The Art of Active Rest

I caught the plague; this horrible, icky, chest racking, cough laden, sinus pressure plague that I tried to ignore all weekend so I could go out and explore on my precious days off. Come Monday morning, I was wrecked. I had absolutely no energy and could not rally to accomplish anything, but could not sleep either. So, I knit.

I spent the entire day laying around, drinking hot ginger tea, and knitting until I lost the energy to move my hands.

My project is the Daisy Stitch Tunic in Cascade 220. I promised my friend this top last summer. Let’s not count how many months have passed since then, shall we?

This was the perfect sick day project, alongside the proof that I need to knit as mental recuperation after an intensely physical week.

This morning I woke feeling much better, relaxed mentally, emotionally, physically. My sinus are clear and my cough isn’t painful anymore (though it lingers).

Active resting, it’s a thing.
