- Pattern: Open Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch.
- Yarn: Premiere Yarns Serenity Sock Yarn in color Chili (although to me they look more like Christmas candies!)
- Needles: Size US 2 dpn's
- Made for: Me!
- Pattern notes: Overall I'm really happy with this pattern. This was the first time in making socks that I carried the pattern all the way down the instep to the toes, and even though it was a little tedious, I like the look (we'll see if I like the feel when I wear them with shoes! LOL). I also opted for a three-needle bind off for the toes because I loathe kitchener stitch/toe grafting. This is also the reason my next project is socks from the toe up with a provisional cast-on/short row toe. =)
In other news...well, there's not a lot to report.
I'm a little, OK a LOT melancholy and weepy tonight. I don't know why. I have felt on the verge of tears all night long and can't really put a finger on the reason, aside from some frustration with the way some things are going. Namely:
- Being indefinitely in a holding pattern regarding TTC.
- My husband being out of work since last Christmas, with only one job offer that didn't pan out because of his disability (severe vision impairment).
- My prayer ministry forum going absolutely nowhere. I know it's new, and I know that it hasn't really had a chance to take off, but I felt such a calling to do this, and I'm beginning to question whether it was really what God wanted me to do. I mean, you put your heart and soul and time into creating something and it goes nowhere...it's just kind of depressing.
- Being changed crews at work (which means I am going back on nights starting Monday, will be on nights for two weeks, then back to days for a month unless I get changed again. You wouldn't think so, but such changes take a toll on a person).
I know these things are out of my control, so I know I shouldn't get worked up about them, but sometimes you just can't help it. If you are the praying kind, say a few extras for me, OK?
