Knitting Karma and Other News
I finished those socks, you know the ones I grumbled about over and over again. I believe I knit into each stitch too much bad karma. You see, I decided to do an afterthought heel (not my favorite but it works well with weird stripping). I proudly finished the heels and buried the threads and thought "gee these look fantastic" and the DO.
But they do not fit my feet. There was no way I was going to undo and re-knit the socks at the toe or at the heel. I'm finished with them. Don't worry though, I know whose feet they will fit, my daughter can proudly wear them.
So my socks have a happy ending.
I love knitting my sweater, this is my slow and savory knitting. You know, the kind you want to just sit and knit and enjoy each blessed stitch. The progress is slow but the therapy I'm getting while knitting is in multitudes.
My asana shawl is the project I'm most excited about. I knew when I arrived at the beading portion of the directions I would be obsessed with doing more rows and more beads. Just wait until the shawl is blocked! That is when the bead magic begins. I'm getting giddy just thinking about it.
The weather here is warm, too warm! Last night I was hot even with the window opened. Who would ever think that a window would be opened in February? I walked the dog twice yesterday and today I'm tired and a little slow. I need to build up my stamina.
I shopped for a new pair of sneakers for casual walking. I found some and hope they meet my expectations. Shopping for shoes is difficult because of my RA. I'm hopeful I found THE pair because this time I asked the sales people for advice and opinions.
This past week, I've been mindful of my eating habits and find that I feel so much better. I'm not doing anything drastic, just eating more fruits and vegetables, keeping track and eating way less garbage.
