That's me sniffling away since dh gave me his heinous virus. I've got it much more mildly than he did, but then that's typical. I have a kick-ass immune system, and his immune system is about as strong as an hour old kitten. So I'm just sniffling a lot, raw throat from that lovely post-nasal drip, and running a low fever. I'll live.

I started another pair of socks, the Bellatrix pattern from July's Socktopia. It's a pretty quick knit so far. I have four more pattern repeats to go before I get to the heel, but I've been distracted trying to finish my Forest Canopy Shawl. I have 8 1/2 rows to go. I should be able to finish it today if I just sit down and do it. I'd love to have it blocked before the FiberArts club meeting tomorrow; however, I also need to clean the house and get to the grocery store before then, so maybe I won't get it done and blocked, especially if I can't get myself off the computer.

The Mystery Stole yarn still hasn't arrived. I'm hoping for today or tomorrow. It only has to come from one state over. Even though I chose the cheap shipping option, I wouldn't think it would take too long. I picked up beads for it yesterday. I hope they'll look good. I had trouble finding the 8/0 beads locally; there just weren't many choices in color. I'll try the ones I got, and if I hate them, I'll just rip back and do it without beads.
