I've been having pretty serious sore neck for nearly three weeks, and it was getting worse. I was worried, but I thought my being stressed a bit was the cause. Now the major stressors had come and gone, my neck ache moved into my head and was pounding! And then came the fever of 101+.

Finally I got into see my doctor today, and she told me I had a heavy-duty strep throat and ear infection. She thought the neck ache was coming from those two major nasties. I surely hope so -- I'm really tired of this pain. Because of it I had very little knitting done in the last few weeks.

Yesterday afternoon after the fever was gone, I lied on my back and knitted with my handspun -- the back of dropshoulder vest.

It was a bit hard to knit at the beginning, but now I'm loving it. I've spun multi-colored locks just randomly, so I can't predict the order of the colors or how the color blocks would look.

I am mixing in the greens here and there... Brighter pink to come. I'm a bit anxious to see a bigger knitted piece.

Oh, yeah. Girls came over last Friday, and I did finish (finally) my Bunny Socks. Pictures next time!

What a trouper -- knitting after getting a real dx. I hope you're also sleeping and drinking lots of fluids, etc.
