I Swear I Took the Picture

Last Monday, after posting about the pending arrival of our new little, Joe and I headed off for a week of relaxation and sun in Mexico (or so we hoped for).

I figured since I was abandoning the blog, the Etsy Shop, and email in general for a whole week, I would have a great post planned when I got back.  It was to be called "The Anthology of a Scarf"  which would include a series of pictures.  Me knitting on the plane, on the beach, by the pool, etc.  I even thought that by then end of the week and all the down time, I would be able to have a second "Like a Lamb" wrap almost completely finished.

Hmm... how plans change.

Things started out just fine.  I took a picture while knitting on the plane.  I had about an inch completed and thought it would be a great intro to the series of pictures.

Then we got to Mexico.

Our first evening there featured a torrential downpour.  Water was leaking in hallways of our open- air resort.  There was almost no place to escape the dampness.

Next day- showers off and on, with a few planned activities to attend.  Then, about halfway through the day (keep in mind we haven't been here 24 hours yet), a slight tickle in my throat.

The next morning I awoke to a full range of fever, chills, aches, and an awful respiratory infection.   Later in the day we heard from my in-laws who were back home and diagnosed with Type A Influenza.  Yup, that fit the bill.

So, from here on out, between the storms and the sickness, not a lot was accomplished on the wrap.  I figured I would come home and share this dreadful story, along with the first picture of my knitting on the plane.  the post was then to be called "All I Have", in which I would explain that I only have one lousy picture for you.

So I sat at home, prepared to write, and opened my phone.

No picture.


I know I took it.  I know I wasn't quite loopy yet when I took it.  Checked all individual apps- nada.

So now we all must settle for this- a whole week of knitting, sitting before you as I type this post.  What I thought would be 15-18 repeats is a measly 4.  It's just sad.  

And if you're thinking I may finish soon, you're probably wrong.  Free minutes are devoted to sleeping- I gotta kick this thing!

  1. That is so sad! I hope you feel better soon :-(.

  2. Oh No! What a bummer!! Being sick on vacation sucks! Knitting while sick is dangerous! I picked up a project I was working on and proceeded to knit it in the wrong direction for a hour before I figured it out.
    Feel better soon!

  3. Get well soon! Being sick on vacation is the worst. Your wrap is looking great so far though!

  4. Oh no.....rest up! Get well you poor thing. Wish I could bring you some tea and soup...the knitting can wait. Thinking of you...

  5. Oh, no! That is just so sad! I hope you are feeling better now. Rest!

  6. I know you don't feel as if you accomplished much on vacation, but the new 'Like a Lamb' looks to be another beauty. Wondering if you would share what yarn you are working it in. Rest up and take care of yourself and the new little being to be;) If you think your knitting time is limited now - just wait until you have 2 wee folk underfoot -lol!!

  7. You poor old thing! Take it easy - we can wait for the lovely photos!

  8. :( Getting sick on vacation is the worst! I'm so sorry to hear that and hope you're fully recovered. Ugh.

    And I wonder what on earth happened to that photo?? So weird.
