The silver lining of being sick? I did make some good headway on my Spring Shrug. I've completed one sleeve and am cruising through the back, almost halfway!
The knitted fabric is a little womply, but hopefully some blocking will take care of that. The first part (beginning of sleeve) was a bit tricky and fiddly, but once I completed 3-4 inches of knitting it got a lot easier. Or maybe I just got over my fear that lace weight yarn was fragile? It's amazingly tough for such a dainty thing. Kinda' like snowdrops.
Another plus, I had the excuse to lay in bed and indulge in one of my all time favorite movies:
That being said, I was able to peruse the garden on my way to the hen house yesterday. That in itself felt very productive! I snapped a few pictures of the early spring bulbs to share and as a note to myself for the fall season. I do so like to plant bulbs in the fall. A panacea for the upcoming long, dark Winter, knowing that promise is buried in the ground. These pictures will hopefully act as a map later when I try to find some places to stash hope!
