No < insert noun > today, Mom's sick

No photos today, Mom is sick.

I can't tell you how many times I said that this weekend. No light saber fights today, Mom's sick. No chess games today, Mom's sick. No princess dress-up see what I mean?

So you, dear reader, will have to wait your turn. Just like my kids. Because Mom is sick. (I'm actually starting to feel better, but I see the need to milk this for all it's worth).

I am ashamed to admit that it was a marathon movie watching weekend at my house. That's what happens when Mom is sick. It's a good thing we had some new movies in the house, including Cinderella and Star Wars 1 & 2. The kids were thrilled and I got a lot of knitting time.

Ah hah - knitting content! You may have been wondering when we would get around to that.

First to report, Wool Peddlers is done! She is even blocked!!!!! It is gorgeous, huge, and I really, really, really want to make another. I might even use my handspun for it.

Second, and not so dramatic, is a multi-directional scarf made out of Blue Sky's Alpaca and Silk in the mocha colorway. This stuff is like heaven on earth. I wish I hadn't added a charm-type bit of color splash, because the novelty yarn distracts from the softness. I still need to weave in the ends and add fringe on this scarf. Photos will come, eventually... but not today, because Mom is still sick.
