That's how I've been feeling this week - realy blah!! Whatever that means. I've been tired, fed up, feeling sick on and off, no energy and I've had diarrhoea since Monday. I'm getting really fed up with this now. Simon keeps saying I hsould go to the doctor but I jsut can't be bothered. They never do anything anyway.

Okay, enough about that. I'd hoped to show another pic of a FO today. I've nearly finished another pair of socks - my Spring Harvest pair and i've no idea why it's taking so long to do. I was determined to finish it today but its still not done.

And I cast on for the Sockamania May socks today. I'd decided on a pattern, test knitted the foot, typed up the pattern. I started, did the toe then changed my mind and started swatching with new stitch patterns again. What am I thinking???? I haven't got that long to get it done. I've changed my mind about a dozen times today and frogged umpteen times as well. I'm now half way through the cuff. Still not decided on a stitch pattern for the leg. About time I did really.

And just to cheer myself up a bit - have a look at this:

Isn't the yellow one a sunny and cheerful colour. These skeins are all 'Emily' from Posh Yarns. I've cast on for a new version of the 'Ocean Waves' shawl in the blue/green/purple colour and I love the way it's knitting up. Was supposed to have taken a pic today but forgot. Oops. Will get one tomorrow. Not sure why I cast on for a new shawl as i've got two (or is it 3) otn already. But this yarn was calling to me. 'Emily' is really nice to knit with. It's a very stretchy, springy yarn. I really like it.

Hope you're feeling better soon. I love the colours of the Emily you chose - I had three lots of Emily through the post today. It's gorgeous yarn to knit with and feels heavenly on your feet. :0)

Hope you feel better soon Anni. I love the Emily yarn. I was lucky and managed to get some gorgeous Emily Water Nymph in beautiful greens and blues which is calling to me to cast on a new pair of socks :)
