The Waiting Game

Today Daddio is having eye surgery and I needed something to take along to keep me busy. He also has four rechecks in the next few weeks so I have a lot of sitting time coming up in the near future. I decided to just make another pair of plain ribbed socks as I hate fiddling with patterns when I am out in public. This yarn also has very short color segments which makes a very frantic color pattern so simple is best.

I won this sock yarn in a KAL last fall so I decided to put it to good use.

It's from Abstract Fiber and while it was not something I might have picked out for myself, it will make a nice mindless project with a completely unknown destination. No pressure there.

After all, while waiting for the Old Man to come out of anesthesia, I will have more to worry about than my knitting.


  1. Sounds like a good plan. Plain ribbed socks are the most comfy anyway and I like the color! Hope it all goes well with the eye surgery.

  2. All that wait time will go by so much faster with mindless knitting. Wishing your dad all the best with his eye surgery.

  3. Simple knitting is best in thoughts situationist... much easier to get in a state of zen.
    Sending Daddio lots of good thoughts.

  4. Glad you have that knitting to get you through being such a good daughter....
    I do hope it all goes smoothly for him too!

  5. just catching up ...
    hope your Dad is recovering well from the surgery.
