Frog Ponds and A MittenTutorial



It's not easy being Green!

I had to jump into the frog pond with my Rapunzel sock. I was trying to knit this via the Magic Loop. The rnds. that began and ended with purl sts. gave me ladders. Then, I had dropped a stitch and the more I tried to retrieve it...the more it unraveled to the point where it couldn't be fixed. Trust me, it wasn't pretty. It just seemed easier to frog the whole thing and start over. (sniff)

A Mitten Tutoral: I saw this at
Knitting Nonni's blog and I thought that I'd share. It's a great Mitten Tutorial and a great way to use up your stash and a great charity idea!

Now excuse me while I go and dry off and shake the tadpoles out of my boot!

Showers and socks

Who knew that a shower could be so refreshing? Yesterday was my first shower since having surgery on my foot on June 1st. The surgeon's office said that I could take off my boot long enough to sit in the shower & bathe. I feel human again. While having my naked foot exposed, I noticed that my incision has healed nicely, however, I was quite surprised to see that all of my smaller toes have spread out to the max, completely extended! I'm not comfortable at all with the way they look and feel. I'm awaiting a call back from my Dr's. office.

I've just finished picking up sts. for the gusset of my Rapunzel socks (Ravelry link), so it's coming along. The weather is cool enough today that maybe I should pick up my white cardigan and work on that for a bit. Sock? Sweater? Hmm...
