That I am still alive I mean. The cold was nasty, but only involved head and sinuses. Thanks to one of my Knit Night friends, I recovered nicely, after she introduced me to the miracle that is a Neti Pot. That little item cleaned out the sinuses and suddenly I could breath again.
Of course the recovery was not without disaster. When I returned to knitting, once I decided I would live, I continued with the Green Flowy Cardigan. After knitting about 2 and half rows and just getting to the end of the cable section, the knit stitches weren't where I needed them.
I was not in the mood or position to tink back two full rows. So I isolated the offending stitches on a cable needle, leaving the rest of the row on the two ends of the needle, with plenty of slack hanging. I was still so out of it, I didn't even take pictures of the mess. I had two little cable needles I keep next to my knitting chair so I just used those needles. I tinked back (unknit) the four problem stitches two rows. With the aid of another needle (can never have too many!) I untwisted the cable and then twisted it correctly and knit back up those four stitches.
But I did think it was best to lay low an extra day on that sweater.
