I hadn’t touched my knitting since I came down with this nasty flu bug. I was far more interested in just sleeping than knitting, and far too busy coughing to do either.
The fever has finally broken and I am starting to feel a little stronger. Last night I picked up the needles and worked on my current WIP for a little while. My fingers felt very clumsy and awkward at first but I managed to knit a few rounds. It was just stockinette stitch so no real mental involvement was needed and after a couple of rounds my fingers remembered what to do.
It’s kind of funny, I’ve been in this hotel room all week sick with the flu which seems like it would have been perfect for some extended knitting time but I wasn’t able to do so. Spending even a short while knitting last night made me feel like I was a bit back to normal again even though I wasn’t able to continue for long due to the hands and arms cramping up.
It’s kind of funny the things we get in the habit of doing. For me it’s normal that if I am sitting around I am knitting. Not doing so feels strange and out of place.
Now if a flu strain comes along that enjoys knitting maybe we wouldn’t mind catching that one. :mrgreen:
