They are done, finished, off the needle!!!
My lovely new socks are ready to wear!
And I love them so much that I know I am going to start a new pair today. Not sure if this makes sense to you, because it is just me being very happy that the Sock Block is the thing of the past.
I was so happy about finishing the second sock that I actually used it as a background for the new stitch markers I made.
Basically that is all I did yesterday. Knit that sock and made a bunch of new stitch markers for my Etsy Shop. Getting pest the Sock Block seem to have unblocked me on so many levels. I have not made anything new for my Etsy Shop in a long time. About six months ago when my hands were doing worse than ever I actually decided to close it. I was pretty upset since my doctor was advising some pretty heavy medications, with a whole bunch of unpleasant side effects. I decided to seek alternative, went on a strict diet and slowly started to feel better.
I could not bring myself to the point of closing my shop, instead I let it drift. I stopped updating it or promoting. If I had orders I was happy to make them, but I knew I had to make a final decision soon.
i guess making new markers means that I have made up my mind. My Chicken Stitches Etsy Shop is staying open.
I still have different kind of days, but I made my peace with the situation. And, as of past Tuesday I started physical therapy for my hands. I told the therapist that I am not worried about the pain, my goal is restoring maximal mobility. And I am willing to work hard too!
