doing what Jackie does

Well, I officially feel like reheated doggie doo!

Yup – I think I have the flu. I’ve been fortunate enough to have escaped Mr. Influenza for the past 4 years, but I think I owe this bout to dear old hubby!

He was sniffling and congested all last week, and I told him that, in order for him to feel better, he had to give his sickies to someone else. Next time, I will be sure to specify who NOT to give it to!

Anyway – I decided to crochet some squares for a friend’s Afghan last night, but I’m not sure they are gift-worthy. Again, I can attribute that to this flu!

I was hoping to finish them this weekend and spend more time on my mom’s shawl. It’s a surprise gift for her, that I’m sure she’ll love. I just hope I get it finished while it’s still cold enough to wear!

I decided to make it with Homespun yarn from Lion Brand. It’s a very pretty color called RANCH. Odd name, cuz it looks more like Desert to me, LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚

your thoughts?
