A Finished Object

I was beginning to think I'd never get anything finished! I've been chipping away a little at this & that but mostly I've had sore fingers & no ambition to do anything other than dress, undress, find something to eat when I'm hungry & do enough dishes to keep ahead of the mess. No energy, no desire to go out & no desire to knit anything. Maybe it goes with the cough & maybe not. This last week I've been taking extra Vitamin D & sitting under my 'Daylight' bulb & forcing myself outside around Noon especially when it's sunny - well, on the TWO DAYS it wasn't raining??? Haha   I do feel better. Maybe it's the Placebo Effect but who cares, I feel better. And I've finished my stripey blue & lavender socks!! At last!!

The old fingers are still sore & tax season is upon us. I haven't been taking much medication  - trying to get by without - but it appears it's time to smarten up & get back to it. And stay on it, sigh. Or I won't be able to spin in the Tour de Fleece this year. And I already have a light blue/dark blue pair of socks on the go. I intended to knit Frankensocks but the partial balls I found are pretty big & may almost stretch to a pair of socks - I'm to midfoot & will knit until the yarn runs out - with solid toes. Since the Hairdresser's boyfriend stole a pair of her socks & wore them until the heels wore through, I'll have to make her a second pair & he'll get the Frankensocks when I get around to it.

Glad you're feeling better too! It does help a lot to get out in the fresh air even if the sun isn't out. Exercise is good - preferably NOT in a stinky gym!

Nice pair of socks! With a gazillion fancy sock patterns out there, there's something comforting about making plain socks, isn't there?
