I’m sick. Have I already said that? I think I may have the flu. So, what do I do? I cast on a new project, a hat. My silly husband, several years ago I made him a cabled beanie type hat out of Lamb’s Pride worsted but since he doesn’t have a whole lot of hair up there he whined that it was itchy. Big baby!!!!!! Now, of course, he can’t find it, he probably gave it to someone on the street. He wears a stupid toboggan(?) from Wal-mart or somewhere. He doesn’t understand that is a slap in my face. Everyone who knows us knows I'm this huge knitter. It is like Ronald McDonald's children eating at Burger King. A GM worker driving a Toyota. How would he feel if I went to another church? (Those of you who don't know, my husband is a pastor.)

He doesn't like any frills so I'm just making him a simple ribbed beanie. Did I mention I'm sick? I thought about making it in an acrylic, but, I just can't bring myself to do it. Although, have you seen/touched some of the new acrylics the yarn stores are carrying? Quite impressive actually. I may use a double strand of some fingering weight I have. I'll keep you posted. I'm sick.

Mr. Sensitive Head is stopping by the store on the way home from working out to get me some chicken noodle soup and cheese. On the list I said the following:

  • Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup
  • 1/2 lb cheese from the deli (to go with my whine)
  • a Diet-Pepsi Max - If you really love me
  • a Diet-Pepsi - If you just love me

I'll let you know which it is. :) Mr. Itchy Scalp just called from the grocery, his first words were, "I really love you, but I can't find a Diet-Pepsi Max in the cold section. I didn't want to just get you a Diet-Pepsi and that be considered a reflection on my love for you." I told him I'd accept a plain ole Diet-Pepsi. I guess I'll forgive his prickly issues. He's a keeper.

I hope you are feeling better very soon and I am relieved to hear that at least you feel like knitting a little bit. I made Al a pair of wool socks and he said they were too warm. Then I made him cotton socks and they would not stay up and I should add that he wears a size 12, so I feel your hat pain. Please take care and I hope you have your chicken soup very soon.

Tim would be the same way, and that is why he has only received a guitar strap from me, lol!
They are pretty good when it comes to helping while being sick though :)
Hope you feel better soon!

There's just no pleasing some people, is there?

Well I hope you at least get to feeling better soon!

Hey, there, you can't be sick.... Take care of yourself. This knitting for husbands just doesn't work. I made a pair of alpaca socks for mine - size 13, mind you. He lost them! Really! and it's not like he goes to the gym or anything.

Feel better soon - from a fellow sufferer.

Enjoy the knitting process - then when it is done, enjoy the product!

As for the keeper - he'll love the product - as it is knit with love.

Again another post that's fun to read!

Hope the chicken soup works and that you enjoy your diet Pepsi.

That's a nice picture of Emma Belle and Sydney.

Awww how adorable!! Definitely a keeper. Even if he does have a sensitive head.

Suzanne said...

Yep, he's a keeper! Can you 'play' sick and get extra knitting time?

Peggy said...

It's all about the give and take isn't it?

Feel better soon.
