I finally managed to get myself, the socks, and the camera outside at the same time.
I'm loving them so far! I'm doing them two-at-once with the magic loop method, which is my preferred way to amke socks. I'm going to attempt a heel flap on this sock, whcih will be something new for me since I've only done heel flaps top-down.
I'm really enjoying these so far. I took them with me to the doctor yesterday they kept me occupied in the waiting room.
Speaking of the doctor, the $80 eye drops have done their job! I'm not longer crusty and red in the eyes, thank goodness!! It was hurting to blink. The diagnosis was allergic conjunctivitis, which is non-contagious pink eye. The bad part is that I'm still wearing my glasses. I never wear my glasses. I hate glasses. Not only are they always dirty, but I just flat-out don't see as well. I use my peripheral vision a LOT, and I'm usually turning my eyes instead of my head to glance sideways, and with glasses I can't see well if I'm not looking straight forward. Sigh.
Thank you so much Opal, Penny, Kay, Taueret, Diane, Romi, N. Maria, and Dawn for your comments and suggestions! It really helps to know that others have gone through this and found solutions.
