Sweet Surrender


Yesterday was awful. Not only was my back still out, my whole body felt like I had been hit by a truck. I even thought about taking a Covid test just to make sure but I was in too much pain to get up and do it. In spite of the misery I got the Lofotens finished after taking a Tylenol and a morning and an afternoon nap.

While I was feeling halfway human I also started an assembly line for the Audun squares. I do better when I do a whole lot of one row. If I don't, I make a lot of mistakes. This crochet thing doesn't come naturally to my brain-not that much does anymore. 

On Friday I managed to get this far on the Advent sleeves. Doing them two at a time is the way to go. Like the Audun squares, it helps to repeat things a few times. That second sleeve just flies by as I have the pattern already in my head. I have no idea what today will bring but I hope it will be better than yesterday. Yesterday was pretty darn terrible. From head to toe, this old body has just about given up. It was the first day in nine weeks that I could't fight the mites and I am hoping they got the message a while ago and have vacated the premises. We'll see. 


  1. The socks are gorgeous!! Hope you are feeling better this morning.

  2. Oh I'm sorry that you've felt so bad Debbie, but my goodness, you did get a lot of stitching done. It all looks great. I love crochet. I only wish there were more hours in the day to knit and crochet. I never seem to have enough time.

  3. Knitting and crocheting, too; you are one talented lady! Hope your back is at least some better today.

  4. We hold stress in our bodies and you've had a pile of stress lately! You've created some good items which has to help!

  5. Oh no! I'm so sorry you are feeling so poorly and had such a rough day. I'm once again way behind on blog reading and am catching up in reverse order so I'm hoping you did some kind of crazy activity that overworked your body and you aren't actually sick or injured. Despite feeling so awful, you got some nice stitching done!
