It was SO nice to finally pick up the needles again this weekend.
Because last week was entirely consumed with the girls’ homework and class projects, I really couldn’t focus on packing for the trip until Saturday morning, when there wasn’t much time. So for knitting, I took the only “grab and go” project I had, which was the green socks. That’s digging back in time.
I was a little worried because I’d tried to knit on the socks a few times this year, and couldn’t do it. They were too fiddle-some a project for how sick I was with the pregnancy, and then for how anxious and stressed I was when we were suddenly MOVING, while I was sick with the pregnancy.
But, that’s what I had, so I took it. And I loved it. The sad part is that the only page of copied instructions I could find got me through the heel flap, turning of the heel, the first round of the gusset decreases, and that’s it. All of which I finished the first day.
Leaving me to pout and gripe the remaining two days.
But still, I knit. And it was glorious.
Now I am feeling quite motivated to find and unpack the boxes of knitting books and magazines so I can knit some more! It’s satisfying, and it doesn’t aggravate my re-injured back.
