I'm back...

I know you've been wondering why I have been MIA... long story short... I have been having back issues and have really only been laying on my side... very hard to knit this way I must say. But in the last few days I have been working on these lovelies:

Nice huh? Boy the finished one fits great too! I can't wait to finish these for the sixsoxKAL and put them on my feet!

Non-knitting content:
As for my back. I have always had issues with my lower back and over the last three weeks it has been acting up. I really didn't do anything out of the ordinary. And last Sunday I tried to go grocery shopping figuring I would walk slowly through the store and I was unable to stand up straight by the time I got home. I won't tell you what cam out of my mouth as I tried for ten minutes to get into my car! So I went to the Chiropracter on Monday afternoon after spending the day walking sideways. I was not comfortable sitting, leaning was ok... so Tuesday I had x-rays done and there is some severe disk degeneration. Now it is Friday and I can walk a bit better, but the muscles are tight (as are my pants after not being mobile for days!) No final answers I have an appointment on Monday so hopefully things will go a bit better then. Sadly I feel like I have been complaining as of late, but today is a good day!

I am so sorry to hear about your back. Take it easy and don't over do! I've been wondering if everything was OK.
Your socks are great! What a cute idea. Are you planning to continue with the Six Sox KAL? I am. They have had some fun patterns!

Maureen, the socks are fabulous. Hope the back eases up soon and you get some relief. I've had a couple flareups in my back on occasion, and it's very debilitating. Good wishes flying to you as we to speak.
