Well, that was an unexpected blog break yesterday. Not to belabor the topic but let me just say – I went to bed Sunday night feeling absolutely fine and then woke up at 12:30am feeling nauseous. By 1am I was hurling and that went on every hour or so until 6am. I spent the day on Monday too sick to knit, to read, to go online or even sit upright. I had a wonderful night’s sleep on Monday night, though, and woke up feeling much better on Tuesday. I was still weak and lightheaded but compared to the way I felt on Monday it was a bit of a miracle. Thank you all for the concerned emails and healing thoughts sent my way, I am quite sure it helped.
Okay, enough about that, let’s talk about something more fun – a finished pair of socks!
These are a Christmas present for Lois and yes, I know that Christmas was almost 3 months ago. Lois is the queen of missing deadlines, though, and she understood completely when I gave her a gift certificate at Christmas that said I would knit her socks from the yarn of her choosing.
I think she made an excellent choice when she selected this Sophie’s Toes yarn in the color Table for Two. The greens are beautifully blended and this yarn is a pleasure to work with.
It’s so nice to knit a pair of socks for a friend; it’s a gift from the heart that will bring warmth and comfort for a long time.
