I’m still here. I’ve been really sick, and laying low in an attempt to get better without having to hit the hospital. No insurance sucks. That is not an invitation to a political debate, it’s just a fact. I’m glad I’m feeling better, and the upside to being stuck sick is that I caught up on the back episodes of Doctor Who on Netflix, and I finished knitting three pair of socks for the kids for Christmas.

1469883_10151806006120963_1175023041_nThe question for today is: Do I go workout because I feel like slug after so many days laying around, or do I give it another day to recuperate and maybe knit another pair of socks? Decisions…decisions.

  1. Sorry to hear you’ve been sick. I’m impressed with your knitting, though. As for your question of the day, I guess that depends on how well you feel. You could always try to work out and then cut it short if you don’t feel up to it…

  2. DO NOT DO ANYTHING! There are few times in life that you can actually have a valid excuse to sit on your rear-enjoy it while you can. You have too many things coming up in life and you can’t be running around with humid hair and no makeup freaking out because you didn’t recuperate properly.
    Love ya ❤

  3. Love you, Lisa. You were right- I opted for a short trip to the market for more cough drops, and that wore me out. Then I sat and knitted an entire new pair of socks while binging on more Doctor Who. Viva la knitting.

  4. I’m so sorry you’ve been sick – I hope you get well soon. Your socks are beautiful. If you don’t mind me asking, what size needles and what kind of yarn are you using. It doesn’t look like regular sock yarn – they look nice and warm for cold Winter days!
    Have a good day.

  5. The green socks (for Bean) are regular variegated self-stripping sock yarn. The purples ones are just some nice soft wool/acrylic mix. The grey ones are Lion brand Wool-Ease, which is my very favorite yarn for knitting boot socks. It’s durable, high-wool content, but still machine washable. For all the work it takes to hand-knit socks, I want them to last!

    I use these needles:

    I really REALLY like the quicksilver coating- it’s like teflon, and the yarn always slips easily and never bunches. They’re my favorite.

  6. Actually, I think they’re smaller than 6mm. I don’t have the package to check them against, though. They’re about the thickness of the shaft of a q-tip.

  7. Thank you. I’ve knit a couple pairs of socks, but I’m still very much a novice. These are beautiful!
