Besides finishing the wrap, I can get out of a chair without help. I can sleep in my bed instead of a Lazy-Boy. I am a side sleeper, and gravity made side sleeping painful until this past weekend. I am no longer taking painkillers so no more K.U.I. (knitting under the influence.)
I am so excited that I can go back to something a little more challenging. Something that has fine yarn, uses small needles and has intricate patterns. I love to knit hard things. I feel so accomplished when I am finished.
I was so out of touch concerning this hernia surgery. I really thought I would spend my recuperation time in the Stash Studio reorganizing. I thought I would be able to crawl around on the floor, bend over, lift. Boy, was I wrong! So now I can start organizing. My sister Kathy is coming here for Christmas and I want the Stash Studio to be perfect so we can spend time up there knitting or admiring yarn or visualizing what we want to do next.
I feel like a chapter in my life has closed this week with a knitted project that defines it. How many of you define times in your life by what you knit?
