I am feeling much better today, the gallon of water I drank yesterday must have helped :-}
I am focused on getting ready for Convo, which includes finishing a few tasks. I just uploaded a review on First Drop of Crimson by Jeaniene Frost, and have one more review to write today on Spellbent by Lucy A. Snyder. Then I have one more sample to finish knitting (which will leave one more to go) and will need to edit the patterns for Knit Picks. I plan to mail them out tomorrow or Thursday. The final sample and pattern can wait until we are back.

Part of getting ready for Convo includes getting ready for the week of recovery time afterward, so today I am making hamburger gravy, potatoes and green beans to have in the freezer as ready meals next week.

On the Otterwise front, I was excited to learn several people have chosen my patterns to knit for the Ravelympics! The Kiva Bag, the Aconite Shawl, the Equalizer Hat, Corydalis Cowl and Wild Cherry Bark Mitts are all popular choices :-} (Jaala did a lovely Corydalis Cowl in lettuce green Malabrigo)

I will be having my long-promised contest next week, too. I have two more patterns to load to the site, than I'll be set!

(The image up top is some non-work knitting I've been doing, a Miss Marple sock.)

So glad you're feeling better! With Convo on the horizon. . . how can it be any other way! :-)

wow, that cowl looks great in lettuce green! the final sign of a perfect design; looks good in any color (even in a black and white photo from the cheap printer).
