WiP'n It!

Before I can talk about my WIPs, I need to show you my finished Soleil. I'll be blocking it tonight so I can wear it tomorrow. I'm very happy with it. It'll be a wardrobe standard I'm sure.

Look what I've picked up again. Finishing Soleil really gave me the push I needed to get past the color work on my Tomato sweater. I should get past the shaping in the next couple of evenings and then onto the neck and sleeves.

I'm still working on the socks for my Dad. I finished one of the socks in Cascade Fixation and have yet to cast on the second one. I usually cast on the second sock right away to avoid SSS, but I'll cut myself a little slack since I finished it last night and then picked up Tomato instead of casting on sock 2. I'll start sock 2 tonight. I also decided that his second pair will be in the Panda Cotton I got from the Loopy Ewe a couple of weeks ago. I have the first sock on the needles too.
To close the chapter on Kidney Stone 2, I saw the doctor. They can't use the sonic blasty thing to break it up and so it will either stay in my kidney forever or travel at which point we'll have to address the situation. No fucking kidding! The good out of all of this is that I have officially "fired" my urologist. I'll go to someone else when and if the need arises. And that's all I'm going to say about that.

Gratuitous Kitty Photo!

Do I get a treat now?

I am having the same problem with gaul stones. They told me to "wait until they become a problem". Whoopee. Cool sock. I wish I could get my husband to wear some color.

Love your new wardrobe staple!
and can't wait to see that tomato sweater finished- that is one of my fave colors.

All stitches crossed that that &%(#@ stone gets the hell out with a minimum of fuss for you- and kudoes for canning the asshat M.D.
