Has It Been A Week Already....

...I spent the last week with sick kids. All three of them have been to the pediatrician, 2 of the 3 are on antibiotics and feeling better, the 3rd is all viral and just has to wait it out. I would much rather they all needed antibiotics, at least they feel better much faster when they have something bacterial that can be treated with medicines. And with the puny kids comes all the extra hugging and cuddling which leads to a sick mommy.... of course the viral stuff. We have gone through a lot of kleenex in the last week and a lot of hand soap too.

The little knitting I have done in the last week has been on a pair of socks for my brother. I have a wonderful brother.... but gosh he has big feet. He wears a size 13 shoe which = a really long foot. I was worried about yardage so I knit the heels and toes in black. I also knit a short row heel so I wouldn't use a lot of yarn for gusset decreases. I have enough yarn left over that I now wish I had made the legs longer. I just have the toe to finish on the second one. I know he will enjoy these. He wore out the last pair I knit for him.

I worked a little on the blue Knit picks sock too while waiting in Dr's offices. Not a finished sock yet but soon. Once I get the toe finished on H's sock, these will see a little more knitting time. The driving daughter would really like to have this pair. She keeps letting me know just how nice they will look on her feet. She is too funny.
That seems to be all the news I have to share this week. The week almost slipped right by me without a post. Hopefully a little more knitting for next week. Have a wonderful weekend all!!!!

Hope everyone feels all better soon! It's no fun being sick. There's a bad cold/flu going around here lately.

Both pairs of socks look fabulous!
