.... no, it's not GO until tomorrow. I need tonight to double check the pattern and make one or two alterations. Things have gone a bit wrong this weekend as I've spent 3 days in bed. The socks were done befroe the weekend but ended up being smaller than I'd planned so I decided to do a larger size too. I prefer to knit up any change in sizes just to make sure it works. Well I started and .... well, let's just say I did enough to double check all my numbers and make sure all the numbers work for the heel/ gusset etc but the larger sock's not finished. Did no knitting at all on Saturday, only a tiny bit (heel flap) on Sunday and have done the heel turn and gusset today but it was a struggle.
What's wrong with me? Well, I've got an awful toothache - abcess. sTarted on Friday and wasn't too bad but went to dentish for antibiotics. Thought it was just a flare up of a severe abcess I had in January. By Saturday evenign my whole right side of my face was swollen and I felt rather ill. Swelling is finally starting to go down and the pain is under control but I'm feeling really ill. All I want to do is sleep and drink lots of water which is apparently what I'm supposed to do.
The pattern will be e-mailed out tomorrow morning. I'll get on to it as soon as the kids have gone to school. I'd actually planned to do it tonight as I wanted to go to a knitting club tomorrow, but the club is an hours drive away and there's no way I'm up to it, unfortunately. At least I'll be hope to do all the e-mailing.
I'll post a message on here when I've done the e-mailing. Get your needles ready. You'll need US size 2 or 2.75 mm (2.5mm will do though) needles and fingering weight yarn (yarn I used is from Bright Dyes (see sidebar) and it's similar to Opal).
