Tumbling off the blog-wagon

It hardly seems possible that more than an entire week has elapsed since I last posted. Nothing specific precipitated this lapse. No malaise, no emergencies -- just a dash more than usual of mundane happenstances that litter the day to keep me completely occupied and away from the blogosphere. Admittedly, I have been trying to get a bit more done in lab since I will be going on a mini-vacation at the end of next week. At this time seven days hence, I will be joining the legions of knitters, spinners, weavers, and other fiber-addicts in making the pilgrimage to Rhinebeck. I would be beside myself with excitement had I not managed to come down with some odd strain of cold/stomach virus a few days ago. Now I’m preoccupied with fretting over all the things I would like to get done before I leave. Besides list of work-related things, there is also that knitting-related item known as the Rhinebeck sweater. To wit, Cyd.

A sick day wouldn’t be a sick day if one wasn’t actually ill but it’s still so indescribably frustrating to have hours and hours of potential knitting time on my hands just when I have no ability to do much else besides sleep. So, the front of Cyd has been growing very slowly. With just a week to go, perhaps Cyd will just have to be at the festival in spirit… However, is anyone else going to be there in person?

Cyd looks really beautiful, by the way! I love the tweedy colors, the argyle, it's so romantic.
