Two Finished Objects!!!

Uggg... *sniff*....blah....*cough*

That's how I've felt for the past four days. I have been down with the flu. I know it's the flu because I have never been this sick for this long in my whole life. I literally couldn't get out of bed to make myself soup or get myself anything. Several of the days were a NyQuil induced blur where I was more asleep than awake which was a blessing. Being awake was torture.

Thankfully, it's on it's way out. I'm a functioning human being once again. That's a really nice feeling.

Right before I got sick I had a post in mind to show you not one, but two FO that I finished on the same day! The first being the Mountain Colors Bearfoot socks I was working on...I'm very happy with how they turned out. There's nothing like adding another pair of socks to the collection in time to actually wear them for part of the season!

Next, as you may have guessed, is the Tangled Yoke Cardigan. It's is 99.99% complete. The only thing it's missing is buttons. It just doesn't look quite right from the front without the buttons to hold it closed so I'll show some other pictures.
I'm so excited with how it turned out. I may actually leave the apartment today to go get some buttons!

The cardigan is beautiful and looking for buttons will help you feel even better. It's true. I'm not a doctor but I watch them on TV. LOL!

And wear your socks while you're out!

Flu got me too. Still has me as a matter of fact.
The sweater look fab from the back. and it is indeed a wonderful thing to have finished socks while we still need them. Hopefully we won't for much longer.

Ack!! I have the flu, too - it all started Saturday night, and I haven't left the condo since. Totally feel your pain. Anyways, the cardigan is fab. Can't wait to see what buttons you pick out.

Ugh - feel better soon! I've managed to miss the flu this season (knock on wood) and I'm hoping it doesn't catch up with me.

Your tangled yoke is beautiful on you! Such a great fit!
