WIP Weds: Progress

First I want to thank you for your support last friday. Things have settled down with husbands health. He is currently sporting a Heart monitor for the next 48 hrs. However Doctors have lifted his license and he depends on the car for a living. Life is becoming a little to interesting! My appointment went well. Just a medication adjustment and hopefully my seizures and tremors will be under better control. Meanwhile things are quiet… Thank Goodness!

Purchased a rather good looking sock knitting book today. Call it retail therapy :0) I like Melissa Morgan-Oaks approach to knitting. “2-at-a-time socks” is well photographed with helpful hints and a practice childs pair to knit as a walk through. Spiral bound hardcover, with charted in assorted sizes and gauge options, all in all a rather appealing book for sock knitters.

Note: I have been collecting up erratas on my knitting books for easy reference. This book published by Storey Publishing has corrections for pg 15, 16, 19, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 27, 35, 49 (chart) 58, 60, 67, 68, 70, 71, 72, 79, 83, 84, 85, 89, 103, 106, 110, 3 corrections on 112, 2 corrections on 113, 118, 129. (Totally disgusted, how can such a lovely looking book have this many corrections? (33+)

Look here for errata

    So good to hear that both of you are doing better!!! (E-hugs)

    That sock book is great retail therapy. 😀 I just picked up a copy a few weeks ago at Borders closing sale.

    It took me a moment to work out that mitten picture! The sock book looks good, I might have to have a look at that one myself 🙂

    That’s a gorgeous mitt, and double-layered like that should make them extra warm. But it must feel like making two pairs of mitts and then some!

    The mittens are amazing, such a clever idea.

    I hope all goes well with Hubby, and everything is 100% and he gets his license back ASAP

    I love your mitten. Hope all goes well with your husband. This has been a bad year for us as well. I understand your worries.
