2010 - FO NO 13
Pattern: Rib Lace Socks from Little Box of Socks
Size: Ladies Medium
Yarn: Lush Yarn
After having so much time sitting around knitting in the past few weeks, last night I saw my lonely second sock sitting there begging me to finish it up. I only had 2 pattern repeats to do before the toe so after dinner I sat down and decided to finish them. I absolutely love this color and the pattern shows up so nicely. I havent blocked them but decided to put them on the sock blockers for the photo since my trusty photo assistant is at school this morning! I have also cast on for Isabelle's stripey socks and have done quite a bit. I am knitting them with the Noir spotlight yarn and they are turning out very nicely. It is just a basic pattern and I am hoping I can finish them by the weekend before I cast on for anything else!
Health Update: I have to say these past couple of weeks have been a real test for me. It has shown me how much pain I can withstand (not that I wanted to find out actually) and how much Paul can actually do around the house (thank you so much honey)! Today is the first day without having a swollen tummy and painful spasms. I had to go back to the doctor's on Monday night and yesterday had blood tests. Hopefully the results come back tomorrow. The doctor thinks I may have coeliac disease but my sister and I tend to think it is Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I popped into the chemist yesterday for some IBS tablets and today I feel so much better, almost back to normal. My sister spoke to me on the phone the other night when I was very sore and uncomfortable and she has been diagnosed with the same thing a few years ago now and the pain was very similar. I didnt realise how painful IBS could be until she told me. So fingers crossed that when I speak to the doctor that IBS is what I have and that it will be manageable. Thank you all too for sending me well wishes in the last post when I mentioned being ill, it is great to have online friends who make you feel better! Okay enough about the sickness, it is time to get back to normal!
