Feeling better, a bit

I am slowly recovering from my chest and sinus infection. Last week I was on antibiotic tablets, but I wasn’t improving, so Monday morning my Dad drove us to the Drs, as he was worried that I was too sick to drive. The Dr was glad I had came in when I did, and next thing I was in the treatment room, for an antibiotic injection, a steroid injection, and a stint on the nebuliser for asthma as well.

On monday night I started to feel better, which was great! Tuesday was another antibiotic injection, and another stint on the nebuliser. Today was just an antibiotic injection, hopefully the last. All the injections were in the buttock muscle, so it can be sore to sit down, and I have a nice collection of bruises just under the waistband of my jeans!

I started the Girl’s All-in-One Sleeveless Top just before I caught ther cold that led to the chest and sinus infection, so I have been working on it for almost 3 weeks. It has been slow progress as I didn’t feel up to knitting, and with Squeak recovering from the cold, I pretty much ignored knitting and enjoyed quiet time with Squeak.

It is a horrible colour to take a photo of, but a beautiful colour on Squeak, I’m very excited for this to be finished for her to wear.

I tried to reduce the brightness and glare so you can get a true idea of the yoke, It is gorgeous. I love tops knitted with a one-piece yoke. Now that Squeak is in toddler sizes, there is a lot less knitting patterns that take my fancy.  I tended to only buy patterns for babies, but now I am running out of choices.

It is likely I will have this finished within a week or two, then onto pyjamas for Squeak. I was planning long pyjamas made of printed cotton as the weather is warming up, but Squeak has developed a habit of sleeping on her front, and kicking off all her blankets. If this continues I want her to keep wearing the flannels until the weather changes to be more summery and milder at night, as it keeps her that little bit warmer, which means less likely to wake up in the night wanting Mummy or Daddy to find the blanket for her to snuggle, for her then to kick the blanket off within an hour. At the moment she is happily warm and comfy with just the flannel pyjamas, but I really want the better fit of the elastic in the cuffs of the legs and sleeves, and it is a daily struggle to do up the buttons on the pyjama shirt. Hopefully I can start on them by the weekend, but it might just be wishful thinking!

Lots of love,
