knitting socks

Yes, I am going to officially become a 'sockie.' With some help from youtube vids and following the directions on the inside of the yarn wrapper, I am actually doing it.

Maybe it's true that you're never too old to learn. Wouldn't it be nice if I was too old for cysts and infected blisters. Yes, I have both. Hence the reason I am home 'sick' today from work. My friend covered my shift, so no worries. The same friend suggested I get some prep H for the cyst. It will shrink it from it's present size (about as big as Alaska) down significantly (to let's say,only the side of Rhode Island) without having to go to the gyno office and deal with all the embarassment.

In the mean time, until I can get over to the drug store, I will be here knitting my first ever sock. Yay.

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.

I am where I do and am not where I don't. Not what I was or will be, just 'me'.
