Catching Up

I seem to have been neglecting my knitterly duties here at Baadmedicine. I have been knitting and I have lots to show you....


BUT....


Ok, here's the thing. I'm due to give birth in a month. As a mother who is quite advanced in her pregnancy, I am starting to really feel it. My back gets sore, I'm tired, my hands are achy and swollen when I wake up. All of these things have taken a toll on my knitting. To keep you interested, I thought I'd dish out a finished project every few days.


The Project du Jour is ly Olympic Socks. There were designed by yours truly and knit for men's feet. I always aget a little nervous when I start a pair of men's socks because I know it takes a long time to finish a pair and it really is a big commitment. At the same time, I don't want to knit up plain socks for the men in my life. A little pattern every now and then is a good thing.


Therefore I present to you Faux Paw. They are men's socks with a linen stitch Argyle pattern that I think works fairly well with variegated sock yarns. You like it? Let me know.

You have no duties here you need to worry about. Your jobs include mothering a 2-year old, taking it easy and finish cooking the little one. That's it. Anything else is above and beyond.

But in the above and beyond category those socks are mighty fine! Love the way that texture peeps through the colourway.

I haven´t tried to knit men´s socks before, but your socks look great, so maybe I will knit a pair for my husband. His feet are always cold.

Take care of yourself and rest a lot before your baby is born.

I love those socks and desparately want the pattern. I also think that you have nothing to be sorry about. In fact, in case you need it, I'm offering my services as a fill in blogger in case you and T are too busy. Let me know if you need my services. I'm ready at a moments notice.

Having seen the socks in for reals, I can say that you are amazing.

Take it easy, keep cooking your bun. And remember that I'm always ready to cuddle tiny little people.
