Yes, my first pair of socks from the single bed machine!
That second sock was so much quicker than my first attempts!
I remove the live stitches from the machine onto the circular needle and graft the bottom of the toe to the sole stitches; then I stitch up the side seam.
I did this work in several waiting rooms and in the car today.
( An hour to do all of the machine work and just under an hour to graft and seam.
I am sure I will improve that time as I get more familiar with the process, too. )
Not surprisingly, I loved every minute of it!
After the doctor appointments, we went out to eat again and then drove on the beach.
We saw this shrimping boat and watched it as it headed back after a day out fishing.
It was a balmy 81F outside, no bright sunshine so it was utterly relaxing to drive along,
watching the sea birds, listening to the waves and unwinding inside and out.
There were a lot of these areas taped off--turtle nest sites!
A few months from now, there will be volunteers guarding the newly hatched babies
as they rush to the ocean.
We headed back to the access road and then home.
A very wonderful evening to close out the day.
WOUND UPDATE--DON'T LOOK IF YOU GET SQUEAMISH!
This is the wound at the doctor's today.
It still looks miserable until you realize that the pink skin around the wound
is the area that used to be the size of the open wound--so we have seen it shrink by 50%.
