I will be honest, I really hadn’t realized that two whole weeks had gone by since my last blog post. Life has been very busy here and many things have happened.
The eyes are fine. So many people have been asking me how the whole thing went down and I wanted to level with everyone. It was a painful, boring recovery. I couldn’t see so tv, computer, and everything else that involves seeing was out. I had no idea not being able to see hindered a person so much. I guess I had never even really thought about it before. I now have a whole new level of respect for those that have lost their sight and still manage to function, because, let me tell you, I was a mess.
I did manage some knitting while I was to be knitting. I finished Monkey’s pants, however, since she refuses to model them right now, pictures for these will have to wait.
Then, we headed off to Seattle, and on the plane there, I started the Imogen sweater (Ravelry Link) that has been calling my name since it came home with me from Victoria in May of last year.
I wish I could have shown you a finished sweater, however, I still have the huge shawl collar to finish. So close, yet still so far.
However, I did also manage to finish one and a bit of a sock over the last few weeks.
Oh, and since we were coming through Vancouver, I managed to persuade TG to stop at Sweet Georgia yarns. Felicia, the creator and mastermind behind Sweet Georgia yarns was so friendly and easy to chat with. I would show you a picture of her and the studio, however, I opted not to take photos of the quiet loft space that she occupies. It seemed like I would be violating the sanctity of the studio and I wanted to be respectful.
Instead, I will show you what I managed to limit myself to buying. Thank goodness for TG’s watchful eye or I would have walked out with everything.
