Mostly Down

I got knocked down by another UTI and so have been functioning from my bed!
I am most days used to the MS and balance my activities and limitations so that I do pretty well.
One more plate to balance just tips the whole show right over.
As if that wasn't enough, I woke up with conjunctivitis in both eyes so that did a number on my already blurry vision! 
I have a regular parade of visitors and I love it!
If someone is already on the bed, others wait their turn on the dresser, on the rug by my bed or on the floor by the sliding glass door. 
I have wanted to learn how to do the linen stitch since it resembles weaving.
I had a learning curve-see the bottom?  Yeah, not so good.
I found the rhythm on the upper portion but I found that a dishcloth would still require garter rows on the sides so that it wouldn't curl on the edges.
I ripped it out and made it right-it's nice when and idea is realized.
(While in bed, I 'think' a whole project done-I plan, execute, trouble-shoot and complete it.
Then tweak it.  It helps pass the time and gives me ideas to carry out in the future. 
I have had fun making a pile of dishcloths!
A group of us that read each other's blogs are taking part in a dishcloth swap.
It's been a good incentive to try new patterns. 
I received my dishcloth package of goodies ...it's so nice to get a package in the mail!
Thank you Kathy B!

  1. The only good part of being sick is the cat-companionship! They like it when their people hold still all day... <3

  3. I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. Hope this episode passes quickly.

    The dishcloths all turned out very nice. I guess that is one small positive to having a quiet day.
