I’m running out of time to knit most days. I guess that’s not so bad there are days I have more than enough time. This time of physical therapy is a roller coaster ride of rest and activity. The therapy drains me and makes me sore, forcing me to rest, which frees up my time so I can knit. No matter what, I stay busy. Socks are on my needles, baby hats, my sock blanket and that baby blanket I keep forgetting about. I should get started on some Christmas gifts the next time my feet are up. I’m really liking this jewelry pattern I found….
A wedding started the resurge of baby hats. I suppose that sounds strange. My basket has been full of baby hats all winter. I’m not quite up to walking the distance to the baby floor of the hospital I spent a month in last summer so I lost interest in knitting them for awhile. Until the wedding.
The wedding was planned for last Saturday, and I had the pleasure of seeing the bride, her mother and her bridesmaids prepare for the wedding. What fun it was to be a part of the preparation, even if it was just my basement, staircase, and the toddlers we had fun keeping an eye on. The baby hats came into play when the photographer was looking for good lighting to photograph the rings. My knitting is a very visible thing in my home. Baskets of yarn, half-begun projects, finished projects and needles adorn my home. A few questions later and my finished collection of baby items were strewn across my coffee table.
A couple of my hats and a baby blanket were sold. There was even mentioned interest in more purchases. My mind is now churning out ideas faster than I can knit. I’m excited about the baby hats again.
The variety of styles are leaping off my needles. I even ordered more needles and yarn so I can keep churning out the projects. I needed this distraction as I have had frustrating news about my stump. Now I can bury myself in yarn and projects so I will not worry and fret over something of which I have no control. The MRI is a week away and I am so excited about all the patterns I can distract myself with. Happy knitting people!
