Hey Dawn! I got my M & M socks done!! My first picot edge socks rock!
Behold the beauty:
They turned out fraternal but I kind of like them that way! They're kind of happy, crazy socks and that keeps right with the joy of them. I used a 64 stitch cast on and they turned out a little tight for me but as USUAL, my oldest claimed them right off the needles anyway! She wears them at night and loves them. I love the picot edge, I have a ball of Opal that I'm going to start tomorrow and I'm going to try to go up to a 72 stitch cast on maybe. I couldn't pull these ones up over my heel! Duh!!!
The yarn is Trekking XXL in colorway 165. Dawn sent it to me in a Christmas package. Thanks Dawn!
Knitting Nite is tomorrow night, my gallbladder ultrasound is Friday afternoon. I hope I make it. I've been so terribly out of it this week. Very tired. Sometimes I think the Fibro (or whatever it is) just kicks my butt. I'm not in tons of pain like I was before, but have felt so run down. I HAVE been sleeping good which is a blessing though.
I haven't walked at all this week. I got VERY discouraged after being so good for 5 weeks and found out at the Dr's office Monday morning that I GAINED 2 pounds.
Talk about depressing. Not only did I lose my knitting mojo, now I gotta get my exercising mojo back too!! Any advice would be appreciated. My Dr's nurse tried to be nice she said "maybe you gained some muscle". Isn't she cute? I know that I have to kick it up a notch and really exercise harder. I've just been trying to go slow in the beginning to gain some strength first and deal with any pain issues that my muscles would suffer. I'm okay, I just gotta stop feeling bummed about those two extra pounds. I mean I gave up PEPSI for gosh sakes!!!
Well, Tomorrow is another day....
