I’m back! On the computer at least. The surgery went very well and surprisingly quickly. As promised by my surgeon (who I love by the way, she is incredible), there has been little pain. Mostly, I’ve been tired. That kind of loopy in your head, I might fall over tired. I’m pretty good for a couple hours, then *BAM* it’s like I’ve had one too many glasses of wine.
As a result, I haven’t been doing much more than sleeping, reading, and knitting. Not a bad way to spend a few days, hun? And when it’s all over, I’ll be done! Truly done with all the surgeries. All the stretching. All the pain. I am so thankful that there are real options for reconstruction for breast cancer patients, and I love my new look, but it has been a long road and I’m glad to get a break from it all.
And I get to wear regular clothes!!!!!! Hee hee. I want to knit tons of low cut, curve hugging sweaters. No more stuffing a bra. Heck, with these silicone babies, I don’t even need to wear a bra. Yah!
Hmmmm..... now to find the right sweater pattern to celebrate...
In the meantime, I finished my felted clogs. They are still a bit wet, but I took a pic for you anyway. Here is pre and post felting:
I also started Dad’s beekeeper socks:
He gets to be the guinea pig for the men’s version of my sock pattern.
Tonight, I’ll be knitting away on this:
It is beautiful. I love it. I’ll tell you about it soon.
Becka has kept me posted on shop happenings. Seems we had quite a turnout for week 3 of Rogue KAL. Check that blog for pics.
Jocelyn brought her crazy sock in to show:
She combined Spunky with some other sock yarn to create this bit of whimsey.
Sarah has made another pair of fixation socks. These are called watermellon:
Oh, and Bec tells me that more copies of Charmed Knits have arrived. She went to the opening showing of Harry Potter last night and said it was fantastic. I won’t say anymore. Just go to the movie. Knit a scarf and some Dobby socks. Get ready for the book.
