Work Impeded by Sick Kid

We are on Day 2 of The Little Emperor staying home from school sick. Wednesday after school, he told me that he hadn't felt like eating at lunch. At bedtime I thought he felt a little warm. Thursday a.m. Mr SABLE took L.E's temperature and it was 99.9 in the armpit. That translates to about 100.9 oral temp. Temperatures tend to be lowest right after waking up, so that didn't bode well. He had a very low energy day yesterday, just lying on the couch watching episodes of Curious George I had taped from PBS. And wanting me near. Today, he seems somewhat better, but I'd rather he takes another low-energy day to rest. So, nothing that required continuous thought by me got done yesterday. And he still wants constant interaction, so another day where I can't string two complex thoughts together.

Knitting News
Last night, I did manage to get the neckline and one sleeve done on my Dulaan Pullover.

I think it'll pretty cute when it gets done. A good blocking will help some of the funny tension around the upper section, where I switched from back and forth to circular knitting and then the collar pick-up. I think I'll make a hat and mittens to coordinate.

That's one beautiful sweater! Poor baby, hope he feels better.

Hope LE feels better soon-poor guy! The sweater is adorable!

Hope Little E feels better! Poor guy.

The sweater is looking great!

Ugh. It's never fun when they're sick (although it's nice to have that cuddle time because you know as he gets older he won't even want to do that when he's sick!)

I like the orange on the collar! I stand corrected--that color "ties it up" nicely!

Oh I hope LE gets better soon. Give him lots of chocolate :D

The sweater is looking very cute.

I like the orange at the collar. I like that sweater a lot more than I thought I would initially - it's been interesting seeing it come together.

Hope the LE is back to feeling well. Sick children are exhausting.

Oh, sorry to hear your little guy is under the weather. Mothers are nothing if they aren't flexible, something I have to really remind myself of when my school child is sick and all schedules are thrown out the window....though, I do feel fortunate to be able to drop everything else and give him the tlc he needs... My kids love Curious George, too!

I hope the sick kid gets better quick! Being sick is no fun.

That sweater is adorable. I love the bright colors and the squares on their sides. Duh. Diamonds. Diamond pattern.
