Sick and Tired.....

I somehow managed to catch a "bugg" last week.....we are blaming it on "the Carrier" aka Richard. He was sick first and I really thought I had snuck by...but after the denist trip with the Sea Bee I started getting a runny nose.....scratchy eyes......headache......body ache.......and just tired.......so now that the week has come and gone I seem to be almost back to normal.....or what I happen to live as Normal.

Just because I was down didn't mean I wasn't knitting though......I managed to finish up a little something for 'the basket'......

... 'the basket' is just that.....a basket that lives in my living room. Whenever the notion hits me and I want to try something different .....whether it is the design......the yarn....the stitch pattern......or just something new to try........I use 'the basket' as my excuse to do it. When family come to visit they know that they have 'the basket' to go through....just incase there is something that needs to follow them home. Well....I had noticed that 'the basket' was short of baby things......so when I came across this pattern I knew I needed to try it ........

I used Simply Soft Yarn for both and found a nice little wooden button to finish it off.

This is a good basic pattern that will work up in all sorts of fun colorways in the future. Just the type of pattern I love to come back to......just enough interest to keep me going and still so very simple to follow.
