We've had quite a chilled out and lazy Christmas break. Unfortunately I came down with an ear infection on Tuesday and after 3 days of feeling very sorry for myself I visited the doctors and was given some strong antibiotics and some lovely painkillers. I'm feeling better now and actually functioning rather than just lying in bed sleeping or crying from pain. I can do childbirth without pain relief but ear infections are much worse for me :-S
I've had a bit of a casting on session so I've got some new projects to show you in a bit. Today I've just got a quick photo of the socks I made for my Mum. I gave them to her on New Year's day when we visited and she took this photo of them
I think she's pleased with them and they fit well which is good. I used the Rye pattern and a fish lips kiss heel.
My Dad has been dropping hints about some more socks as the ones I made him he's finding hard to get over his heel. I used a gusset heel for them so would have though that would be fairly roomy. Any one have any suggestions?
Anyways, hope you all have a happy and productive 2016. I'm hoping to post later in the week with some photos of my new WIP's. I've missed this little blog space of mine so it's nice to be feeling well enough to start posting and knitting more often :-)
