yep, i’ve been sick as a dog, all weekend! i don’t think i’ve ever been this ill before – i’ll spare you the gory details, but there was a LOT of puking. eventually, i had to phone NHS 24, who thought i sounded so ill that they sent an on-call doctor out late last night with some marvellous drugs to stop the puking, and i feel a little bit better now.
to distract us all from the yucky sickness, here’s something pretty:
pattern: “uptown boot socks” from favorite socks
yarn: colinette jitterbug, unknown colourway (one of the mill-end bargains from the trip to the colinette mill shop)
modifications: deliberate modifications included making the ribbed cuff longer than written, and doing an eye-of-partidge heel flap. i also reversed the cabling on the second sock to make it a mirror image of the first. accidental modifications included a couple of cables on the second sock being twisted the wrong way, and the second sock somehow ending up about an inch longer than the first! (i may have accidentally worked an extra cable pattern repeat on the leg).
hopefully that will tide us over until i’m feeling better – luckily, i finished them on friday, since i’m even too ill to knit (& that’s how you know it’s serious!)
