Is it Coronavirus? Allergies? Will I have enough Yarn to survive the Plague?

PictureCheck out the latest video!

How are you? How is your social distancing going? Are you worried your yarn stash will deplete faster than the Covid-19 pandemic will end? 

I’ve been under the weather the last two days. I woke up on Tuesday with a very upset stomach, exhaustion, and mild headache.  I spent all day in bed wondering if I was experience allergies, a stomach bug, or Covid-19.  My temperature remained in my normal range which is a good sign.  But, out of an abundance of caution, locked myself away from hubby and daughter.  Of course, if  what I was/am experiencing was/is Covid-19 my family is already exposed. But, you know.  

I won’t hold you in suspense. I’m feeling much better this morning.  I’m still fatigued but it’s not as bad.  My stomach has settled down. (Yay, not a stomach bug).  I did wake up with congestion and sinus pressure.  I took an allergy pill and the chest congestion has subsided although the sinus pressure remains.  I still have no fever.  I think it’s allergies. 

Like a good American, I took this unexpected time of solitude to be productive and  move my blog off of Blogger and onto Weebly.  (Finally I have the layout control I’ve always wanted!).  ​  

I hope people will enjoy this more robust environment where my YouTube content is more centralized, and I can start more uploading patterns.

Speaking of my videos.  I’m behind on editing and shooting thanks to my unexpected solitude.  I have a new Craft & Chill video to edit.  And I think we could all use some craft & chill in our lives

As always happy Knitting!

Knit Picks Suspends Shipping!

​I received an email fromKnit Picks yesterday. Due to public health concerns, they are still accepting orders but are not shipping .  They are offering 15% off orders today.  

I’ve always had a good experience with Knit Picks, so I have no doubt they will fulfill orders when it is safe to do so.  

I applaud Knit Picks making the decision to suspend shipping so their employees cans social distance.  Although for obsessed knitters, yarn is an essential, it is not an essential business.   

I worry about the small craft businesses surviving this pandemic.  When this is over – and it will end –  there will have to be a concerted effort to support these businesses and the local LYS.  ​
