Hello again everyone. I have been out of the loop since Tuesday night. I was "hit" with a bad virus early Wednesday morning. By Wed evening I was in the hospital. I was very dehidrated. They checked for food poisioning and lots of other things. It turns out it was just viral. I also had the beginnings of a UTI. I was given 3 bags of fluids and a bag of antibiotics. I only had to stay Wednesday night. I got to come home last night (Thurs) at about 8 pm. I feel better, but I am still very weak. I have to be on a very strict bland diet for 4-5 days and do nothing but rest. We were supposed to be going out of town Saturday for a couple days to celebrate my husbands grandparents 50th anniversary and Christmas. So unfortunatley... we will have to miss that. I'm so sorry about not responding to the PMs I have. I just had no idea which way was up for the last few days. Hopefully, I will be back to normal soon.

MrsP... I will PM you now about the blanket.

I would appreciate everyones prayers for me to get back to normal quickly. I have a 19 month old that is ready to have lots of mommy lovin'.

Thanks so much.

Crayola or Crayons whatever you want to call it is going in the mail today. The delivery confirmation number is 0103 8555 7495 4124 6605. I would have had it in the mail sooner but the PO down here are always crazy and this time of year is even worse. So I printed the label ahead of time and just have to drop it off now. I'm really sorry about all of this.

Please feel better, Kelly! I am sorry that you all have to miss out on a planned trip like that.

Holly great site... I've always knitted it in like Amy shows with both strands but that doesn't work when you have 2 different colors... and I agree don't stress about the blankets everyone, we will get them done honestly I think everyone has done an amazing job with them! And I think it's awesome that so much time if being devoted when everyone is so busy....

Camo looks cute Lisa...

Erica, glad you are not feeling sick still and it's almost over, but hapy birthday! Hope you had a great one....

And thank you both Erica and Holly for keeping it moving... Erica you can hold on to the needles if you want to start a new blanket sometime, it doesn't have to be anytime soon, in fact please don't make it anytime soon ( )....

Wow Sandy you have been busy! Wish I could see it, it sounds like it will be great! Oh and we LOVE Chick-Fil-A.... You know the Chick-Fil-A Sauce, that's somewhat new... then guy that owns the restaurants where I grew up came up with it...

Amanda, I don't like splitty yarn at all! I won't use Microspun anymore cuz it's just too splitty for me.... I heard on here once (I think it was RedHeadedRacheal) that finer yarn is great cuz you get more time to knit it, so it last longer and makes it cheaper for you... I hadn't thought about it like that before she said it and just thought about that when I read your post.

Kelly so sorry you are so sick, that's really hard with a little one! Get lots of rest. I'm praying... And I'm glad that you are feeling a little better.

I understand about the PO blkirback... I try my best NOT to go there... I use the automated one or online as much as I can.... PO with 3 young kids... I think they prefer me not to go there too!

We are getting moved in.... it's slow going, bet we are getting there.

Happy Birthday, Erica!!

Kelly, that sucks. I really hope you feel better soon!!

I have to go to the post office tomorrow morning. I am hoping that it won't be too scary. It's a small PO in a small town...maybe it won't be toooo bad. Maybe. I'm certainly not going to attempt the one downtown--that's a nightmare on a good day!

Sandy, I hope it slows down soon!!!

Hi Everyone!!

Kelly, I am so sorry that you are feeling bad!! I hope you feel better soon!! I know it is so hard to be that sick when you have a little one at home!!

Dawn, you are right - the yarn does make it so that I get to enjoy it that much longer, which would be great if it wasn't a Christmas present!! :-) My mom has a friend who is a big knitter and she told her that alot of knitters are doing lace projects since they are more complicated and last longer!

I have been avoiding the post office like the plague! I am really hoping I can spend the rest of the holiday season without having to go there! I don't envy anyone a trip there!

Oh, I almost forgot! I hope you had a great Birthday, Erica!!

I am leaving for my Mom's house tomorrow. But, I will still have internet access, so no worries!! :-)

Yeah, I avoid several things during this time of the year and the PO is one of them! I am actually waiting for a package right now of Malabrigo Silky Merino. I bought some additional skeins to match some that I got in a swap, but I have no idea when I will get them because of the holidays and the mail being backed up.

Thanks again to all of you who wished me happy birthday.
