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.
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!
