Recovering and Knitting

Thank you so much for all the well wishes on my surgery. I'm doing REALLY well and go back for my post op appt this coming Tuesday. I'm so glad to have that over with. I was really scared and so happy that I had a great support system to help me pull thru.

I tried to knit a lot during my week in a post-anesthesia haze but everything I started has now been frogged. The Eagles socks just weren't knitting up right and then I cast on for another pair of Charades but didn't like the yarn with the pattern. Urg.

I've cast on for a Christmas gift and I can't talk too much about it because the person it is for sometimes reads...welcome to "pre-holiday I will blog less than I already do because I knit so many gifts and most of the recipients read my blog"
at Wannabe.

This is the Melody Shawl by Morehouse Farms in HandpaintedYarn Laceweight Coral Rojo. Sarah inspired me to knit this and I have to say, I'm quite enjoying it. It will be my first time trying steaking too! This is my first official lace project so I'm glad it's an easier one. It was a bugger to cast on all those stitches and not twist them on the first row but after a few tries and a few needle changes (I went with Addis) it worked.

And of course, I HAVE to have a pair of socks to work on, I'm going to cast on for a pattern written by one of my fellow SnB knitters, blogless Tristan, called Fall Pinecone Pattern in this gorgeous Sunshine Yarns Superwash in Fall Leaves. I've had this in my stash for over a year and finally found the most perfect pattern to knit it up in.

And just because she is adorable....the Buggernut decided that her Cars needed to look out at the beautiful sunshine the other morning. Bet they didn't think they were getting the lovely view of the cat litter containers on the back patio when they signed up for that one. ;)

I'm hoping to be back this week with some progress pics...especially on the socks!

I love the car line-up shots! Kidlets are the greatest!!

I'm glad you are back on the blog lines and not in an anesthesia-induced knitting funk. Your itty-bitty booties inspired me to do that with all my leftover sock yarn. My daughters' Bitty Babies will thank you.

I love all the Cars. We're still in search of King. We can't seem to find him anywhere. Oh, and I see what you mean about the paint chipping off. I think Bug is harder on them than JD is!

Glad you are feeling well and back to knitting and blogging!! :) Don't fret about your first lace project - you will do wonderful and you will wonder why you were so scared of lace. :)

Both of those yarns are gorgeous. I just cracked up at the pic of all the cars lined up, like they're at the drive-in or something!
