Today, I thought I would have plenty of time to knit, but painkillers can make me less focused….and slightly forgetful. I am taking a short break to share my progress. Yesterday I had an angiogram, and managed to knit before and after and would’ve during but they stripped me of everything but the hospital gown. I did wake up a few times to ask questions, but the answers got foggy as I drifted back to sleep. They must have preferred me sleeping during the procedure. I did attempt to knit in recovery, but the vicodin on an empty stomach protested. Once the nausea subsided I did manage to pick up my needles and continue to work on the baby hat…I had ideas to finish and didn’t like the interruption but the thought of walking freely again with less pain, was I felt, good enough reason to take a break from knitting.
Later that day, in my vicodin state of mind I did make a very interesting top to the hat but as the pain meds wore off I questioned the wisdom of my choices. Maybe a sewing needle will pull together my stranded thoughts and finish it off in a fun way. If I can figure out how to post a picture, you might actually get to see it.
