Watching grass grow …
That’s about how exciting surgical recovery is, on a day to day basis … for me. [No offense to lawn maintenance operators …] Or, more accurately, waiting for skin to grow (incisions to heal) … exciting stuff, I tell you! Or, it would be, if that’s all I had going on.
Lucky for me, I have some other interests, and THANK GOD for the internet! Here’s what I’ve been up to lately. Chain maille. Really cool stuff. And, there’s a lot of it out there, from whole outfits (move over, Fifty Shades …) to jewelry. I like the jewelry. So, I’m playing with jump rings. I made a Helms weave piece … for what, I’m not sure yet. But, I made it!
And then, I moved onto a bracelet. I want to make one with other (color) crystals/beads, but – I still like it!
I’m still knitting, but it’s hit a wall … I may or may not totally rip out what I have done on this necklace, as I (think I must have) dropped a stitch. (Second photo) While I decide what to do – it sits … (last photo is the designer’s necklace from book)
And, then there is this scarf. I like the pattern a lot! But, it’s knit in length, not width. Which means 450 stitches completes one stinking row … That is some slow moving knitting! It’ll be pretty when I get it done ~ someday …
In the meantime, with assistance (do not yell at me for over-doing, doctor!), I bottled some 5 dozen bottles of wine. So, at the end of the day – the party is at my house, since I can’t get in to my hot tub yet … Let’s see how long 5 cases of wine lasts. I think I read that wine helps skin grow, right ???
BTW – over 5 months smoke-free (applause) and still no water in my studio (WTH!?!) as we endure snowmageddon in Michigan … Time for more wine!!!
