It's done and so am I

Thing 2 suggested that she needed a new sweater, despite inheriting the stripy hoody from her brother and wearing it. Fortunately I had a bag of Lion Brand big yarn that had been gifted to me at a knit day. I thought it might knit up into something fairly quickly, and it did.

This is an off-the-cuff top down raglan. I wish I'd made it smaller in diameter, but I was measuring the raglan seams off of another sweater. It's sort of a 1960's silhouette, and kind of a shrug. Anyhow, it keeps her warm around the house in the mornings.

And, of course, I have whatever is richocheting around the house. If my throat looked like it felt, I'd have a tennis ball-sized lump under there. Just sick. I know it will pass, but it's not a lot of fun to go through. And weirdly, about half of us have sick eyes -- red, swollen underneath, and goopy. Talk about fun times.

Thing 3 is walking normally, but really sick, Thing 4 is really sick but that isn't stopping her from waking me very early in the morning and crying because she's hungry. I think I like it when the fever makes them sleep all day!

Sweater is fantastic! Cold sounds horrible. I am so sorry it got you. I hope things don't grind to a halt. Lemme know if you need a big pot of chicken soup.

Love the sweater and she looks lovely in it. I hope you guys are all better soon; once they aren't sleeping anymore it's just best if they get better quickly. ; )

Off-the-cuff sweater? I am in awe. I barely do off-the-cuff scarves. It's cute! Good use of gift yarn, too.

I hope all Things are well and healthy soon.
