News of the Day

I've been feeling pretty crummy.  
I was up sick almost all night last night, slept late this morning, and struggled through the day today.  It was like trying to work my way uphill in roller skates.  

When I'm feeling poopy, I want to do things that comfort me.  I couldn't curl up in bed with a book but I could, and did, do some reading, letter writing, and knitting.

Do you know about Ravelry?  It's knitting heaven:  An entire website of knitting patterns, project ideas and blogs.  I spent a lot of time there today.  If you're a knitter, you'll want to check it out too. is anther great site for knitters.  They have a sweater pattern generator and a knitting stitch reference worth bookmarking for frequent reference.

Crocheting makes me happy too, and Etsy is a great source of patterns.  One of my favourite vendors is  The patterns there are just plain fun.

This lego blanket from All Things Bright and Beautiful caught my eye too.  I know a few little boys who would just love this.

If you're not a knitter but love to make projects using knits, there are all sorts of fun ideas on Pinterest.  

I think this felted sweater blanket from Yellow Suitcases Studio is particularly beautiful

and these pillows from Centsational Girl look really snuggly.

Now it's time for me to find some pillows of my own. 
It's past my bedtime.
Goodnight everyone.
Sweet dreams.

I love all of that stuff - I wish I knew how to knit/sew!

Thank you Virna. I'm a little ragged at this end of the day but I do believe I'm on the mend. :) The lego blanket is very cool, isn't it? People are so creative!

Jenn, I'm constantly amazed by how talented people are. I figure, though, that the rest of us serve an important purpose too: We're here to admire them and cheer them on! :)
