In sickness and in health...

I was stuck in bed, sick, pretty much all of yesterday. How this played out:


Opening one seriously weakened hand to prop up Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac.

Dozing off.

Scrabbling at the table beside the bed for a scrap of paper - carefully, so the pen sitting on it wouldn't roll off and I could grab both.

Regrouping, and making notes.

More reading until

Falling asleep again.

Waking up and trying to fix an image in my mind, then

Sketching a shape, then

Bribing somebody to bring me some yarn and a pair of needles so I could work out a stitch from the Almanac.

And then reading on.

Yep, I was working out a design for a hat. I have a bad feeling that with my dying breath, I will be muttering the sequence for the perfect lace repeat.
