Pushing the Flu Away

The Flu attacked me last week and shut me down to doing nothing much.
I am trying to get my head back in good form. 
Knitting and drawing always does the trick.

but I am using Malabrigo kettle dyed pure superwash merino wool because my favorite local yarn store has had a run of the Madelinetosh. River Colors owner, Erika guided me towards a lovely plum fingerling weight.

It also helps to be listening to a good book when one is not feeling well. (or otherwise)

Right now I am listening to The Drunken Botanist by Amy Stewart
and 
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

The first one is to educate me, the 2nd is to get my mind set on Scotland...
