Paper Gowns and Knitted Socks

I have reached another adult milestone, my allergies have changed. I have been miserable for months with clogged sinuses and ears. So I am trying a hybrid ENT and Allergy practice. They wanted to test my reactions so I did a full fledged skin test for the first time in 15 years. So there I sat in a paper gown DESPERATELY trying not to itch, so I knit!

I’m still on my second Punch Bug Vanilla Sock. I think *maybe* I have added another color stripe since I last showed you all. But this is my travel purse knitting that only gets worked on outside of the house.

The nurse was very complimentary of my knitting and then exclaimed “Whelp, you are allergic to ALL of Kansas!”. To which I responded, no shit! And she was kind enough to slather me in Benadryl and give me a sample Zyrtec. These socks might see some mileage now that I will be getting allergy shots every three weeks where I need to wait 20 minutes to make sure I don’t die.

Silver linings I guess? Happy Knitting!!
