Maybe it’s a little too soon to toot my own horn, but toot toot! I started my first (well actually second because I ripped out the first one when the ribbing came out wonky) sock Wednesday night. I am tooting my horn because this second attempt has proved more successful than the first. Why? Because I do not, I repeat: I do not, have any ladders! I am tooting my horn because when I had to go to Urgent Care yesterday, there was a two year old boy who kept himself occupied by watching me knit with 5 needles! I am tooting my horn because I have finished the 1 1/2″ ribbing and I am going to start the leg of my sock.
And I’m very tired. So it looks like I will definitely have a pair of socks ready for “Knitty Gritty”. This pregnancy is taking a lot out of me. Again, I have yet another girly problem and it’s affecting my sitting, laying down, standing and urinating. Not only that but my hips feel like they are cracking. If I wasn’t pregnant I’d think that osteoporosis was setting in a bit early. (It doesn’t help that the weather turned pretty chilly within the last week either.) Lastnight was a restless one. I tried laying sideways, a little on my tummy, and I could feel the pressure cramping my uterus (and ureter). I’m just not doing too well.
But again, I’m tooting my horn because through it all I am really trying to make a pair of socks. (They may fit too!)
