I apparently have no immune system left...

Last week I had to stay at home for four days due to a very nasty cold. Then I worked on Friday, had a lazy weekend, worked Monday, and then threw up on Monday night. Yes, I also contracted stomach flu. Yuck! I've been home for three days now, but tomorrow I'm going back to work again. And then it's another weekend! I haven't gotten as much knitting done this week as I wished either, as I've been too nauseous to do pretty much anything other than watching bad TV.

I am making progress on the Emelie cardigan though, as that is pretty much the only thing I've been working on. I've finished the body of the cardigan, and sewed the shoulders together, and I had finished half of the first sleeve on Tuesday night. Yesterday when I had a look at it though, I realized that I had picked up too few stitches for the sleeve, and it looked all puckered and strange. I took a deep breath, and ripped the whole sleeve out. Yesterday night I had gotten back to about where I was before the ripping, and I think I might finish the rest of the sleeve tonight or tomorrow. It is looking so much better this time around though, so I'm happy I redid it.

I also got a package in the mail this week, but it's not yarn. I bought yet another JessaLu bag the other week, my third one. This is the regenerating Tardis fabric, and I LOVE it!

I'll get another, exclusive bag with the Mad Color Fiber Arts Mad Geek Tour club at the end of the month too, and I'm thinking of renewing my subscription for the club for three more months. The difficult thing is that she has added a new theme for the upcoming months, and now I can't decide between Doctor Who and Battlestar Galactica! I really want to be in both, but I think I want to join the Sheepy Time Knits next round of Time Traveler yarn club as well, and I can't really afford all three. I asked Thomas which he thought would be more fun, and he just sighed and had no opinion as it concerned yarn. I'll have to think about this for a while.

Ok, I have nothing more to show you this week. And unfortunately, as I've been so sick, and my friend Christine has had a fever this week too, she and her son Leo aren't coming this weekend either. I'll see if I can churn out a second sleeve this weekend instead, as we have absolutely no plans. I just hope that Thomas doesn't get sick too!

Oh, and I almost forgot to tell you: Our little Toki turned one year old on Monday! Time really flies!
