Living and crafting between the hot flashes

Oops!

See that orange stitch holder? I dropped a stitch waaay back 12 rows just at beginning of the heel flap.

It looks farther down into the sock than it really is. I hope I don’t have to rip it back into the leg but just to the row with the orphaned stitch.

Good thing I like this yarn and love my daughter or I wouldn’t be too happy with this pair of socks right now.

PS Happy Birthday to my Wonderful Brother! 🎉🎈🎂❤️

After the untangling

After untangling the yarn, spending a few more days helping my sister, seeing our grandkids one more time*, and getting my ankle working right**, I finally got back to my knitting.

One November sock finished and the second sock started.

This pattern isn’t hard at all but does require some fine motor skills when doing the Honeycomb Knit stitch. Fortunately, it’s only once every six rows.

I’m really liking the stitch definition on the leg portion and will try to get this second sock finished soon. The depth of color is awesome!

My grandson’s redyed socks are next up…and I can choose the pattern myself!!

*********

*Our two grandkids that only live an hour and a half away are moving. Today. To Michigan. That’s about a 7-8 hour drive.

**I started physical therapy on my left ankle/foot to get some relief from the Achilles Tendonitis that has been plaguing me for several months. It’s a slow process but seems to be working.

It’s all good

Four hours and forty-minutes later…

I’m back in business. No more tangles!

The three-hour trip back home from my sister’s took five hours. A traffic jam caused by an accident plus the GPS taking me on the scenic route made the trip way too long for me.
I’m heading back to help out again on Tuesday.

  • Notes to self

      • Do not take dark-colored clothing…dog hair.
    • Look at the GPS route before leaving.
    • Have some meals/menus planned.
