Neighbors on 4th of July Posted by Picasa

Can I skip this week

some weeks things just keep happening. Chris broke his arm and tore a tendon completely through. No insurance and he may have to have surgery. This was Wednesday night. Since then he reinjured same arm and may have broke two more bones, one in wrist and hand. Also should of had stiches and has splint on index finger. Left hand and he is right handed but may be out of work for awhile at least as he will not be able to work as a cook like this. He is going to go try and see what he can do -- against dr's orders of course. But when you live paycheck to paycheck you have to do something.
Was my last week at work for a while. Am taking a leave of absence for mental health reasons. Started seeing a new primary care dr and the changes he has made in my basic medications have been good and I am already seeing an improvement. It is nice not feeling I should never have been born or wishing I was dead all the time, ---- I knew it was side affects of other med, but until I could get a dr to help me get everything straightened out I was sort of at the mercy of the system. It was one of those meds you can't just stop taking or it makes you even more messed up. Hopefully the new one will help, if not he plans on monitoring better and working it out. That is a good plan. I am also glad to see him work so closely with my other dr's on everything to see what is going on and find what is the best treatent for me. And least this week hasn't been a total bust.
Bought myself a nice new camera so hopefully will have some wonderful new pictures to share soon. Will post one of my neighbors horse and pasture. I like the picture. Little country and homey. Look for the flag. Fits the fourth of July week this past week well.

Petticoat Socks

Currect Progress photo of my Petticoat Socks. Am using Wildfoot yarn in Rhapsody colorway #SY-200. Pattern is at I have seen many people do this in pastel colorways and thought I would do this in something much different. I am really liking the results. I finally found needles I really like for the purl 3 together. EZY-KNIT they were made a long time ago and I got some from my aunt who got them from my grandmothers knitting needles. the ponts are perfect for this and the needles are steel so not bendy and as I am a tight knitter this is a must. flexible plastic needles while some have great points drive me nuts. Pattern is originally written for two circs. I use dpns, but easy to make adjustments. Since so many have gotten used to making the adjustment to patterns other way it s only fair for some of us to make our turn. Besides after having done it bothe ways, it isn't hard to adapt. You just go round and round after all.
