The boys were both home today. We did the strep test, and the 5 minute one was negative. They would now grow it for 24 hours, and if that was negative they’d grow it some more until it was 48 hours, and notify us if it ever turned positive. Great.
I did some weaving in the afternoon while they napped. The purple/green section is my 3rd shuttle, using yarns 5 and 6 together (a green-y blend and a purpley blend). The stitch marker is just my marker for where I stopped counting picks (rows). As I wind it up I’m keeping track of how many rows there are so I can make each of the 5 panels the exact same length.
I’m at about 47″, and I hope it will be about 80″.
Here’s a better look at my current manicure. Jakob was surprised that while I was home sick I had bare nails, and asked me to paint them again. I was in the mood for a chrome and couldn’t pick which one, so I used all 3. Then I topped them with the black-dotted clear topcoat. I considered them “Spring-y”, but someone said they look just like the foil-wrapped little chocolate Easter eggs, and I think they’re right!

Hope it is not strep.
Your nails do look like chocolate eggs! (the wrapper!)

Cool nails! Love the progress on the blanket too. You and your poor kids really are suffering this year! 😦
