In Progress: Just Another Vanilla Sock


I'm sluggish. I don't know what else to say, but as I'm typing this, all I can think about is how much I want to crawl into bed with one of my books and fall asleep within a matter of minutes.

(Worth noting is that only minutes after I started putting this post together, I got two migraines two days in a row, which explains more than you can imagine)  

Between that and the wrist pain I've had since Christmas, my knitting time has been little-to-none. That doesn't mean I haven't been doing anything, but it means I forced myself to take a break so my wrist got better (it hasn't) and lost my mojo in the process.

That said, I'm in "get it done" mode and have been picking projects back up left and right just to finish them off. One of those WIPs are these vanilla socks I started forever ago as an on-the-road project for visiting breweries or going out for cocktails (I am clearly not afraid of knitting in public!)

Here are the details, in case you're interested: 

Yarn: Patons Kroy Socks Stripes
Colorway: Meadow Stripes
Pattern: Not really using a pattern at this point - just straight knitting socks based on how I know they fit!
Heel: Fish Lips Kiss

This project is taking forever, so I'm a bit sick of looking at it. But it's been nice to take with me on brief car trips because the other socks I'm working on are a bit less mindless.

Now that I've briefly checked in, it's time to go and continue recouping. Today was my first full day back to work this week thanks to my migraines, so it was an exhausting day trying to catch up. I'm still loving working from home, though, and my job in general. I'm looking forward to speaking at a marketing conference next month, as well, although thinking about it kind of makes me want to puke, too :P

In the meantime, I'm: also:

Reading: Columbine by Dave Cullen (I'm just over 100 pages in and its riveting - highly recommended for anyone who, like me, remembers this event, or is interested in how/why this stuff happens)

Watching: The Golden Girls (It's on Hulu and I've been binge-watching. You know you're jealous)
