Reprise of PF (sigh)
While my plantar fasciitis has never gotten a lot better, this weekend, and again today, it's been aggravated severely by missteps. I've spent a lot of time on ice tonight, and am beginning to think I'll have to return to the podiatrist before the week is out. That doesn't make me happy in the least. I've already spent enough money on this thing, and I've much better things to do with it, ya know? Yarn, anyone? How about Knitpicks Harmony straights? Or perhaps a set of Addi Lace needles in 16-inch circulars for socks? Those pointy tips would be great! Or patterns? I know - a new book?.
But not. Ok. I'm grateful I have it to spend on my foot. Really, I am...
In an attempt to "make it all better" I sat in front of the TV tonight, gorging myself on cable news shows, and knitting.
I finished these!
Yarn: Regia sock yarn in the Florence colorway
Needles: Harmony size 1.5, 2 circs
Pattern: my "plain vanilla" with picot edge
Time to complete: August 31, 2008 - September 22, 2008
Someone else wanted to "help" with the photo shoot...
I hope you can see how close I came to matching these stripes - even on the heels!!! (ok...there's a brown cat tail in there...but I think you can see them)
So. I felt so accomplished, and I knew I couldn't just sit (ok, I could have worked on a WIP, but...) with my foot on ice watching the talking heads and not have SOMETHING in my hands, and I wanted something new:
Habitat is OTN! I've finished the ribbing and will begin the pattern tomorrow.
I couldn't resist this belly shot.
Of course, no sooner had I taken it, I got up to get a drink of water, and came back to my chair to step on her foot. She had moved UNDER the chair while I was gone and I didn't know it.
She's forgiven me now, but I felt so bad to have hurt HER foot when mine hurts more than enough for both of us.
