Wash day! Socks that is. I wash my hand knit wool socks before I put them away for the summer and then I wash them again to get them ready for the winter. Today was the day!
I heard someone say you could wash them in the machine on cold especially if you didn't have an agitator. Well, I tried it last year and was very disappointed...........here's the difference between hand washed ....
and machine washed..........see all the "nubs" on the machine washed socks? Just a reminder for any newbie sock knitters out there....and don't ever put them in the dryer!!!
Today I started my eye drops in my right eye for cataract surgery on Wednesday. 2 different drops each 3 times a day 5 minutes apart. They are an antibiotic to ensure you have a "clean" eye before they do surgery....we do not want any infection! I found out you are awake but they give you an IV that relaxes you and you don't remember a thing! Good! I also found out they replace your lens with an artificial one....I just wanted to ensure it wasn't from a pig or from China....lol!
I ran to Walmart again as I forgot a few items, picked up a Christmas present and also another skein of yarn! Woo Hoo!
I hope you are having a great Monday!
Good luck on Wednesday!
You will have to shave those socks!
I'll be praying for you on Wednesday.
Do you hav a sweater shaver? I bought one from Hershnerrs but I do know that they are available on Amazon and maybe even Knit Picks
Wishing you a wonderful week of beng able too very well.
Blessings and hugs,
I hope all goes well today, Sam. My sister had surgery on both eyes and was thrilled with the results! I am so looking forward to knitting again - if only I could find my yarn! LOL.
Those are some lovely knitted socks! I'm not a fan of machine washing any hand-knitted item but I know folks who do. Hope the eye surgery went well!
