I told you I was sick*

This is a quiz to see if you are paying attention.

You can tell I am really sick because:

1.) I am too tired to spin.

2.) I gave up knitting lace as too complicated, cast on a hitchhiker shawl from my handspun, stopped knitting that because it was too heavy.

3.) I have no interest in food, and haven’t eaten more than 2 bites since Friday.

4.) All of the above.


I don’t want to give away the answer,  but suffice to say it was serious enough to make me take days off from work and actually go to the doctor.  Turns out I have a sinus infection and an ear infection.  If the meds work, I should feel much better in three days. If I don’t I am to go straight back to the doctor.

I hope that is unnecessary.

Good night!

  1. Sounds like a sorry state indeed. Hope you get enough strength back to knit and feel well enough to eat but not so good that you have to go back to work 🙂

  2. Well dang! That’s disappointing! Please feel better soon. I agree, when knitting is too heavy and complicated, that’s sickness. The other thing that always gets me? I stay home, decide the sheets are too gross from me being sick and sweaty, decide to change them. Then I take them off the bed, and that’s all the energy I have, and now I have nowhere to nap.

  3. Feel better soon. Hope the meds kick in fast. It’s no fun feeling too sick to knit or spin. Sending good healing vibes your way.

  4. Sorry to hear you’re unwell. You’re having a rotten year healthwise 😦 I’d go for all the above too. As for ‘I told you I was sick’ – It’s also the inscription on British comedian Spike Milligan’s headstone.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
