This has been a rather tough week. Having just started to recover from last weekend, I came down with a sickness and diarrhoea bug yesterday and spent all day in bed. I crawled downstairs at about 2pm for some painkillers and to check the post and discovered the new issue of Yarn Forward which cheered me up. I then went back to bed until about 8pm when I felt well enough to get up. The problem with back pain is that lying in bed all day does my back no good at all. I was in total agony by the end of the day. I'm feeling a lot better today but still a little delicate. But Simon has been ill today but nowhere near as bad as I was. Vanessa is coming down with a bad cold, so looks like we'll have a quiet weekend.
On hte knitting front, I've concentrated on swatching today. I did cast on for a new shawl earlier in the week and I'll get a pic of that soon. It's in Supreme Lace and is a traingular shawl. The swatching today has been for new magazine designs which will be e-mailed to various editors over the weekend. I didnt take on any new design work in the run up to Ravelry Day so I need to get some commissions in over the next couple of weeks.
