healing qualities and should help to see off the flu. Fingers crossed it's already started its magic and I'm on the mend!
I wasn't exactly feeling great before I got the lurgy. I've been reading a book on mindfulness, recommended for carving out peace in the hectic lives we lead. Ironically while in Wales mindful I was not... I walked smack into a plate glass window at full force, thinking the conservatory door was open when in fact it was very definitely closed. OUCH, that hurt almost as much as the flu, leaving head, nose and cheek on one side considerably worse for wear.
So all in all I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself right now, sitting by the fire with a large mug of honey and lemon tea swaddled in my new shawl, trying to feel better by writing my blog.
Don't think I've shown you this one yet, I finished it in Wales and the colours remind me of the saffron robes of Buddhist monks. I'm enjoying wearing it a lot, the hot colours warm me up almost as much as the gorgeously luxurious MadelineTosh merino I used to knit it.
It's another shawl in my Croissant series for my class on Knit France. It proved to be a perfect example of necessity being the mother of invention as I ran out of the one hank of red yarn which should have completed that crescent and instead had to start the striped border sooner than intended. However, I'm pretty pleased with the result. What do you think?
