a few WIP
I've been a bit busy lately. We went camping last week and did a couple of small hikes. I lost my footing on the second hike, fell, skinned up my shin and have cellulitis so I've been hobbling about like Quasi Moto and taking antibiotics and trying to keep off my leg as much as possible. Fortunately I worked on Monday (my leg was swollen and red when I left Monday night) and have not had to work all week until tomorrow so its given my leg a little time to recuperate before I have to go abuse it some more.
I've had some issues going on with my estranged father. He's been hospitalized and I'm his next of kin and the only living relative they could find so now I'm being bombarded by the hospital several times a day with questions and requests for consent and I haven't even talked to the man in several years. Its been a rather stressful ordeal.
I did start the log cabin sock from Holiday Handknits while we were camping and have a picture of it. I'm not sure who it should go to yet. I also contacted headhuggers.org with a pattern I designed for the Harlot show and the lady there wanted me to make another hat using lighter colors so you could see the stitches better. So, I went and got some completely different yarn than the original since the original yarn didn't come in any lighter shades and I'm not happy with the beige "fluffy" yarn I used. I guess I'll go today and see if I can come up with some other yarn that works better and see what I get.
