A very Turbo Christmas

Just popping in to wish everybody a Merry Christmas (or a really splendid Friday)!

Three guesses which thing in the photograph above provides the greatest comfort in the face of a very much worse cold. Having a bad cold isn't so bad in itself, but having it when one is meant to be spending Christmas with a group of really nice people, some of whom are immune-suppressed and facing more than enough health challenges already thank you very much - well, that means just one thing:

Staying at home with a box of tissues for company.

On the other hand, one could also say that I now have five bonus hours in which to knit the last two lingering presents


if I finish them, I could use any of these dreamy new needles (the perfect length for hats, did you notice?) to start a hat I've been wanting to make.

One might also note that TCM is running a string of movies I don't hate, but won't be tempted to watch too closely while I knit, either. All in all, kind of a fabulous agenda, don't you think?

So sorry about the cold. Hunker down, make some hot chocolate (and stir it with the candy cane), and knit as much as you feel like and sleep the rest of the time. Merry!

Ooooh! :( Poor you. What a rotten time to get a cold. Hope your better soon. Stir the hot chocky with the candy cane, now there's an idea eh?

Sorry about the cold, but hope things are well otherwise? (I have been feeling a bit of a sore throat coming on today as well, and am drinking ginger tea and keeping fingers crossed...)
