Falling off the planet...

Ok so that surgery the first of November that was supposed to be a simple overnight hysterectomy with 1-2 weeks of recovery was pretty disastrous. Suffice it to say I had complications, I was in the hospital for 8 days, left without a belly button but instead had a large open wound in that place and took eight exhausting weeks to recover. On the other hand I absolutely LOVE my hormone patch!

I thought I could get a lot of knitting done during my recovery. Well, I did (more on that later) but not the first 2/12 weeks. I was just to tired to do much but watch TV. Even reading was exhausting. But I managed to complete two fun fur scarves, one for my niece and one for a friend's daughter. I completed another scarf for my mom as well as a cabled pillow for her for Christmas. And I also managed to make an Ann Norling Fruit cap in purple and green for my other niece. I really will have pictures of all of these soon since I took a lot over the holidays.

I'm finally back doing the Fiber Trends sock...heel is turned, gusset complete, finished foot decreases, so I'm working on the foot itself. It was to complicated to concentrate on during my recovery. I really messed up the heel turn and had to FROG away but now it is going smoothly. Reading a pattern on Tilox is a Bad idea!

That's all for now. Since it's December and Christmas is over, it's tome to sort out the yarn stash so that's today's project!

Oh dear...sounds like you've had a rough time of it. Hope you are doing much better today. I was just browsing thru the southern knits blogring and your title caught my attention. I was in the Navy several years ago.

Anyway, just wanted to say hi and happy knitting.
