Well, things did go wrong. So there's that.
My allergies have just started and because of them, I'm coughing (which is scary enough in this time) and sniffling away a bit. (I do take OTC allergy pills but they are not always completely effective.) Long story short, I was asked to leave work yesterday. I had to call the office helpline and speak with a nurse who had to determine, via long distance call, if I could be in the office. Since allergy symptoms and Covid19 symptoms can be similar, I was asked to stay away until next week. I don't get sick leave/pay as a contract worker. So this is a blow financially (unless the company decides to pay during this extraordinary time - in which I will be pleasantly surprise if they do.) Anyway, I'm trying to be mindful throughout this situation. I'm making some knitting plans for the upcoming days. I'm still working on the capelet. I'm going to restart A Gentleman In Moscow (I ended up watching Dr. Strangelove instead last time. It was something.) I also want to do some spring cleaning or at the very least organize myself a tad. Hopefully clean home will = some peace of mind. I have yarn/books all over the place so organizing them should help clear some surfaces.
Odyssey Shawl, pattern by Joji Locatelli @jojilocat, free download as a 'give back to the knitting community'. Knitted using up the leftovers: top two colours Naturally Amuri merino/possum labels lost in the annals of time and the lighter bottom layer is the ongoing Mill End 8ply Pure Wool that has been knitted up in a variety of garments. A pack of yarn originally purchased and split with @dianamaryfecit I like the clarity of stitch definition using this yarn - still more skeins left to play with.
