Almost finished

Well, let me tell you....Retro Rib socks are almost finished.  I just need to graft the toes.  I remember last time thinking these socks take forever and they do.  It may just be my style of knitting, but these aren't a quick knit for me.  I mean a month for a pair of socks?  Normally 3 weeks max is all I take.  Oh well, they look lovely and tomorrow you will see them.  DH seems pleased with the result as well.  

I didn't feel very good this weekend.  (mom thinks it may be food poisoning, I'm not sure)  So I'm still a little under the weather this morning and trying to play catch up.  I'm thankful that I feel better today than yesterday and my head feels like thinking :)  Sorry for no pics, but tomorrow you will see.  Oh....I think I forgot to mention that N (my spinning teacher) is having everyone from Knit Night that wants to come to her house for spinning this week!  I may get to try a wheel!!!  I'm very excited....as if you couldn't tell.  (I will be sure to document the experience in pics for you!)

You can do it! I'm sure you'll be finished with the socks in no time.

And I hope that you continue to feel better! I ended up at the SHC Saturday morning, convinced I had the mumps (despite having had the vaccine, of course) because I looked like a chipmunk. Turns out, it was just an infection, but I still had to spend a day looking silly before the steroids kicked in and the swelling went down. ;)

I'm really conflicted about tomorrow night. I want to come to Nancy's and try my hand again at spinning, but I don't want to miss everyone who goes to McAllister's...

Food poisoning is awful. If you had it, believe me, you would know. Whatever it is, I hope you feel better by knit night so you can try your hand at spinning on a wheel!

I hope you feel better soon. You'll want to be top form for the wheel. I look forward to seeing your finished socks. I did very little knitting this weekend. Lots of time in the kitchen and reading...
