I’m being more proactive in fixing my shoulders; I can’t afford to go to the chiropractor and the massage therapist as often as I would like but I know I’ve got to do something, so I dug out some dumbells I got for Christmas last year and I’m working on my shoulder strength, and I’ve requested some yoga DVDs from the library. Hopefully these things will help. I also requested some belly dancing DVDs for the fun of it, but I digress.
I’ve started some more socks (even though I’ve got a few pairs that are still on the go, I’m a starter, not a finisher).
The above is sock number one of the Herringbone Rib Socks. I oddly don’t have 2.5 mm in circular form…anyway, I’m very much in love with Claudia Hand Paints, the yarn is deliciously squishy and not very splitty. It’s the Oops! colourway I got in Montreal.
And these are socks for my Dad. They’re in Sisu yarn which always puts me in mind of The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou. I gave him the balls for Christmas because my back wouldn’t let me get to them, and he laughed pretty hard when I told him they were socks. I think they’re going to be a quick knit. I ribbed for an inch on 2.5 mm needles and then switched to 3.0mm needles.
