My new BFF


It started with a tickle in my throat on Tuesday.  Wednesday it was scratchy.  Thursday my voice started to go.  Today this nastiness has worked its way up into my sinuses and down into my chest.

When I was a kid, my mom would apply some menthol-based ointment to our chest and throat when we had these symptoms.  Then she’d wrap a piece of wool or wool sock around our neck to keep it warm.  I don’t remember if it worked but it felt good.  Maybe I should knit myself a neckwarmer and try this again.

One of my goals this month is to make a new straight knitting needle roll.  I need a piece of canvas or cotton duck for the outside of the roll and of course, I don’t have anything sturdy enough for my liking.  I was going to stop at Jo-Ann Fabric on my way home from work yesterday to buy some fabric.  It’s even on sale!  It’s always nice when one needs something and it’s on sale.  My head was pounding and I felt horrible so I just went home.

And knit.

Maybe I’ll feel better this evening and shop for some fabric.

  1. I thought you were going to let me make one for you….but then you could be waiting for several months….by all means….knit a neck warmer….or just use any old sock!
    Maybe you have the flu…it is going around up here. Hope you feel better!


  2. I still have the wool neck wrapper some place in my medicine cabinet. The wool wrapper I have used to be a doll blanket but it got washed and shrunk through use. It just fits a neck when you need it.
