Is it too Late to Say Happy New Year???



Trying to get my act together and do something besides knitting socks, got all my Christmas knitting finished in time...can not believe that but I did, but can not stop knitting, have knitted a pair of socks for RH and five more pair of slipper socks since Christmas. Have been under the weather since before Christmas, asked the Dr. if they had any new feet or a new head around as I really needed new one's but she said they had no spares so I better work with what I had, have got Plantar Fasciitis in my right foot, Dr. gave me some information on the ailment, reading it I see it is a common foot problem in sports participants....????...when was knitting declared a sports activity?? Have to get busy and finish sorting alpaca fibre to get to the mill, missed the alpaca run in August and they have another one in February but should have had the fibre there already. Bought some soft foamy type tile to put around my sorting table to stand on so hope it helps. Most of my fibre in in the garage and it has been so cold and windy with blowing snow have not wanted to go out there. Has warmed up a bit the last few days so after the last load of laundry is finished that is where I am going and see what more needs to be sorted so it can be taken to the mill and then should sort some llama fibre and get it sent off to another mill that has a dehairer. Before I know it it will be shearing time again, so better make some room.
Llamas and Alpacas are sure enjoying getting out of the barn to soak up some sun the last few days, was a long cold miserable stretch of weather, this is the first time we have been snowed in this bad since we moved up here in the hills.
