Notes – November 12, 2014

How are you being crafty this week?  I’m working on these:

2014.11.12

These socks.  THESE SOCKS have been in my needles for wa.a.a.a.a.y too long.  You see, I started them back around Valentine’s Day to learn how to knit toe up socks.  I worked on the first sock during chemo, then finished it and made it just past the heel on the second sock the week I was in the hospital with pneumonia. They sort of lounged around during the rest of the summer, because I wanted to work on other things.  I pulled them out a few weeks ago to wrap up, but realized that every time I touched the darn things, my head instantly went back to those awful weeks when I was so very, very sick. And I no longer liked the intricate cables that originally pulled me to the pattern. SO…I frogged the first sock back to the same level as the half finished second sock and strung them both on a single, very long cable needle so I could teach myself “Two Socks at a Time with Magic Loop”.  I fiddled around with making up a fancy leg, hated it, frogged again and am now declaring them to be plain vanilla toe up socks.  I have to get them done ASAP, because I need the cable needle to make Mr. Pea’s Christmas present!

Yarn – Colinette Jitterbug in Fuchsia

Reading?   More like Proofreading.  That storm water management plan laying under my socks. It’s due soon, and I need to wrap it up just a quickly as the socks!  I’m also still engrossed in the Outlander series; I finished both Dragonfly in Amber and Voyager, and am now a few chapters into An Echo in the Bone.  

Linking up with Ginny…hop over and see what everyone is making.

Knit Something. Keep the Faith.
