Romantic Shrug is Done

I finally finished my shrug today. It took a lot longer than I expected it to take me. Or me to get it done, more like it... Well, I do have to say that I did the second whole half (and started on the first sleeve, too!) wrong. I had to rip it all out and after Mimi sent me some pictures I said 'Ooooh. Duuuuh.' :P I will take some better pictures of it on me. I haven't been feeling well at all the last three days. I got some kind of virus. I didn't even do my hair today. Oh, forgot to say you can purchase a copy of your own pattern on Mimi's site! I would put a link in to her Ravelry page, but something weird is up with Ravelry tonight.

Thursday I had a horrible headache all day. (Well I didn't think anything of it, except it was probably bad allergies--since I had a headache all week.) Well then Friday I woke up and I was SO tired all day, and really out of it. Finally by the time my husband got home from work I told myself I was sick. I was in bed the rest of the day. Yesterday and today, I was a little better. I hope I am a lot better tomorrow; because there is a doctor's appointment I HAVE to go to. I already rescheduled it once; and went last week on Tuesday, but it was the wrong day--wrong week, even. (Ugh...) So I have to go tomorrow.
Then when I get back home I can crawl back into bed if I still feel sick. :P
My husband made me chicken noodle soup today. He's so sweet. I was going to make another kind of soup. But he said 'What about chicken noodle soup?' I said, 'ooookaaay.' It was probably better, anyway. (The way he makes it is always good.) :) Well, stay tuned for more pictures.

Your shrug looks great! After ripping all that out I can assure you I would have given up. Great job.

I hope you get to feeling better soon and that you didn't give me your crazy virus through blog land! lol Just kidding, rest up and take care.

Oh...I hope you are really feeling better Tina. It might help to know what brought you down, if it was a virus or something else.

Yay for finishing your romantic shrug! Lovely picture - it looks so fresh and dainty in white :)

Well my husband was home sick one day last week (the day I took the picture of the road runner). I told him he must have given me his sickness. But then he felt like he was getting all the same symptoms as me, yesterday. Who knows where I got it. :P It was probably a virus, though. (Not contagious through blog land ;P)

Thank you, RusticOkie and Mimi.
