Really. There has been a little knitting going on. Not much, but I did get the first FO of 2009 done.
Cowls are pretty easy for me right now – This is just something I made up – 2 x 2 rib, alternating every six rows. I had some Dream in Color Classy left over from my sons Turn a Square and this was perfect for using up the rest of that skein.
I wanted something a little bit more challenging, and yet not too difficult on the arm so I started this Forest Canopy Cowl – with some Manos Silk Blend from stash – I have two skeins of this. I’ll probably make another cowl with the other skein but in another pattern – Maybe Dragonfly Fire Cowl. I know, it’s a lot of cowls, but with the cold weather slamming in this week – I know I’ll use them over and over. And it keeps me knitting right now. Which is something I really want to do, but I also need to let my arm heal. Marathon knitting is not in my future right now.
I have 5 more weeks of Physical Therapy – the PT thinks I did more than just tendoitis – and that’s a little scary but it explains all the other symptoms I’m having. The PT is working and it is feeling better but I’m told it will be months before I can resume my “regular” activities.
Anywho, that’s enough of a pity party. I’m working on picking up socks here and there and knitting a few rows, taking an online Photography course, bringing exercising back into my day and that all should keep me pretty darn busy! I’m almost caught up on reading blogs – did a little housecleaning because a lot of those I had in my reader have been abandoned by their owners. I may not be commenting much – typing/arm thing, but I’m still reading and I appreciate all the comments and readers that have stuck around. Posting may be light, but I’ll make it here at least once a week to update and check in.
Knitting group was cancelled yesterday (by me, har har) because we had ourselves a lovely winter storm with nice, white fluffy snow! Love the snow. Don’t like the ice storm we had wednesday, but the snow – I’ll take that. DH is at the Giants/Eagles game today, my shopping trip with the younger son is done (wedding clothes for an upcoming family wedding, ack!) and I’m going to tuck in, knit a little, watch some TV, order some Chinese in and watch a movie with my boys. Hope you all have a relaxing day and a wonderful week.
I’ll leave you with this…..
