Headache, Tire Warning Light and Pictures
I also went ahead and changed the heel flap to k4, instead of k3. I wanted to add something to it and it worked out nicely. The yarn is a super wash merino/nylon. It is one of my own paints. I needed a change from my usual colors and well, it isn't exactly my color palette but, who cares, they will keep my feet warm this winter.
I have had a killer headache all day long. I went to get myself some dinner and my car decided to let me know that my back tire was almost flat. Grrr! So, I get him home and check...he was low but, not flat. So, I have to fill the tire up before I go anywhere in the car. I am so ready for those new tires. I am to the point where I have to fill the tire up every other day before I go some place. I think it is coming down to filling it every single day.
The socks will need to be blocked but, I am not doing that until I get the other one knit. The pattern calls for a total of 7 repeats but, there is no freaking way...I did 6 and that fits my 8.5 shoe size. I also implemented the 3 needle bind off for the toe. I was bored and wanted to do something different. This changed the tune of the sock. I am using US 3 needles for this pair of socks, I think the pattern wanted a US 2. I have no idea where those needles are right now so, I used what I can find, the US 3's.
Hopefully, the headache will go the way of the dodo and leave sometime soon. I need to shampoo my hair and hopefully the hot water will help with the headache. I think something blew in again because my face is killing me. So, I know some funky plant pollen is getting to me. I wish it would all just go away.
I did do some beading today but, that will have to wait for a later date, I am thinking it might become a Christmas present. I might even keep it for me. It is just pretty.
