the stars align


For the last few days I haven't had much luck. Not knitting-wise, and not otherwise. Things took a definite turn when I slipped on the stairs at the train station and sprained my ankle on my way to work Monday morning. Ouch!

But it's Wednesday now and the news is all good. The X-Rays show no fractures. With a couple of days of rest, elevation and icing, the swelling has gone done considerably so that I can now walk slowly - although stairs are still a tedious and painful ordeal. And within a few days my left foot should be one big purple and brown bruise.

Speaking of purple and brown, I've moved onto this Misty Highlands colourway of Wandering Cat Alley Cat sock yarn. The pattern is Leyburn Socks and I don't think I could be any happier with how this is knitting up. See, the stars have realigned and my luck is back - knitting-wise and otherwise.
