I've been busy knitting socks for the rheumatology nurses and was able to take this little lot in last Monday as I was hooked up to an iv all week for round two of my immunoglobulin infusions. I managed to knit 6 pairs as well as a pair of mitts for the ward sister who gets really cold hands. They were very well received so I'm going to knit more as not everyone got a pair this time. The little gift tags are a free download from Winwick Mum's blog and you can find them here
if you're interested. They add a nice touch and are handy to note down any washing instructions.
I managed to do some knitting while I was getting the infusions. It depended on whether the cannula was in a knit-friendly position or not. Luckily I had a good book on my kindle so I didn't get bored. I had medication to try to reduce the side effects this time before each day's infusion and it was run at a much slower rate which also helped. I drank lots of water to keep myself hydrated at it seemed to work as I haven't had anywhere near the side effects I experienced last time. I made some progress on a pair of scrappy socks. I'm using up leftovers of yarn and they are going to be very colourful!
I sorted lots of leftovers and some minis that I'd received as part of a swap on Instagram a couple of years ago and more or less did a lucky dip for the next colour. Flo has wanted to help with the yarn choice this weekend too!
I'm taking part in a scrappy socks KAL which is running on Instagram throughout March and April so I may manage to churn out another pair in between knitting socks for the nurses. I have so many scraps, it feels good to be using some of them up. What do you do with your leftover yarn? xxx
