Knitting Resumes

House socks in progress
women's size 10
July 2017
I haven't done much knitting since my surgery: it has been too hard to knit when my eyelids are constantly flapping closed and sleep takes over. On Saturday, I managed to finish one sock - knit with size 6 needles and a light worsted yarn.

Sue came over on Independence Day with lunch, and as we visited, I finished the second sock.

               (Ravelry link) free pattern

Yarn: Woodlander (Shade L2)
           80% acrylic and 20% wool

It feels good to knit again and to finish a project.

  1. Welcome back to knitting! Those are very pretty - love the colors in them. I've been thinking of trying a worsted weight sock...imagine they go much faster than regular ones.

  2. Congratulations on a finish! Well and a start too. It never fails that when I have to sit still or not do much I'm not interested in any of my hand projects. Glad the knitting has caught your attention.

  4. Socks are comfort knitting, aren't they?! I have never used worsted to make socks; I should give it a whirl! Nice inspiration!

  5. Very pretty socks. I had to smile when you described your eyelids slamming closed. I definitely remember that feeling after my last surgery experience. You need the drugs to stay ahead of the pain, but they make you so sleepy. Glad you are able to knit again already.
