My busyness last week came back to bite me this week, as Wednesday in the wee hours I was stricken with a cold -- the coughing, sneezing, barking kind.  I rested much of Wednesday in bed, but had enough presence of mind to knit in between naps, and thus got a good handle on the last of the Christmas knitting.

Thursday I managed to work in The Shop...and finish a Christmas Cowl.

Friday...trying to conserve energy, I nonetheless managed lunch (soup) with a friend (her treat; we even drove to the Whistle Stop, which is usually an easy walk)...and following  lunch my afternoon nap, I got some sewing done.

One project finished:

The Annual Christmas Boxer Shorts

Another underway

Yesterday...another friend, another soup lunch...and back for more napping and knitting.  The first sock of the Second Wild Pair is now finished, and the second is cast on...

Yarn: ONline Supersock 4-fache Neon-Color
Colour #01717

The "other sewing project" was completed...

And last night I even had enough energy to print off Clue 4 of the Grand Illusion Mystery, and to make a start at the units for Clue 3:

Stack of 10 units, and more strips ready to go

More knitting.

More napping.

And a bit of a tour around Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday to see what others are up to while I count down to Christmas...

While over all, Miss Pookie supervises...

What?  You mean you're gonna use this fabric?

Naps are good. I spent one day with a whole lot of zzzzz's happening. Thankfully only the one day and we are back doing pre season prep! Have a blessed holiday!
