Knitting and healing!
Hello - I'm back! And look how handy my knitting is right now. The day I had my surgery, at hospital in bed I started knitting another Calorimetry from a skein of self made handspun yarn I have had in my stash for a while. I went home the next day in the afternoon and then I had finished it. One of the nurses was rather interested, so I gave her the pattern. This one is so perfect for covering up my bandage. And it will be nice when I remove the bandage, too. Covering up the scars and the space with no hair.
A wooden heart button was added. It is one of my favorite buttons. I really like the wooden ones.
My daughter tried it on, too. Here, you can see I have been doing some knitting. That is about the only thing I have done the first week after surgery.
The yarn Lucca in 100% merino knitted up very nicely, and it is just as soft as kids like it.
I have also started on a Kidsilk Haze adventure.....For now I have 38 cm of pure heaven...I will say now more for the moment.
Realising I need a lot of things for my head I knitted myself a hat yesterday. The pattern is from the latest Knitty - Foliage. I made it from one of the skeins of yarn from Handpaintedyarn.com. I knitted on 6 mm and 5.5 mm needles. Next time I will try to make one in worsted weight yarn.
Here is the finished socks for my son to. I have had the first finished sock laying around since June. It was about time I made the second one.
And I have been shopping again. Two days ago, when I had to go to the drugstore I bought 15 skeins of a beautiful purple colored Eskimo. I just felt like making myself a purple jacket. The pattern is in my head. I am trying to make my own design for this yarn.
