Well, I finally came out of my bedroom or as my DS likes to call it the "dungeon" yesterday. My new cousin by marriage, came over yesterday for a visit. Since my bunion surgery on June 1st, I've remained upstairs in the bedroom, so that I could be comfortable & have access to the BR. It's been OK up there, I had a cordless phone, stereo & TV/DVD player w/remote, and my knitting, of course. Thank goodness my Hubby let me use his laptop or I probably would have gone a bit stir-crazy.
My cousin is a crocheter & I'm a knitter, but B. didn't bring her crochet yesterday, she brought over her Knifty KnitterTM Loom. It's pretty neat, it's sort of like a giant knitting spool. It looks like it would be a great stash user-upper! You use 2-strands of yarn at a time to knit & she's making lots of hats for charity.
We also watched the DVD The Phantom of the Opera. Now, I must admit that this would probably not have been a movie that I would have selected myself, because I'm just not into opera, but I'm up for new things & I really love being with this relative! Let me tell you, I really enjoyed this movie! The drama & the costumes & settings were fantastic! And, we got a lot of knitting accomplished! I have a sock almost done & B. finished 2 hats!
It was a wonderful day all around. It was good to eat to with family instead of all myself in my room & it was good to be out of the dudgeon. I know my kids enjoyed seeing their mom up & about....sort of.
