When I was talking to my Lovely Mum on the phone last night I mentioned that my finger joints had been sore, probably thanks to this spell of damp cold weather. Arthritis runs in the family so I do take a few supplements to help. Mum asked if I've been knitting recently as it helps keep her joints mobile. I had to admit I haven't knitted anything for aaaages! I rummaged around in my yarn drawer and found my wee portable project bag, thinking I might have a part knitted sock in there. To my surprise I found an already completed sock with a second one just needing the toe shaping! I think these were the ones I started when I was travelling to Australia last Christmas (2019). Just a Regia 4ply sock yarn. I finished the toe shaping while watching a cheesy Netflix movie and wore my new socks today!
I also found 2 skeins of fancy sock yarn. The turquoise one was bought at the infamous Stirling Knit Camp in 2010 with my friend MrsL from Anarchy for One blog. Now she's a prolific knitter!! 🧶
I cast on this morning while waiting for a parcel to be delivered. It's knitting up beautifully soft. Just plain old vanilla socks, nowt fancy. I also found a completed grey man's sock with the second one just ready to start on the heel. DS has claimed them when they're finished. 🧦
So I'm keeping my fingers busy to ward off arthritic pain and it also stops me wanting to snack! Win win!! 😆
