Being only three weeks before Christmas, I had many plans for today. Instead,
I did nothing, nothing, nothing
I did nothing all day long
I did absolutely nothing
How do you like my nothing song.
Second verse, same as the first, a little bit louder and a little bit worse
Oh, I did nothing, nothing, nothing...
I woke up with a headache and drank two cups of coffee. That didn't help, so then I took two Tylenol. That didn't help either. If I could've backed it up I would've taken Excedrin first, but with two cups of coffee already in my system I didn't want to add the equivalent of two more. So....I waited the four hours and then took Excedrin and now feel back in the land of the living.
In the meantime, I managed to knit about four rows, take two short naps, and do a bit of reading. Sigh. I had plans for today.
Earlier in the week, though, I was more productive.
I finished the toe of my second sock. Not wanting to make the error of cutting the yarn too soon, I let it marinate overnight.
The next day, I tried it on and decided it was the same length as the other (I had counted the rows already, but I still was apprehensive). I then cut the yarn, weaved in the ends, and wore them to work.
I used a generic sock pattern using Kroy sock yarn with 56 sts on size 2 needles. If I did them again, I would switch down to size 1 needles since the resulting fabric feels a bit loose.
I say generic, but I actually switched it up a tiny bit, this time doing a short row heel (I'm beginning to get the hang of these) and a star toe. I'm excited on having a new pair of socks to wear.
Happy Early Christmas to me!
