I’ve got dozens of reasons for not having posted this past month and a half…but I’m sure you don’t want to hear about me being sick in March with that horrible cold/sinus infection. And then I’m sure that you don’t want to hear about me having knee surgery last month, and sleeping for a week afterwards…

I have not knitted much since getting that sinus infection.

I lost the knitting mojo.

noooo

 

So now I am almost 3 weeks since the surgery, the first week having slept most of the week away, I am finally finding that it is more comfortable to sit with my leg up, then down from the ottoman for longer periods of time…thank goodness for physical therapy!!

I had purchased a bunch of yarn on my last trip to Knitting Etc. in Ithaca with my Mom, Michele & Dottie…we had such a great time together…so anyways, I bought some Cascade 220 in Mossy Rock (9429) (a lovely dark olive green) and winter white (8505), and am using a hat pattern that I found on Ravelry,  (great site for patterns and sharing information and pictures of your finished products) called Flora Hat.

Here’s a picture of the start of my new hat…

When I finish it, I will post a picture of it displayed on my fake head…

Anywho, I am so glad to be back doing something useful since I’ve not been able to really do much with this bum knee of mine other than fix a quick meal, and do a few dishes…
