Yep I am reviving the “Monday is for cleaning” routine. Actually I cleaned the house last week so that I could work on SOS08 without to many interuptions of the cleaning sort other than pick ups and laundry. But I figgered that if I finished up some stuff today and do the laundry tomorrow I could get more done on the Knitting front. The boys (Brian and Josey that is) help some IF I ask them too LOL!!
Most people who read my Blog and my Profile on Ravelry know I’m disabled. I dont hide it. But I also dont flaunt it either. I try to do as much as I can without causing a flare up, or without exhausting myself which includes letting Brian park wherever he can find a spot and walking to the store. Some days this is harder than others especially when it is hot out. The reason I am bringing this up is because of a comment on Ravelry in the Yarn Harlot fans group in the I have to disagree thread. The person said something about bein angry because of “obviously non-handicapped” people parking in handicapped only spots. Now I dont disagree that people do that, I know they do but…and I am just as guilty if those thoughts as she is, the person who is parking in the spot might have a disability that is like mine and isnt always visable. Can you tell if a person has lung cancer just by looking at them from a distance? You cant if they arent carrying an O2 tank or you arent right up close to them and listening to them breath. What about a Person who has difficulty standing and walking long distances and is getting groceries they might be leaning on their cart through the store or using a store provided power/non power cart…again unless you know the person or see them later in the store with the above mentioned helpers you dont know. I do know that some people take advantage of another family members placquard/license plates (my MIL for example while my FIL was still alive and after) But we all need to reserve judgement on those that park like that unless we know for a fact that they arent disabled. I personally make the choice to try not to pull the disabled trick outa my hat unless I know that I’m gonna need the assistance it will bring.
Ok Rant over :-)
I got the second repeat done on the cuff of SOS Sock number 1 yesterday and 3 more repeats done on the foot of Blended Frog Scallopini. I have been working off and on on the DSS Soldier sock today when taking breaks from cleaning. I will work on it this evening while watching Star Trek TNG tonite. Tomorrow I will work on the second DSS sock and Illusions or Brian’s sock. I figure that I’ll work on SOS during the day and in the eve until all 3 pair are done I’ll work on the non SOS socks. I wanted to have atleast one of the 3 pr done before SOS started but oh well :-)
Thats all for today, I’ll try to get pics either tomorrow or Wed of the SOS and NonSOS progress and post em here and on Ravelry.
