Sorry I have been so conspicuously absent.
I injured my back and moving around my house easily has become quite the problem. (Not to mention trying to herd a medium-sized puppy around!)
The Urgent Care Dr. gave me some Flexaril and in my rare moments awake, I have been plugging away at this sock:
My neon orange Thuja - fastest sock in the West.
My terradance socks in Over the Rainbow Twinkletoes Sock yarn that I bought off ebay AGES ago. I knit this much last night during Sarah Connor Chronicles!
This is my Cozy V-Neck Pullover from Stefanie Japel's book. This also is going very quickly. I frogged Sleeping Beauty for this - a much more wearable neckline for me.
I have been struggling to keep up with the Bloglines because of the back - don't be surprised if I am slow to comment, friends! For those of you complaining about the math in my earlier post: I have used up 4x the amount of yarn that I purchased in January (so in other words - there is less coming in than there is going out!)
I am also participating in A Year In Socks with my buddy Rani. I've got a pattern and yarn all picked out, I just have to cast on.
Oh no. Your back.
But the knitting looks great! You're really crankin' the stuff out.
No more picking up that puppy - how is Ozzie doing? I hope those little legs are starting to come back.
A few months ago I started to have some back pain, and I've started a stomach/back exercise regimine before bed each night--- well, most nights. It's helped a great deal.
You can still knit--and how!
You have done so much knitting! Love the blue sweater. I have the book and keep planning to knit something out of it...The orange socks are - well - Bright!
