Hello everyone. Thanks very much for all the well wishes. The knee surgery went well. I got home after 1 night in hospital. My knee is swollen to the size of a small cantaloupe melon. It's been 4 days now and I've got bruising all over the back of my legs. It's a lovely purple shade at the moment and I'm sure it'll go through the whole colour spectrum. I won't gross out anyone with a photo.
But I will show you some progress of my next project. I'm knitting the Prairie Tunic from Interweave Knits Spring 2006. This is after 1 day of knitting. I did have a lot of time to knit - waiting for surgery, after surgery in hospital, recovering at home. I have made a startling discovery - I would make a lot of progress if I didn't have children and didn't have to do any housework. So I am going to use this recuperation period wisely!!
Anyway, I'm making this in Jaeger Siena 4 ply in an Ice Blue shade. The pattern calls for 5 balls for the smallest size but I only have 4 balls. So, I have decided to make it slightly shorter (I'm not that tall in any case!). Here's a closeup of the lace pattern.
I would show the photo but blogger is not cooperating.
I did have some very good news today. I received an e-mail from Jeanie letting me know that I had won a prize!! I was in the draw for completing both Orangina and Somewhat Cowl at SKC
and I won!! The prize is this. It's really made my day. WOW!!
