Always look on the bright side

The advantages of being ill are minimal, unless you happen to be a knitter. Then it's all about how long you can knit for while watching TV, skolling bottles of cough medicine and taking pills for blocked sinuses. Oh, and honey-centered Butter Menthols. I love them.

Monday I finished up Dot's vest. It is adorable, isn't it? Less than two weeks and really easy. Best kind of knit. I don't have a photo of her in it, because that would require her to sit still. This rarely happens, unless flour is involved....

 As I'd finished her vest by 10:30am I started another of my Sherlock Holmes blanket squares. This one was called Goodge Corner, from "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle" and was great fun. Lots of twisted knit stitches, and it was a constantly complex pattern.

That was finished last night, however I did notice a mistake that made me drop a stitch down 43 rows, correct it, and come back up again. So what's on today's agenda?

Casting on 286 stitches. Good thing I'm still sick.
