The best medicine

Being at home immediately made me feel so much better and day by day I've improved this week. The jet lag has not been fun but I'm finally starting to feel a little more human just in time for the weekend :o) I will not be wearing my shrug as the sleeves are still very much a work in progress as you can see here. Ah well, life just gets in the way of knitting some times and I have a shop bought back up!

It's just too glorious for words to be at home, managing a little knitting but mainly just resting and exhaling all the tension from the trip. Thank you for all your well wishes.

I'm hopeful I might get my beret finished for the Paris parade, here it is as it was on Monday when I caught up with missed events from Le Tour with the review programme. We've got people staying from tonight but I think this pattern will be simple enough for me to follow and still be sociable.

Comforts have also arrived by mail - waiting for me when I got back was this delicious yarn which is my prize draw Sockamania yarn! Yes, the last minute dash was worth it and I won my choice of a skein of yarn from Anni's lovely Etsy shop. I went for this wool/bamboo blend and I'm delighted with the feel and colour - what a fabulously zingy green.

Today my replacement cube arrived so if I can just track down that yarn it will soon be as if that awful week never was!

Happy weekend :o)

Ooh! lots of greens in your post today. Love it - green is one of my favorites. I am so glad you are feeling better...I remember how sick I was after my Spain holiday! Happy knitting and have a great weekend.
