It's good to be back...

I wanted to thank everyone for their thoughts and well wishes while I was away from my computer. I am feeling better. It has been a long hard road with a lot of ups and downs but I am feeling better now. The herbal supplements seem to be helping. I think the medications where making me more sick than the decreases were. The knee is still giving me trouble but I'm dealing with it. I will be getting my new brace soon so maybe it will be a little better. I am told this new brace should help reduce the pain some...Boy I hope they were right.

I haven't finished the garter stitch shawl yet. Tonight is UFO night so I will work on it for a while. I will finish it someday. I just got bored with it, the color and stitch pattern. I have started a new project that has inspired me to knit again. I am working on my first pair of socks. I am having a lot of fun with them. Several months ago I purchased a couple of ball of Lion brand Magic Stripes Sea Blue color. I had hoped to learn to make socks someday. My local craft store had it on clearance. I was looking for something last week and came across these two balls of yarn and decided to give it a try. I only had the pattern on the wrapper so I decided to go for it. I have since purchased yarn and two sock books and can't wait to start my next pair. I have one sock done down to the decreases for the toe and have started the first two inches of the second sock. While making the first I forgot to move the stitch markers to the point where you start the toe decreases so I thought I would work the second one and use it as a guide for finishing the first...does that make sense??? Anyway, I hope to borrow a camera to get so photos to share with you. It sure is good to be knitting again!!!

Happy knitting!!!
