Busy with baby steps …
I’m still a knitting-maniac while I wait not-so-patiently to be feeling better. Here are my latest quick-knit projects.
And, I tried my hand at chainmaille (jewelry style, of course) … I like it. So, I’ve been surfing for much needed supplies and equipment (cuz I have too much time on my hands)!
I’m also gathering supplies for beaded knitting projects (thanks to this book).
I made it out to the studio one time – for about two hours. I’m going through withdrawals! But, DH is claiming he can’t turn the water back on until our crazy cold Michigan weather warms up. (No water = no bathroom. This means I can’t hang out in the studio all day, like I want to …) The cold weather also means the (neapolitan mastiff) girls and I are having an ongoing slumber party, as it’s too cold for them too! Here they are (everyone except Izzy and Olivia – who are sleeping on the other side of the room), ‘watching TV’ with me … The snoring is amazing!
In the meantime, I’m seeing my surgeon frequently. I am hopeful the stitches can come out this week (3 wks post surgery) … we’ll see. Things are healing, just not the way the doctor predicted/outlined, which means I’m not moving as quickly as I like. Apparently, someone (me?) missed the memo about delayed wound healing and laying low … Thank goodness for internet shopping (therapy)!
