I'm catching up on the the blogging I've missed by beginning with the Superior School of Threadology wrap-up.

Time to go home and await anxiously for my threads from the Superior Threads Warehouse Shopping Spree to arrive in the mail! And arrive they did :o) I can hardly wait to start playing with all those yummy colours...

Sittin' and Knittin'

Well life has been a little challenging lately! I am slowly recovering from a high ankle sprain with torn ligaments. I haven't been able to walk much or drive, so I've been stuck at home with the exception of physiotherapy sessions.

And what have I been doing to keep from going crazy? I've been sittin' and knittin'... socks, that is. Many, MANY socks!

Winter boot socks for husband

Hiking boot socks for husband

Winter boot socks for me

Warm and fuzzy bed socks for daughter

My husband loves hand-knitted socks so he's a happy man. And for the moment, until I can stand for longer periods of time, I'm feeling sort of useful.
