Knitting the Day Away...

Good Late Evening Internet Friends!

Yes, I am still up at this late hour.  Long story no point as one of my friends would say.

Yesterday I ended up enduring yet another and much worse asthma attack that sent me to the Emergency Department again.  This time I was fortunate enough to have a physician who took it seriously.  After a whack load of Bronchodilators a shot of Benadryl, an Epi-pen, and steroids I got to go home five hours later!  Breathing I might add!!!!  ♫

I had my loading dose of steroid in hospital, but had to go out today to get my prescription filled.  I went to get that filled and since we were all out of milk and I was going to be on a steroid I picked up a couple of jugs of milk.  That was an exhausting adventure.  

Got home took a nap, had some soup for lunch and crawled back into bed.  Steroids make me hungry so I have spent the day eating anything I can find.  Bolusing with insulin pump for the extra food I am eating and also for the steroid effect on my blood sugar.  Plus the steroids make you feel kind of twitchy inside so it is difficult to fall asleep.  I even tried listening to the meditation app that always makes me fall asleep and for the first time EVER was still awake when it was done.

So, since my craft room is all the way in the basement and that is a really far distance right now I did the only other thing that I can do while not moving; KNITTING!

This is the second of the socks that I am knitting for hubby:

This is the first of the socks that I am knitting with my March box of Yarn Crush:

 The skein of Tink Yarn is just too pretty for me to leave alone.  This afternoon I cast on for a pair of Cherry Lane Socks:

 I know this color is not cherry, but I love this pattern when I knit with solid colors ☺ It is a great pattern to work and always turns out well.  The patterns included with this kit were nice, but the cowl was just something I would never use....

Now off to find some more to munch on and then maybe I can get some sleep.  Since it is Wednesday as well I think I will link up with  Work In Progress Wednesday over at The Needle and Thread Network since I have not in a long time.  Check out some of the fun projects these crafty people are up to ☺

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

  1. Kathy, I hope you feel better soon. It is never a good when one's body decides to rebel.
    At least you have that lovely yarn to console you.
