Yesterday, Dave decided that we'd take a little road trip to his cottage to help his uncle build a new shed.
The weather was beautiful, so despite the fact that I really wanted to stay home, I tagged along. I took Zetor with me because I knew I was only a few repeats away from finishing it.
Despite Dave's protestations (he doesn't like fibre "fluffies" in his pristine car) I knit all the way there. Then I camped out on the back porch of the cottage and while the boys were building, I was knitting.
And lo and behold Zetor is done!
I apologize for the EXTREMELY crappy picture - but I wanted to prove that I did indeed cast off. As you can see, the yellow is almost the same colour of my pine floors, but I have no energy to go upstairs and get a sheet for better contrast.
Why do I have no energy? Well all that fresh cottage air did something to my cold. It's like all those cold germie got a breath of that fine Lake Erie wind, and decided to have an orgy and multiply! Oh, and on top of it - I'm sunburned!
By the time Dave and I got home, I was ready to find a hole to curl up and die in. I haven't had a cold this bad in a very, very, very long time. It's so bad, I actually slept on the couch last night so I wouldn't keep Dave awake with my coughing. Normally I'd make HIM sleep on the couch - because I LOVE my bed - but I knew I wasn't going to be sleeping anyway.
I did manage to sneak in an hour or two between the coughing, hacking, and spilling out a lung on the living room floor.
We took a quick walk to the drug store this morning and stocked up on NyQuil and Neo Citron, so I have a feeling I'll be catching up on my sleep very soon. And besides, there is a very handsome boy waiting in the bed for me:... and you thought it was Dave!
***Proper pictures of Zetor will come once my cold abates, and Zetor gets re-dyed (too much pine yellow for my taste) and blocked. Stay tuned.
