I know I'm unwell when...
....I'm not able to knit. Anyone who suffers from migraines will know that it is not just a headache. My normal meds didn't work, but fortunately a very nice doctor came out and stuck a needle in me. I wasn't convinced even then, because I've been so doped up on opiates in the past that I couldn't walk, but the pain wasn't reduced in the slightest. Fortunately it worked this time. Unfortunately I wasn't fit for work and I'm not able to go to my Wednesday knitting group.
As I'm now a member of a spinning BlogRing, thought I should put some spinning up. This, as the label states, is a merino/silk blend, purchased from the Scottish Fibres stall at Woolfest last June. Hard to tell from the pic, but it has a lovely sheen and a very soft hand (if that's the right term). It's probably going to be a Misty Garden scarf from Scarf Style , which is simple feather and fan.
In amongst the work and study, I've also been looking after my son, who has been really unwell with the 'flu and an ear infection - no matter how old he gets, I still hate to see him unwell. His girlfriend came to stay for a couple of days, and very nice she is, too. I'm not going to meddle, but would very happy if this relationship lasts, but early days yet. The cats, meanwhile, have been having a lazy time, as usual. Here's Athyr using my DH as a perching post. Usually both of them can be found there, but Isis was too quick off the mark. Got her later though - ...it's a cat's life!
