I’m not going to lie, I started these bad boys in September of 2011 and I just finished them tonight (May 28, 2012). They sat on my bookshelf with the 2nd legwarmer started, for like 7 months. I got so sick and tired of seeing that WIP on my Ravelry page, staring up at me. It’s like it was mocking me. So I decided these needed to get done.

I don’t know if I mentioned this in an earlier post but I’m suffering from Mystery Disease. I’m having crazy upper abdominal pain, vomiting, and extreme fatigue (like I am exhausted walking to the fridge for a glass of water). I’ve never experienced anything like this before and the doctors still don’t know what is causing it. I’ve gone through a battery of tests, x-rays, and a freaking scope and still there’s no clear cause. It’s like if there’s a blood test that checks for the presence of two enzymes, I’ll only come back showing one. So they can’t rule that out but it’s not clearly that one thing. It’s so freaking frustrating. And I’ll can do is take these pain meds that don’t even make me feel fun and floaty, they just make my brain fuzzy, and the anti-nausea meds they give to chemo patients. And I will still throw up. Awesome. Long story short: UGH FML!

I had a particularly bad time of it this weekend. So when I wasn’t vomiting or sleeping, I needed to do some knitting to calm and center myself and take my mind off things. I picked this back up and decided I was going to finish it. And it was the perfect project. I already have it memorized and it’s easy to set it down, take a nap, and pick it back up. So yeah. Legwarmers! Now I get to put them away until fall/winter.
