Success!

Just a quick note to say that Ernie is sporting a brand new knee. His surgeon is fabulous, thank you Dr. Greene. I hope recovery is speedy and Ernie will be dancing in the streets before too long. That should be fun since he has never been one to dance much!

Good thing I have lots of knitting and crochet projects to do. 2 afghans and 1 pair of socks in progress and Judy L's Knit Along starts Monday......can't wait!!!


I am working the gusset on this pair and want to have them off the needles before Monday so I'll be taking them with me today to work on while I sit with Ernie. I am loving working both socks at the same time. I hate that I let frustration get to me while learning new things. I'm glad I decided to give 2 circular needles another try. See, you can teach an old dog..........

Glad the surgery went well. Now for the Physical Therapy. That's always fun! I can't imagine knitting two socks at one time. Well, I can't imagian knitting one, but two?! I have never tried the circular needles.

Give Ernie lots of hugs and attention... knee replacement is a tough surgery to recover from, but it is SOOO worth it many months later when the knee actually starts to feel "normal" again, and pain free. I have this one bit of advice for Ernie.... "Ice packs are your friends!"

You are really ZOOMING on those socks. SHHHH! Don't tell Judy L., but I have already started my socks for the knit-along. I figured as slow as I knit, I needed to get a jump on everyone, or I would NOT finish them by the end of Nov. I've gotten about 3/4" of the cuffs done.

Knitting is a great project while visiting someone after surgery or when taking care of a love one isn't it? I'm so glad yout tried two at a time again ....I love doing my socks that way.
