Recuperating

The recuperation from my surgery is not as painful as the doctor had predicted, so of course I'm relieved about that. I am housebound and not really up for visitors, but I can manage knitting. 

I pulled out these three colors for my Free Your Fade shawl. 
I'm not sure if I'll use all three or just the gradient and the blue. I'm going to see how it looks when I get to the first "fade." So far, the gradient is just gorgeous! And it matches the project bag -- one of the many that my sweet MIL has made for me.
I set up another Tchaikovsky Hat before my surgery. It's such an easy pattern and I had the perfect yarn: a skein of Casual Fashion Queen in Bohemia. 
This might be my favorite colorway of all time.
While I'm not up to visitors, I do appreciate it when Nagi and Kola keep me company.
It's actually been cool here so I've enjoyed having them on my lap.

At the rate I'm recovering, I'm going to have to start doing useful things soon, but I'm trying to enjoy this "vacation" while I can.

  1. I'm so glad that your recuperating is less painful than predicted and that you are feeling better. Enjoy your "vacation" as much as possible and take it easy; useful things will (and should!) wait until you're recovered. Your gradient is gorgeous and I'm looking forward to seeing more as you progress.

  6. Just caught up on your May posts and really enjoy seeing all the gorgeous yarns and projects you have been working on and your skilled urban sketching as well. However, my favorite photos are of you and your lovely family. I am celebrating your son's graduation from afar and am so pleased that you all are looking forward to time together in Florida! As always I find your reading choices interesting and challenging. Currently I am reading, "Discerning the Voice of God" by Priscilla Shirer which I am finding thought provoking and encouraging. May your healing be rapid and lasting and the forced time of rest be filled with the Lord's peace. xx

  7. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Such gorgeous yarns in this post, I love the colour of that gradient. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment, it means that I've now found your lovely blog and I've had a quick look back through some previous posts. I see that your son has recently graduated, many congratulations to him. It's such a proud moment at that graduation ceremony, isn't it? My son graduated two years ago now and I've got a daughter who is just coming up to the end of her second year at university.
