Coming Up for Air

Crafting content has been put on an unfortunate hold as I deal with this at work. If you’ve ever wondered what an epidemiologist does, this is a doozy of an example.

No pictures yet, but my attempt at knitting the latest baby bootie in the round is a success! I’ve decided that a button for the ankle strap is just a little too risky for my taste. Um, would you want to be the knitter who introduced a potential choking hazard to your friend’s baby? So I’m going to try making an i-cord that’s long enough to tie into a bow instead.

My mother gave up on waiting for her Scholar Collar. She found an acceptable substitute for herself at an REI sale – $2 for a 100% silk knit scarf! Sorry, Mom, that I didn’t finish your scarf in a reasonable time, but I think you scored a major deal in the end.

Keeping checking back for my next gasp of fresh air! Send good thoughts to the ill people in this outbreak for a quick and healthy recovery.

One thought on “Coming Up for Air

  1. Your job sounds fun, fun. My husband had a bout with e-coli while working on a boat in the Prince William Sound, AK. (I just typed in some of the tests he had, but realizing that well, it’s TOO MUCH INFO for this comment – and he’d kill me!) It was pretty awful for him, however he was fortunate enough to be close enough to Juneau to get medical help – and off the boat! I’ll send get well vibes to those affected. Ugh! And thank-you vibes to all those that work in the field of helping others through nasty body traumas.

    REI sale, eh? Thanks for the tip!
