Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering Gods grace in its various forms.

Sick Puppies

Whew...we've all been sick puppies around here this week. I've been fighting the flu bug I caught from somewhere and now LD has it. He hasn't been sick other than a few runny noses so we had our first night of the toddler flu last night. He started the night off with tossing up his supper and refusing all liquids and medicine droppers. I finally managed to get him to drink a little and get a little medicine into him. He was so hot and we were so worried. We put him to bed and ended up waking up with him several times and I ended up snuggling him up in our chair. He developed a horrible phlemgy cough but the good news is the fever broke this morning. I called the Dr this morning to ask what else I should do and what I should watch for and she said I was doing the right thing! (Wow...who da thunk???) Anyway, he drank a little of his milk then had two cups of watered down juice and a piece of toast - yahoo! I'm getting ready to fix him something for lunch and I hope he's ready to eat. He's been a little perkier the last hour or so. In the meantime, I'm doped up on OTC cold meds trying to beat this thing...oh, if only I could breathe from my nose!

I managed to finish the Noro Purse and also started and finished an eyeglass case. I just need to get a wooden button for it and then it's done, too. I decided to join a dishcloth of the week group on Ravelry and have started the "Be My Dishcloth" pattern. It's fun! I don't know if I'll be able to keep up with all the patterns because of my current felting obsession! I've got a good 3" done on it though! The worst part was the first K1, P1 row after casting on. I always cast on too tight and have to fight the yarn on the first row. Here's a peek at the purse and eyeglass case:

My next purse will be using two strands of Cascade 220 in a lovely aqua green color. I'm not sure if I'm going to use the same purse pattern or if I'll try a different one. I also have 4 skeins of Patons SWS in Natural Geranium that I would like to use for a purse. It's a really beautiful colorway. I'm going to try to finish the dishcloth first before I cast on for a purse. That's the plan, anyway! I also have a skein of Lion Brank Wool-Ease Thick & Quick to knit up a roll brim hat for my wonderful hubby. I'd like to have it finished in the next couple of weeks so he can wear it!

So much yarn and so little time!

Well, I must be's lunch time for LD and I'm curious to see what his appetite will be.

Ciao and Happy Knitting!
