Sick at The Carnival

I was honored to have been chosen, and quoted for the Sixth Carnival of Knitting. The topic was knitting & pets, and as you all know, I have plenty to share on that topic. Although the photo below is not related to the story submitted, it is from my very favorite series of Rosco & "The Knitting" photos.

Well, I really was feeling better on Tuesday afternoon. Or I thought that I was. I went to the focus group. It was fine. It was actually a lot of fun! God knows I love to give my opinion on things that I love. We rated tons of yarns in a "blind taste test", answered questions about ourselves, & evaluated pattern books. No one but our group showed up, so it was like having a tupperware party. As for the free yarn, we were given color cards for 5 or 6 different yarns to choose from. I chose this one, I don't remember which color, probably green or brown. The yarn will be mailed to us, & I THINK that we will be receiving an entire bag.
Towards the end of the meeting I started feeling horrible!! When I got home I was running a fever of 102, and couldn't stop shaking with the chills. I haven't even felt like knitting. YES! It's been THAT bad. Today, the fever has broken, I have slightly more energy, but I still feel like crap! Thanks to all who have sent well wishes! I have been sleeping, drinking a ton of fluids, & taking it easy. Today, I will knit!

  1. feel better! If the thought of a whole bag of cashmere blend yarn doesn't cure you I don't know what will. :)

    Heh, I love cats'n'knitting pictures (well, obviously, look at my blog). Great photo!

    That looks like a very yummy yarn. How does one get on a yarn focus group anyway?! I want that job.

  5. I wish that I was feeling better just so that I could go to the grocery store and get that cereal with Johnny Depp on the box.. I can't resist how odd and disturbing that is. I guess this means they're planning on releasing the second movie soon.. since they're pulling out all the merchandise.

  6. Dude, I am sick again, too! Though not with the fever, etc that you have. The roof of my mouth hurts, and it hurts to swallow- ACK! Get better soon!

    P.S. found your blog from your flickr site. I really like it, even might inspire me to learn how to knit. Cheers, Jules
