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.
