It’s been very quiet here at p and c lately, both literally and figuratively as I succumbed to an annual bout of laryngitis. This one was so bad that The Golfer took me off to the doctor where I had a telehealth consult in the clinic carpark which lead to a COVID-19 test by a nurse who came to the car gowned, full-face masked and double gloved. A bit of a scary sight and the test is not a pleasant experience but one which, thankfully, gave a negative result.
I’m on the mend but this bout was so bad it zapped me of my energy, enthusiasm and sewing mojo as well as my voice, so I’m badly behind in all my projects. But, I’m well and that counts for everything these days.
The most I was up to was a bit of knitting, and socks are always a go-to for me as they are quick and, now I’ve made so many, easy. My lovely chiropractor is moving down Geelong way, just a bit too far to travel for a treatment! So as a farewell and thank you present I knitted her a pair of socks and also a pair for her partner as he was quite taken with the pair I knitted her for Christmas, so he now has a pair of his own.
I was able to order the yarn from Wondoflex; their range is a bit limited as they’ve sold out of a lot of stock. (Heard tell on the radio that LOTS of people have taken up knitting and crochet during the pandemic and yarn is in short supply Australia wide!!)
I chose this pretty blue and used the “Muddy Daffodils” pattern by Clare Devine for her
and this tweed for him and used “Ann’s Go-To Socks” from the book Sockupied
They both have long feet so it was strange knitting for such a long time on the foot part….would it ever measure the required length???
At the beginning of the year I cleaned up my yarns and put them in a different spot, but now I can’t find my acrylic stock thingies so the above displays are not the best – no doubt they will turn up when I’m looking for something else!
That’s all for today. Hope to be back soon with some pre-illness sewing and walking pics for you. Do hope you’re all well and stitching/knitting/crocheting to your heart’s content. Take care.
