What could I possibly have to complain about on a beautiful day like today? Maybe I could start where I left off yesterday: wheezing, coughing, dripping. I called the doctor's office first chance I had and got a morning appointment. Bronchitis was the diagnosis although I half thought it could have been pneumonia, the way my chest was rattling. Never without my knitting, I worked on this hat while I waited an hour for the physician's assistant.
I used some Anny Blatt 'Berger' wool that I rescued from the sale bin at Right off the Sheep. It feels great to use up yarn from my stash. It took about 100 yards on size 6 needles, but remember that I knit loosely. Your results may vary.
Armed with several prescriptions, I headed over to Costco where I discovered that my old prescription plan had expired and since I hadn't been sick in TWO years, this vital information had slipped my mind. I paid cash for my prescriptions, came home, straightened out the coverage issue and returned to Costco to get my refund. And this is my 'medicine stash':
And I still need another inhaler. After pay day.
I did take advantage of the sunny day to take some photos of my latest projects.
The Possum Scarf:
And the Glitz Scarf that I think is destined for a charity auction in Bay Harbor later this year:
The Mint Green Rose Hill Hat I finished a week or so ago:
And finally, the Navy Button Hat with is missing something fairly obvious:
Yes! It's missing the button. That's where you come in. I can't decide which button to use. It gets sewn on the left side of the hat, where the band overlaps (the right side in this picture). Here are the choices (so far):
#1 Briar Rose Ceramic
#2 Briar Rose Ceramic
#3 Mystery Ceramic
#6 Patty Kelly Ceramic
Please help me out by choosing the button you think will look best on my hat and leave a comment. Here's an incentive........on Wednesday, 3/10, at 8 PM EST, I will see which button has the most votes and select one person who voted for it to receive some lovely yarn. I haven't decided just which yarn it will be but it will be enough to make a hat of your own! Tomorrow's my birthday and provided I'm not confined to my bed -- I'll choose the yarn then and post a picture to entice you!
