Bwahahaha I’m aliiiiive.
Sorry I skipped you November. You were a good month of healing and getting reacquainted with the Midsommer Murders mystery show on Netflix.
I’m still healing from the surgery, but things were not as bad as I thought they would be. I barely needed the harder pain killers and was just fine on IBP and Aspirin. The scar isn’t so bad either. I do have weird stretched skin that’s figuring itself out. Also my inside bits figuring out what to do with all the new space!
Projects I managed to get work done on include the Mindcraft hat…and that’s about it as far as what I had planned on doing. Most of my time in bed has been sleeping and watching tv. I realized half way through the hat ribbing that any tiny particle in the air was causing me to cough, which was INCREDIBLY painful. So I wasn’t knitting much at all the first few weeks.
I’ve returned to work part time now, since the 4th week. (Those first 3 weeks were spent sleeping and unable to sit up on my own). I spend a lot of time on the couch these days: working, knitting, eating. By Thanksgiving I’ve been able to sit up at the table for short periods of time. I’m planning by Christmas to be mostly 100%
At the suggestion of my sister in law, I’m going to investigate joining a yoga class for women who have recently given birth / had a c-section. That’s basically what happened to me. Also, I think it will get me out of the house more often!
Current knitting projects: Sweaters
I have 4 sweaters I started this year that need to be finished!
Nightingale Cardigan, Bloom Cardigan, Jonathan’s Sweater, and the sweater dress Laneway
I’m kind of tempted to completely frog the Laneway sweater dress and make it into another cardigan. I’ve been feeling I need more/new cardigans ever since fall started and I realized I haven’t gotten a new one in over two years!
Why buy when one can make! =)
