I'm Feeling Much Better, Thank You

Um, I sort of took a week off.

It wasn't because I was sick, though I was.

It was because I was in a knitting frenzy and I didn't want to admit it to you...because I didn't touch this Norwegian sweater:

This baby jacket:

Or This Hat:

I know you are all eagerly anticipating the Norwegian sweater, the baby jacket and This Hat, but I betrayed all of you.

Instead I finished these (for Yummy unless they are too small already):

Started and finished these (for Yummy):

And found it ironic that I broke out in hives on the day I started knitting a sock pattern called Swarm of Bees and didn't fully recover my normal, sallow skintone until the day I finished them. I became rather manic about finishing them.

I also started and completed these (for Vicious) in 24 hours:

They are not pink. They are like...um...flames. Yes, they are Fire Socks!

And I started knitting this (for me):

Because the Yarn Harlot told me to. And online knitters are like lemmings when it comes to the Harlot. I spend long hours praying the woman never decides to jump off a cliff.

Oh, and during it all, this happened:

Which means I (and my family) finally get to reap the benefits of knitting over 7 miles of wool over the past year.


  1. Glad you are better! Now get back to that sweater. And hat. And other sweater.

  2. That's not nice! Show us more of the Norwegian sweater.
    All the socks are great and I've wanted to order some of that knitpicks tweed.
    I know how you feel about the Harlot!

  3. That's a lot of socks! All beautiful.

    Glad to hear you're feeling better!
