It’s too hot to knit….well almost! Plus the contest winners :-D

Wow is it hot out. I’ve been knitting on my Kaylee socks but not getting too far because my hands are sweating so much that it’s hard to knit! I think after I finish writing this post I’m going to take my knitting outside because I think there is now a bit of a breeze.

Kaylee sock, my cybook and my white cane sitting on the table at StarbucksMaylee had her rush protocol immunotherapy (where they give her her allergy shot every half hour for a total of 7 hours to get her to the maintenance dose) on Thursday and it went fantastically well! So her next shot is on the 3rd then two weeks after that and then every month. Gee I wish that they had this option for humans, I’m still at every week, however I am on the last bottle and very close to my maintenance dose. It was very strange to be without my guide dog and using my white cane again. I did some knitting in a local coffeeshop J.J. Bean on Commercial Drive then headed to Starbucks to meet Mini-me to give her some money to go to a movie with friends. While at both coffeeshops, I worked on my Kaylee sock and got to the beginning of the heel. Knitting helped a lot to make those hours go a wee bit faster waiting till I got an update from the vet tech on how Miss May was doing.

So I have managed to finished two pairs of socks for SOS 2008 so far. Both following Fleegle’s Toe-up Sock Pattern. (rav link and non-rav link)

Well I’m sure you all have been waiting for this day and post not because of the wonderful socks I managed to knit and complete in one week but today being the day I post the winners of my blogiversary contest!
