Down but not out

It’s official. I’m quite sick. It’s odd knowing you’re tired have no energy, and a slight cough to “mild bronchitis”. Knitting was hard the week between Christmas and New Year’s. Well everything was hard to do other than sleep. I’m on the mend now and slowly getting my knitting mojo back. So much so I actually […]
