Happy New Year! Yeah, a little late but the last couple of months have been no fun. I had illness on top of illness. One illness aggravated another which was not helpful. I was actually so down and out that for a few weeks I didn't want to knit. I laid in front of the television and watched sitcom reruns. Which I did enjoy doing. I'm a sitcom junkie. We also managed a trip to Disney World over Christmas break. I was lucky to be having a good week that week. Now, 2 months later, I am finally on the other side and feeling back to myself.
Feeling better brought back my knitting mojo and off I went. I knit a lovely pair of socks from yarn and a pattern that I won on turtlegirl76's blog. The yarn is Artsygal in colorway Froglegs and the pattern is Everyone Outta the Pool.
I love these socks but I really have too many and I've decided to give away most socks I knit this year. I reserve the right to keep a few :) These are going to a friend that told me about her chiropractor. He is the best and the back pain I've been struggling with for the last 5 years is almost gone! She deserves more than socks.
I've also started more socks (self striping from Twisted Limone), and a shawl (with my Wollmeise) but I don't have pictures of those yet. And lastly, I've been working hard to finish up the sweater I was knitting for my husband. I finished it yesterday and it fit great, except it is 2-3 inches too short! So much for careful measuring. So later today I will be using this method to fix it. Pictures to follow when I can get him to pose...with the new length.
