|Yep, definitely broken.|
|Here's me in the ER |
looking awesome in my
shiny Blue Dress!
So I have spent the last few weeks recovering and sleeping a ton! Who knew that building new bones in your body uses a LOT of energy? I had surgery last Monday and since then I have been able to knit in small increments at the recommendation of my orthopedic surgeon. He said it would help speed up my recovery. Hurray for some good news!

|Tosh Merino Light|
It's called the Super Easy Baby Blanket and it's a free pattern on the Purl Bee Blog. I chose to do mine in Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light so I adjusted the pattern for a smaller gauge. I cast on 200 sts on a US size 5 needle and I'm really excited about the colors. Shown here in order from left I have: Espadrilles, Milk, Olivia, Clover, Kelp and Kale. I am undecided on the 7th color but I figure I don't really need to decide that right now. I don't actually have anyone to knit this for at the moment, but it's a lovely little project as all that garter stitch makes my hands, wrist, and fingers very happy! (I'm thinking about knitting it for Bethany, because she is so Awesome.)

So I hope this helps to explain my absence here. Next week I get to have my post-surgery splint taken off and will have a removable brace that should allow me even more mobility. I can't wait! There has been all kinds of knitting going on at the shop, so I'll be back next Friday with a real FO/WIP post. If any of you have experienced something similar to my injury and have any wisdom to impart for the recovery process, please feel free to share! I welcome any and all suggestions!
