I can knit socks because the shorter needles don't get
caught in my sling.These are going to be bed socks for me. The yarn is Regia 'Baby Smiles' 4ply. 75% wool, 25%polyamide, so machine washable. Sold in 50g balls which I bought from Wool Warehouse.
I try to keep myself doing something in the evenings as it keeps me from fancying something to eat. Yes I am still trying to lose weight. At the moment I am not losing,
I am not gaining but not losing.
But the start of 2017 has not been a good year for me, I have been more ill in these first few months, than I have ever been. I've had visits to A&E, the out of hours Dr, and my own Dr who is very nice and umpteen blood tests. Some very unpleasant blood needles stuck into me, but when you get older, you are much more likely to tell Junior Drs very loudly when they are sticking needles in you that hurt. And I did, very loudly!! My Dh was wincing with my every yell. I have certainly had my money's worth of the NHS and I can't praise Basildon hospital enough. Very good care and very nice Drs and nurses, albeit the junior one I first saw needed to practise taking blood on someone else!! I am beginning to feel better.
As well as not being well, our house buying and selling fell through, when the people at the bottom of the chain dropped out the day before contracts were to be exchanged, so we had to cancel our removal firm booked for 31st January. There is another buyer but of course we have to wait for them to go through the house buying process. But we will move in the next month.... hopefully.
