I Will Survive

With the help of popcorn, an ice pack and a lot of Tylenol, I will get this knitting done.

I misplaced my tailbone. I went to chiro for an adjustment yesterday (off my regular monthly schedule, because something didn't feel right) and my sacrum was out of whack. So he thumped around and put it right (in whack?) but now I am super sore.

I have been sitting on an ice pack for an hour. Ten minutes is the recommended time. And I have most of an entire sock past the heel to knit. (I did buy a real live leather office chair last night as well - the folding chair I've been sitting on for years — call it inertia — is too low, too uncomfortable, and not a computer chair at all.)

The good news is that today I'm going to get my hair done. While it does mean giving an exorbitant amount of cash to Aveda, it also means I get plenty of knitting time while the dye is processing. I am convinced I have the best colourist in Nashville. She's absolutely fantastic at making my greenish-grey blonde hair into something that even my sister says is my best feature (and she's got this gorgeous chestnut hair that never needs anything).

So hopefully today while I'm processing I'll turn the heel on the prize sock and then I'll be able to get the instep done tonight and tomorrow. Or maybe I could just do the heel now, and put a movie on Superstar to keep me company.

And sit on my ice pack.

In the meantime, Sock knitters, this link is for you. I apologize in advance for all you won't get done today because of these links.

Ow - that sounds sooo painful. Hope you feel less sore soon. Thanks for the sock links! I'm going to resist following all of them right now...
