Back home and recuperating quickly after my op: the new knee is bedding in nicely (did you know that they try and send you home after a mere one night in hospital these days? Nope, me neither, and when it was suggested, I had a panic attack and practically begged to be able to stay in for one more night….).
I mentioned that I had a heap of projects all ready for the ‘sitting down’ epic? Well, I overlooked a couple of things 1. strong painkillers + brain power = concentration sucks 2. sitting + new knee = pain. So I am not making great progress through my ‘to do’ list. In fact I don’t have a single finished item to show for the last couple of weeks and very little knitting done in general. I have got an idiot proof crochet blanket (round and round and round – in variegated yarns) which is pretty much the only thing that’s getting done. This weird Franken-crochet is already destined for the inside of my car bless it. It’s moderately entertaining for my whacked-out brain – but it ain’t pretty.
I’m hoping that this upcoming third week post-op will see my mobility improve and the pain-relief fall back a bit. I’ve identified some sewing gaps that need filling. I had to purchase some t-shirts on line to go with the loose trousers I’m currently obliged to wear… my baggy top collection was not an attractive pairing with my baggy pant collection and through some further oversight, both largely consisted of contrasting shades of navy blue. Sigh. #nobuyzone is in tatters at this stage: I guess I should review it?
Anyhoo – normal service will be resumed at some point – I hope!
