Well, my luck ran out Saturday evening - son #1 began the fever, body aches, and cough associated with the flu. Bless is heart - he is miserable. It's such a big deal to miss school at his age, too. The missed lectures and make up work can seriously impact his grades. However, this can't be helped.
The weekend did have a few positive points. I finished my socks, the sunroom painting was completed, and our hometown team upset Kansas in the elite 8 of the NCAA tournament. This town is not known for it's college sports, so this is enormous around here.
About the socks, they are from Melissa Morgan-Oakes' book http://www.amazon.com/Toe-Up-2-at-Time-Melissa-Morgan-Oakes/dp/1603425330/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1301327424&sr=8-2 Toe Up 2 at a Time Socks. I much prefer knitting socks toe up and the two at a time method prevents the awful second sockitis!
