Fo Friday: Charybdis Socks

Well the last couple of weeks have not been something to write home about. My DH and DS packed me off to the hospital emergency department, having lost the battle with pain control.  Thank goodness for socialized medicine here in Canada.  The staff at our local hospital were incredible! My meds had totally wiped out my stomach, squeeze, sweating crying and totally out of control. They treated me so kindly. I was so embarrassed, my only excuse is that anyone would lose it when in excruciating pain with nausea. That was Tuesday, things are slowly improving. Still in my wheelchair, hope to be up and about sometime next week.

Meanwhile I have been spending my time designing a sock pattern I origionally referred to these as “The Sock to be Named Later”, well I settled on Charybdis Socks

Charybdis Socks

They are quick and easy to make, Top-down.

All you need to know is Long-tail cast on, knit, Purl, and k2tog.

They feature spiral toes and

Charybdis Socks – toe

Charybdis Socks – heel

And an after thought spiral heel.

I’m working on these for my Carry along forum’s Holiday Gift Kal.  These socks are intended for DH.

If you would like to knit a pair.  will be free to those who visit my Blog, all I ask is that you post the finished socks on Ravelry :0)

and rereading Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” as always a great escape!

FO’s 2012 = 54 + 1 = 55

Patterns from my own Library = 5

WIP’s 2012 = 4

Stash used 2012 = 66 + 1 = 67

Stash Purchased 2012 = 79

This is getting embarassing, not going to keep track of this number any more

 Books =  25 + 2 = 27

Take Care and cya next week

WIP Weds and Friday’s at Tami’s
