On Deck

StockingSo, middle of Monday night/early Tuesday morning I realize that my eye is glued shut. Being a good elementary school teacher  recognize Pink Eye and know that I will be banished from school. At 3am I drove to school, got ready for the sub, and then drove back home. By mid-afternoon on Tuesday I had the pink eye diagnosis and was told not to go to school on Wednesday. By the end of  Tuesday I had the heel turned on Bunny’s stocking and the sleeves set into his sweater!

Wednesday I felt fine early on and got all the wrapping done for the Nursery Teachers gifts and went to get my hair cut. After that I started feeling terrible… By then end of Wednesday I had a bunch of gifts wrapped, had finished a mystery story, and had a diagnosis of strep. Good thing for antibiotics!

The other thing I did while not teaching was work in getting my cruise knitting list in order. Eleven days on the high seas should provide plenty of knitting time!

1. Hat for mom

2. Hat for dad

3. Bee set for baby B (bee-striped socks and hat and a bib with a bee)

Being optimistic I would like to take something else as well. I have some (ok, perhaps more than some) sock yarn so I’m thinking I will take it and some sock pattern. I’m ready to try something more than a stockinette sock, so… What’s your favorite? What sock pattern should I take along?


  1. Ah, Pink Eye, we have had that around this house a couple of times. It is terribly contagious and it just appears out of nowhere.

    I hope you get feeling better soon from both the Pink eye and the Strep.

    Thank you for stopping by my bloggy 🙂

  2. Is it a requirement that teachers get sick, especially right before Christmas? I’m hoping that getting sick now will mean I will be healthy for the holidays…I’m an optimist that way.

    Great work on the knitting! I finished the stocking for my wee girl, three scarves for grandma, mom, and sis…and now I don’t want to knit anymore. Can’t even convince myself to do a Mason Dixon dishcloth. And the sweater that has waited 3 years…still not done! Yikes!
