Fushia Gable

And so, there I was on Saturday, miserable with a sore throat and a bad cold, pondering if I really wanted to cast on DH's jumper with the sombre brown Rowanspun.
Life was getting more miserable by the hour. A pounding head, non-stop sniffles and the chaos at Heathrow airport unfolding on BBC World were enough to make me want to crawl into bed and hide.
I kept wondering what if passengers were to find out their flights were on the list of targeted planes, would they ever fly again? Would they live their lives differently after this?

I definitely needed some cheering and went for the more uplifting Fushia Bendigo yarn instead. Green Gable as Office Casual 3.
