So, I have been unable to work all week due to an emergency trip to the hospital that resulted in a minor surgery that required anesthesia. No need to get deep into the details. It was very painful, but now the worst is all over. But, the crazy part is .... it all happened the day before my birthday, which was the 22nd. The doctors were really nice to me, and they took care of me. One of the nurses even said a prayer with me, so I thank her for that. So, my birthday was happy in the essence that I was alive and painfree. I wanted to have this party at a really trendy lounge, but instead spent it with family and a few close friends. But, that was actually the best thing, because I got to spend some quality quiet time with the people I care about.
So, in the time that I had to stay at home resting, my mind just kept buzzing. I started to design a webpage as well as a logo and a flyer for an event that a friend is having. And, I have come to realize that when people don't interrupt you, you can really get a lot done. I was able to finish my Central Park Hoodie sleeves (will post pics soon) and make some progress on my Falling in Love Sock. So, I started thinking of my next project. I want to make the Better Sweater, as seen on Knitty Gritty, and designed by Stephanie Japel.
As a birthday gift to me, I did some shopping. Knit New York had a sale, and I just had to go in there to pick up some Cascade Magnum (lime #9481). It was 10% off, and I entered a raffle to win a $100 gift certificate. Geez, I hope I win, because I saw a lot of really nice yarn that I wanted to get my hands on. Hmmm... as if that was not a given. Here is the latest addition to my stash. That color will definately be a welcome addition to my wardrobe, once the sweater is knit up.
