Just two and a half pairs of socks were knit in Socktober but my excuse is that all my free time has been used up working on the chapter, being ill and being busy busy. The highlighter socks as I’ve named them were great fun as they attracted a lot of attention!
I’ve called these Quantum of Socks because I finished this one in the cinema watching Quantum of Solace on Friday. I’m putting them aside for the moment so I can knit up some Noro Kureyon sock in honour of Norovember.
My other Norovember project is a multi-directional scarf which Robin kindly sent me the directions for after I admired the ones she had knit on her blog. It is a wonderful, addictive quick knit. I still have a lot of editing to do on the chapter before it has to be in so Norovember may end up the way of Socktober but it’ll all be over next week.
Ariel is doing really well at the moment with her concoction of tablets although she is really hungry. We can only give her one pouch of cat food a day because any more would put strain on her heart so it is heartbreaking when she cries for me food which we can’t give her. Apart from that she seems to have put on weight and is most definitely allergic to tuna so that explained why her fur was falling out. Thanks to Jeanne for mentioning allergies to chicken and tuna to me. The photo is from earlier in the summer before she got so ill.
