I think I've caught a cold, AGAIN

Catch it! Don't let it get away!
My nose is running, and I can't keep up with it. It all started last night, when I became wheezy and my nose started dripping. Well, it's running now - gives the kitchen tap a run for its money! today, when the cold got worse, the first thought that ran through my mind was "Oh no! Chris must have shared my drink with his family when I wasn't looking!" No, seriously, that's what I thought. I think that's the Monk in me. I hate sharing food and drinks. If someone has had a drink out of my cup, they can have the rest of it. Just thinking about it makes me ill. Yuck! As my cousin said, "You may as well spit in my mouth". I think that's a fairly apt description of how I feel about sharing food, drinks and utensils. Chris doesn't understand it. That's ok. He can have my food and/or drink after it's been passed round the table. Eeeuw. So anyway, I asked him, and he said he hadn't so I couldn't have caught the cold from his sister-in-law. I must have done it all by myself, not that catching a cold is anything to be proud of. Any old idiot can do that.

Knitting and spinning
Not much is happening. I completed the OSW on the weekend, and it doesn't look like much in the photos. It's like a big black blob. I'll have to model it for you when I get around to it. When Chris saw it, he said, "Where's the rest of it?". It does look a little like that. It's like a mini cropped cardigan.

I spent some time pulling apart the silk caps I had dyed, and rolling them up into ready to spin rolls. Can you believe that this

turned into this?

On the weekend, I also started a stole. I am using the mohair blend that Emy sent me a few months ago. It's fairly hairy and has a couple of metallic strands mixed into it. It's really pretty. I am going to weave ribbons through it when I am done. It's being knitted sideways in a simple eyelet pattern with garter stitch. I have not yet decided whether I am going to make it a self-fringing piece. If it is long enough, I will. Otherwise I will just add the fringe separately.

Hmm.. I think I am going through a pink phase...

Lace Cotton Tee
I am so sorry, Jen. I thought I had sent you the photographs. Obviously not. I can't find the photos now, and the cotton tee is in the wash (can you tell that I wear it?). Anyway, I'll wash and iron it and take more pictures for you. I am so so so so sorry for the delay.
Now that is what I call a full out weekend! And you still had time for OSW! Now I'm really curious as to how your silk rolls will turn out. My guess is some light creamy pink very much like that mohair blend you knitting now? I'll just have to wait patiently for you to finish spinning it huh? *wait patiently. :)
nice job on the spinning! one day mine will look like that ;)

just realised the yarn isn't spun! the colours look so much like what you are knitting, will be interesting to see how it comes out. sorry about the double post there, don't know what happened!
