I've Recovered!!!!!

After a few days of rest, hot pads, hot tubbing, and serious humiliation, I have recovered from my recent fruit beating, and have finished one sock in the stretchy yarn
which I think might actually work with this pattern.  I hope so--I have 4 more pairs of socks worth of this yarn.  

Feeling thoroughly sorry for myself, I also started a new lace scarf
which I like in theory, but will probably frog & restart because the pattern has a 1-stitch stockinette border on each side that I want to get rid of, and I think I'd like the scarf a bit thinner and with a little bit bigger bottom border.  I want it to be a little scarf to tie around my neck when I wear the new tan microsuede ensemble since the decorative stitching thing didn't work out, and I really can't wear tan without looking like some sort of faded banana.  

Speaking of fruit, yesterday I was even able to successfully cut up 5 trays of apples to dehydrate without any apple arse-kicking, so later today I'll be doing more trays and even a few jars of pickles--hopefully without incident, although those late-season cucumbers do get a bit mouthy at times........
