Surgery & Knitting

Tomorrow, I will go as an out-patient for skin graft surgery to my right hand to treat my 3rd degree burn injuries.

My doctor recommended having a skin graft rather than waiting for the wounds to slowly heal. He said that the skin graft would have a better appearance & outcome. Of course, I said, "Yes, go for it!" I NEED to get back to my knitting! My new Harmony needles are beckoning me. My white cardigan is feeling neglected...I just know that it is. I have 1 sock feeling orphaned.

I've done some knitting, but not as much as I would liked, however, I did search & find so many patterns that I have added to my ever-growing collection. I have more patterns than I will ever be able to do in my life time. (Thanks to the wonderful of the Internet and the endless free patterns!)

So...I'll be away from my knitting & the computer for a little bit, but not for long. I'll be back soon!!!

Deb, I will certainly keep you in my prayers tomorrow and hope for quick healing. Can't desert your knitting for too long; the UFOs really get lonely rather quickly. Renate
