I feel optimistic that today will be a turning point for Oldest Daughter. Maybe today she will be able to swallow some nutrition and I will be able to get my feet back under me. It has been a dizzying 3 days.
I have not knit a single stitch since returning home from the hospital, but while I was there I was quite productive.
This is the large sized Ishbel. I was able to finish the entire solid portion and begin the lace charts. That is some power knitting!
A friend told me to be careful because your waiting room gauge is often tighter than normal. I made a point of relaxing the yarn when waiting for a surgery update. Where I ran into trouble was back in Oldest Daughter’s room. That part was WAY more stressful and even when I tried to loosen up, it did not work well. Its OK, its lace, all will be fine.
Youngest Daughter was amazed that I was able to make so much progress on Ishbel in such a short time. I explained that not only was I knitting, but that I finished a book. She asked if I had finished writing one or reading one. This made me laugh. I love that she asked!
As you can imagine, my Tour De Fleece (Rav link) spinning has screeched to a halt. I may be able to get back to it tomorrow. Even with my medical time out I feel confident that I will be able to finish the fiber in my queue.
