In knitting news I finished one of my Vog On socks. Yeah!! I had to keep my hands busy. I was itchy, very itchy. Here is a picture of just a little bit.(sorry the picture is dark)
Now just imagine this rash EVERYWHERE!!! I mean everywhere. I had to keep my hands busy so I would not scratch my skin off, so I knitted. I did finish one Vog On and I am about to cast on the second. Here is a picture.( my foot is a little swollen from the reaction so the sock is a little tight. I have been trying it on as I go so I know it will fit fine once the swelling is gone.)
I also knitted on Hubby’s sock. Actually I almost finished the one,then I tried it on Hubby’s foot and guess what? It was too big!! I swear these socks hate me (is that possible?) I have knitted, frogged,restarted, frogged again, started yet again.....Why? Because the gauge swatch LIED. I hate gauge swatches. I knit them and then cast on accordingly. Then I have to rip it all out and start over. I have no clue why I even bother.
Well I started them over again. I refuse to be defeated by a pair of socks. Here is what little progress I have.
I am tempted to break out the 00 and make a mate to the other sock. That one at least fits (somewhat).
I also knitted on some christmas stuff. I did not get to knit on the MS3, because well there is no way I can concentrate when I want to rip my skin off.
Hubby took me to my lys. I needed to pick up some buttons. I found these: sheep and cow buttons. Aren’t they cute!
I also picked up some new SWTC bamboo yarn.( yarn therapy)
The color is called Serendipity. Very pretty.
In other news:
Has anyone heard of Nuttin’ But Stringz? (a little warning music will play when you click that link) They are amazing. I first heard them on Jack Big Music Show on Noggin and then I went to see if iTunes had any of their music and well I am going to purchase their album. “Thunder” is my favorite (it is what I am listening to right now). They combine violins and hip hop and classical and well lots of different types of music in a very unique way.
My girls love the music and dance to it. It is a nice change from the sappy sweet kids music. That is why I like them to watch Jacks Big Music Show on Noggin- lots of different types of music and it is easy on the parents too.
