I'm tired again. Too much thinking, too much typing, too much cooking, too much knitting (hey, did I say that??)
