So, I’m still sick. Yesterday I was feeling better, I did do dishes, started knitting the sweater for my husband and otherwise sat around reading and watching silly YouTube videos.
I had spent most of the day before knitting gauge swatches for the sweater and then yesterday I had to wait half the day until they were all the way dry. Interestingly the merino/cotton blend doesn’t really change gauge after washing. Huh.
After watching a Crowdcast-thing with Becca Syme after lunch I finally got to do all the measurements and calculations and started the sweater proper. This is how far I got until now, this is the start of the upper back and the pattern is the Anyday Sweatshirt by Ysolda Teague:
My husband went out for lunch with a friend which meant the boy and I had frozen pizza again. Boy only woke up after I had finished eating. Apparently he flipped the switch to nocturnal again.
And yes, my husband’s homemade pizza was better than this. But I don’t have a problem eating pizza two days in a row.
I went to bed a little late, did not sleep well because every time I wake up in the night it takes me ages to fall back asleep because of the coughing. Woke up at 7.15 this morning from the alarm because I was supposed to wake the boy up at 7.30. Which I did. I don’t think he’ll be going to uni today, though. I had a bit of a high temperature again which is always a bad sign for me.
I did reschedule tomorrow’s orthopedist appointment and was lucky to get another one in two weeks. It’s nothing urgent, I just want another prescription for insoles.
So I guess I’ll spend today lounging about again so that I will get better.
