Spring Scarf

I've been a bad blogger this past week. I have been so tired at night that I just got the basics done. I had a cold a couple of weeks ago and thought I was done. DH got sick last week. He struggled to work several days then finally went to the doctor and he had bronchitis, pneumonia in one lung, an ear infection, sinus infection and pink eye. He's been on medication for a week now and is doing much better.

Last Sunday I woke up with a sore throat and aches and chills. Monday the aches and chills were gone, but I developed laryngitis and pretty much had that all week. I drug myself to work everyday (where is my award for that?), but did leave early one day and came home and slept for 2 hours. Thankfully, I am much better and everyone doesn't cringe when I try to talk. I am sick & tired of being sick & tired!

I did very little knitting this week, but did manage to finish the Textured Diagonal Scarf for my daughter this weekend. I'm a little late for winter, but this is made from Katia Bamboo (bamboo & cotton) and should be good for spring too. At least the color says spring.

I've started the Cropped Raglan Sweater using Noro Silk Garden, and so far I love knitting this. Very easy, but the yarn gives it enough interest.

This afternoon it is beautiful and I sat on the deck for awhile with my face in the sun and it felt so good. Got to help, right?

I hope you continue to feel much better. I love the scarf and can't wait to see the sweater--the colors are so nice.
