Well, I put up a valiant struggle and got sick anyway. My throat hurts, my head hurts, and I generally feel like a big pile of crap. I'm sure I will be fine in time for work on Monday. Grrr.

I will get plenty of knitting time, though. Ryan went over to a friends' house for a "winter BBQ" so I will be on the sofa with HoJo most of the day, I think.

Of course, if I were one-dimensional and only had one arm, I could just sew this sucker up and wear it now!

When I finally finish HoJo and wear it for the first time, I will dedicate that wearing to Wendy Johnson. Wendy patiently answered my fair isle questions via email, and I sat down tonight and got through all the armhole decreases and the more difficult of the three charts. Now it's just more of the easy chart, some ribbing, and I can start the whole process again on the back! Here's the progress so far.

In other news, Ryan's been sick all week with a nasty cold virus, and I think I might be getting it now. Damn! Just in time for a busy day at work tomorrow to feel it descend over me, and then let it totally kill me over the weekend. I think I'll try the Zicam I bought a while ago, and get some Vitamin C and echinacea in me. Wish me luck!
