More socks finished and it's been a few days
Did you miss me? It has been an horrendous week, both weather weather wise and health wise for Mr Mog. It has rained every single day until today. Not just rained but sleet and floods, you name it we have had it. Today it is sunny but icy cold, we actually managed to get 10 minutes on the promenade which was good.
Mr Mog has been poorly this week. He has possibly had a virus to add to his hormone problems. Also really bad acid in his throat. His temperature keeps fluctuating from freezing to boiling, no inbetweens for this mog. I rang the NHS direct line yesterday teatime as he hadn't picked up at all. In fact he had spent all Friday night awake then all yesterday just lying on the sofa, not like Mr at all he is normally so active. I'm ringing the doctor in the morning to make an appointment for him, he has to have his next monthly hormone shot on Wednesday and I'm a little worried about him having it if he is so low. So not much time to do much.
I did list a lot of stuff on ebay to raise funds for his holiday fund and it has gone pretty well. Thank you all who purchased. Last ones finish today. I'm hoping I can take him away, fingers crossed. He is so down at the moment.
However I have finished another pair of socks and made 1 sock of another pair. Oh SP, what have you done gifting me with this obsession??
The rainbow pair are made from some fabulous yarn sent me by Ruth
Regia Nation color (rainbow) and the pattern was the simple one I've done BUT I added a little reverse stocking stitch to make it interesting:) They fit Mr Mog perfectly, those are his legs BTW not mine:))
The second picture is very dark, this yarn is hard to photograph perfectly but take it from me it is stunning. It reminds me of night, the dark blues aubergine and purples. It is from Liz Knitting on the Green
The colour on the website was a lot lighter than the acutal yarn but I love it. Liz mailed very fast and the yarn is soft and stunning.
So one more sock to knit then I need a simple easy pattern for more please:)
