life with a chronic disease and a really big yarn stash
Wednesday Update: lots of work, very few words
I would love to do a Wordless Wednesday. It would be so cool. I think that I should set a goal for myself to work up to it slowly and to capture the best picture that displays the struggles/successes of the week. Since I didn’t do that here is an almost wordless Wednesday update of my current projects.
It’s raining outside and will change to snow overnight. I have the flowering plants that I want to keep inside and I am ready to ply this yarn tomorrow. Sure wish my bed socks were done. Have a great rest-of-the-week everyone.
I weave, knit and read in Aurora, Colorado where my garden lives. I have 2 sons, a knitting daughter-in-law, a grandson and two exceptionally spoiled kittens. In 2014 I was diagnosed with a serious rare autoimmune disease called systemic sclerosis along with Sjogren's Disease and fibromyalgia.

Snow!! Abi and Josh would be so jealous. We don’t get it every year here in southern England. It’s really exciting to see your spinning, I haven’t done any of my hand spinning lately, I really need to get back into it as 10 minutes a day really helps exercise my neck, much more and it does the opposite! The sock looks cosy 🙂 x
I’m going to post the snow picture later today. Cats aren’t exactly thrilled with this turn in events…
Such lovely socks and what gorgeous spinning!
Thanks. They are really bed socks as the toes and heels won’t stand up to hard wear. They are very comfy!
Great socks and spinning! You got me intrigued with the toe and heel on your socks, they look so nice and original 🙂
Both were done with short rows in garter stitch. The toe was really different; you do a provisional CO at the top of the toe for 1/2 the sock. Then you knit towards the tip of the toe with decreasing short rows. At the very tip of the toe the short rows start increasing until you are at the top of the toes on the other side of the sock. You pick up those provisional stitches again, join in the round and suddenly it looks like a sock. It was confusing, but worked out great.
