aka... the stomach flu. although it has nothing to do with the flu, i can feel why people call it that. yes, that is correct, i have been a sick gal since sunday evening, the peak hitting monday evening.
i have begun to feel better, but to give you an idea of how unwell i have felt, the only needle work i have done since saturday is casting on for the 2nd man-sized Calmer sock and knitting two rows. (despite having to work at the store for 7 1/2 hours today)
and no, the lack of knitting cannot be attributed to the new issue of mental_floss hitting my mailbox.... but it is a good issue!
