I'm fine

Three weeks into recovery after surgery, and I am very VERY slowly getting there. I can now walk almost a whole block and back before I get exhausted.

I'm at a point now where I have to be very patient with myself, because I want to start doing things again, but then my body says. Oh no, chickie, we didn't go through all this only to have you mess it all up again.

So I'm behaving. Also, I've been getting pretty good at knitting while in the supine position. I can't sit for very long, and whatever sitting time I have I use for meals and windows of time at the computer.

While in a friendly competition in my rav group where we are trying to knit up 12,000 yards of yarn from Feb.15 thru Mar.31, I'm working  on several things at the same time. (You know me and my multiple WIP universe.)

Altogether, I made 19 Elf Hats for gifts. (Some of the ends needed yet to be woven in as of the first picture).

Meanwhile I am working on a blanket, which I'm not sure I'll keep. May be for donation.

And in other fun news, I've been asked to spearhead a yarn bombing for an arts event in a downtown business district in June. I think I may have to practice on a little cherry tree I have in the front yard, don't you?
