I wrote in my last post about my latest knitting project. A week on and it looks like this:
I am pleased with the handling of the yarn and the interesting but easy to knit pattern. There is a problem, however. It is coming up too small, and the ribbing is too tight for the main part of the knit. Hmmmm.

I have been a bit poorly over the last couple of weeks. Nothing remotely serious – a cold and a cough. But don’t you find that when you have ‘only a cold’, you feel utterly rubbish?
Feeling under the weather can make us vulnerable to mind-tricks. Negative messages seem like well-worn truths: You’ll never amount to much; Who do you think you are, writing a blog for other people to read?
