Sick Day Pattern Search

I wrote this post a couple of months ago when I was in the middle of a long cold.

I'm home sick with a cold. I'm stuffy, uncomfortable and sick of watching daytime television. I'm feeling weak, so I'm not up for any strenuous knitting. I got to thinking... are there any fun sick day knitting patterns out there? When I was a kid, my mom had a stash of treats for when I had to stay home sick, a box of tissues with cartoons on it, a new book, something to keep me occupied instead of complaining. Let's see what I find!

  • Cozy Doctor Mask - This wouldn't work to keep something sterile, but could make a good Halloween costume for someone.
  • Virus Creativus - This is a dishrag that has a purled virus in the center. Instructions are written out, not charted.
  • Knit Bacteria - Hopefully none of these are in my system! I may have to knit some up because they're cute. As long as they stay on my shelf I'd be happy.
  • Nose Warmer - This is like a mask... for your nose! I would want to make it out of something machine washable...
  • Face Punch Relaxation Mask - Filled with flax seed so it could be warmed up in the microwave, this cute cabled bag could ease my headache just about now!

I could search for hot water bottle cozies, but I know that these are more common, so I'll leave that for another search. I didn't find too much, but I was able to distract myself on the internet for a while. Catch you later!
