i interrupt the central coast vacation posts with a crafty update! besides gallivanting around california i have been busy in the crafty sector. i'm finding it very hard to focus on the this post but i'm trying to get my mind off the fact that i have the worst case of poison oak i've ever had. short of peeling off my skin or killing myself i've tried all remedies i know of- except a trip to the doc for a heavy duty cortisone treatment-which i'm sure i need. i've been suffering for a week straight-it's so bad i have the chills and feel like shit. if no improvement by monday it's off to the doc i go!
i forgot to add the benedryl to the assortment-didn't touch the itching but gave me a wonderful heroin type nod that allowed me to sleep at night. man that stuff is potent! for the safety of everyone around me i only took it night. had to stop taking it....making me weird out.
before looking like a leper rowan and i made ceramic buttons at a ceramic studio at willow springs-it was great fun and i want to make more! thanks for your guidance penelope!
they look like candy huh? here's a better look:
i finished the baby vest made with my hansdpun merino yarn.
away from home i was able to finished my tidepool socks.
in case you weren't paying attention-i actually finished a pair of socks-yes, a pair-2 socks!!!! instead of getting bored and never finishing the 2nd sock i persevered. you can't see me-but i'm doing a little happy dance:) i love them so much i have to post another picture. love the picot edging.
the yarn is from hazel knits in the sweet crush colorway. washable merino-yum!
being that the colder weather should be heading our way i immediately casted on another pair of socks-worsted weight on side 3 needles- my favorite needle size for socks-i hate knitting with tooth picks! this yarn is a washable merino as well, from orange flower.
geez- what a crappy picture! will update soon-promise! before i go slather my body with slime i wanted to show you what grew in our garden this year-and we didn't even plant it!
what a treat!!!
