Sock knitting is my comfort knitting, so it’s not too much of a surprise that I had to cast on another sock over the weekend. Yes, I still have one on the needles, but it’s a second sock and I’m past the gusset, so I needed one in reserves. Plus this yarn is pretty colors. It’s from Leading Men Fiber Arts yarn in a color called Complete Imagination.
The weekend was good for more than knitting too! I got all my handknit socks washed and hung to dry, and made some yummy pumpkin muffins.
Unfortunately, I started feeling some vertigo and nausea on Saturday afternoon, so I wasn’t 100% for the girl’s visit. We managed a few games of Scrabble and Bananas, but otherwise I spent a lot of time on the couch not moving around so my stomach wouldn’t get upset. I got brave and went to the MinuteClinic this morning because I was afraid it was an ear infection that would get worse if I ignored it, but found out it’s fluid in my inner ear probably caused by allergies. With any luck, the nose spray and motion sickness meds I got will help quickly. And yes, I washed my hands a lot and used hand sanitizer and avoided touching things as much as possible! So for now, the couch is my friend. The dogs are pretty happy with that.
Happy Monday, friends.
I hope you feel better quickly. Allergy season has arrived here too:(
The socks are lovely!
Thank you! Mine have never been like this before; it’s not fun!
Feel better soon! Allergies are miserable!
Apparently! This is a new symptom for me. I’m not a fan! 😉
I developed allergies a few years ago, seems to be the trees that get me!
It seems like I read a while back that this spring is going to be a bad one for allergies. Guess we better prepare ourselves! (As if a global health crisis wasn’t enough…)
Allergies are the worst. I hope you are back to normal soon. I really like your new sock. Your sweater is going to be amazing.
I keep telling myself that it could be a lot worse, but yeah, it’s not super fun. I’m sure my meds will help. And so will my knitting!
Knitting helps most things.
Happy Monday – hope you feel better soon! Your sock projects look great, and it looks like you have some wonderful assistants to help you out 🙂
Haha, oh yes, they’re BIG helpers!! 😉
Hope you get all better soon!
Wow you have a lot of handmade socks, that must feel good 🙂 Maybe one day that will be me.
Thank you! It does feel good…except when it’s time to wash them all! I’ll probably have doubled this by the time the current crisis is over! 😉
I’m so sorry you were not feeling well. I hope you are feeling better!
