I have been trying to sit down and work on my newest sock, I am knitting a pair for myself. Right now, I am wearing two mismatched wool socks. I have no idea where their mates are so, I am desperate to keep my feet warm. Hence the mismatched socks. I decided to start knitting when this problem came to light.
So, I started on the Meagan sock with beads. I thought my yarn was slightly off and then realization hit, it wasn't my favorite merino/silk sock yarn...nope, it is some other blend and for the life of me, I can't even begin to guess what it is, I dyed it up in a beautiful periwinkle color and no idea what is in it. There might be some angora in it. I am not sure. Don't you hate when you dye a yarn up and can't remember what the fiber content is? Am I the only one this happens to?
I have been dealing with antibiotics. I was at the ER last week Monday with my current woe. My doctor was booked solid and I was in agony. So, I told the hubby we were going to deal with it. I couldn't take it any longer.
I sleep most of the day away on this particular antibiotic and the current ailment was kicking my ass. I have never seen the like before. I will say that I do not want this back...ever! It literally sucked the life out of me for a while. I am getting better and I am trying to work around it. I do two house cleaning items a day and that is it for me right now. Nothing more. Sad but, true.
I haven't given up on knitting, yet. I am still an avid participant with it. I am not buying any yarn this year, I am using stash yarn. What I have is it. I have way too much yarn as it is and I have plans for it. I think I am going to start knitting mittens with some of it for the unfortunate children that I collect items for and send them along for this year's campaign. I also have plans for hats and neck warmers. I am not a fan of the scarf, too much material and way overrated. I might even delve into gloves. I just know that there are a lot of needy kids with nothing. Maybe this will help those kids.
I wish I could sit down and spin because I have a lot of fiber that needs to become yarn. No idea when the arm will heal for me to sit and do that. It was getting better and then I over did it, again. Grr! Isn't that the way it goes? I thought it was healing and took off the ugly brace...bad idea.
Hopefully, I will have enough cuff of the sock done soon, and I will take pictures for everyone to see.
Have a wonderful week and happy knitting!
