Everything's well again!

It’s amazing what a few days will do to change your outlook on everything. I tell you that was one dark day when I last wrote, but the sunshine’s out again. . .

because I can WALK (and more importantly drive) again! The CT scan said it was just a hairline fracture and the doc said I can walk around with my big black boot for a couple of weeks and to take it easy, but as long as I don’t have a bunch of pain in a month, he doesn’t want to see me again! Talk about good news — normally I’d be offended by someone telling me they don’t want to see me again, but I’ll let it slide this time, for such a good cause.

Knitting-wise, I didn’t get quite as much done as I wanted to, but I did finish the little pirate hat for a new baby girl.

Yet Another Pirate Hat

There it is blocking and I delivered it to my sister, whose friend is the proud cousin of the recipient baby (how’s that for convoluted?). I hope the baby and baby’s mama like it — they are fun, quick knits (when I actually work on them!)

Now on to two adult versions — a black one for my newly minted BIL and a purple set for my grandmother, who’s set to start chemo for metastatized colon cancer within the month. Since she and Maxx (recipient of the first pirate hat) share the same birthday, they really should have matching hats come this February.

And then after that — Holiday Knitting. I keep procrastinating on actually writing out a list, but I think it’s about time to bite the bullet and pare out what I actually can do, rather than shooting for the dreamy stars of gifts for everyone that dance in my eyes.
