Sock It Up...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

When I fell a few weeks back I hurt myself quite badly.  I did not break or fracture any bones but did twist several muscles and tendons in my lower back.  Unfortunately, this area has known trauma previously.  I have been going to physio for the past few weeks, but at times the back spasms  are unbearable (I used to get albeit painful spasms but not as painful as the ones right now).  I have spent most of today curled up with my heating pad in a half sitting/laying position.  Since I cannot quilt I have been knitting all the while telling myself I can Sock It Up (the pain). ☺

I have finally been successful in finishing one sock from my September subscription of Yarn Crush!

These socks have taunted me for quite a while.  I had to restart and take apart several times and then finally got the promo code to get the update pattern.  Once I got the updated pattern and got my head wrapped around knitting toe up socks (previously not a fan - might become one) it was no difficulty getting this sock finished.  I did not do the intricate lace stitch on the back as although I have farm girl sized calves my ankles are quite small and I find that knitted lace socks do not stay in place so I knitted the back plain!

I am quite excited to start on the next one tomorrow.  

Hope this inspires your own creativity...
