Et voila! Here are my socks of death. This color is dead on (pun intended).It's the January art walk sock club selection. The pattern is an easy one and I really like it. I'll probably make a pair for me at some point. This is the fastest I have ever knit a pair of socks. One week. Being home sick helped some but not a lot. I was living on cold medicine and spent a lot of time sleeping. I am just glad they're done. I didn't really expect to finish and I'm surprised that I'm not dead yet. I know my target has mailed off her weapon already so I won't have to knit another pair. Now, I just have to wait for my assassin to kill me. I put some herbal tea, some cadbury eggs and some stitch markers in the envelope as well. I wanted to cushion the blow, although how tough is it to get handknit socks in the mail?
I am resting today and tomorrow and plan to go back to work on Monday. My head is still congested but my nose isn't running quite as much. I actually resorted to taking Benadryl yesterday. I only use that when I'm in dire straits. It really knocks me out. I don't remember much about yesterday......and today is slightly fuzzy, too.
Not much else is happening around here. For me, the big news is finishing the socks of death. Now that they're out of the way, I can swatch for the Evenstar shawl kal and work on Pk's sweater. And go back to knitting slowly. I'm looking forward to the kal. My yarn came and it's sooo thin. I haven't done anything with laceweight for a while and forgot how it looks like dental floss. I just have to wait for my 3mm tips for my options to come from knitpro (knitpicks doesn't sell that size). And I have to learn a circular cast on. GaaK will be happening here!
Hope your weekend is filled with peace.
