Well, my weekend getaway with the whole family went really well this weekend! We had a blast and it was totally relaxing. I got pretty far on Sock #1 with the KnitPicks Simply Stripes in Crayon. As soon as LuckyHusband gets up and gets my camera for me, I'll try to get some pictures done.
My gall bladder surgery yesterday went really well. I even felt well enough to knit a little yesterday afternoon! My sweet and wonderful co-worker Jamie brought me a basket full of yarn and some awesome bamboo needles . He's the best! And my mom and LittleMan got me a sock pattern book and a needle case. I had told my mom that I was thinking of designing and sewing up my own needle cases and she bought me one so I would have something to go-by. When I got home from the hospital yesterday (how amazing is it that you get to leave only 4 hours after the surgery is over?), I had the 50% wool 50% angora yarn that I had ordered for my brother's socks. I can't wait to get started on those. When he came to visit last night, he told me that he had ordered part of my birthday present yesterday. I smell some knitting stuff on the way! :)
I posted more surgery details etc on my main blog earlier. But, I'll say this....a c-section didn't hurt as much as this. I thought this was supposed to be no big deal!! I'm feeling much better though.
I have received 2 baby shower invites in the past week and I'm hosting one in 2 weeks, so I need to get started on some gifts. Two are for my friends from high school and one is for my sister in law. I picked out an adorable fishing style baby hat to make for the sister in law, I've already made a baby hat for one of the friends, and I'm considering a baby blanket for the other friend. I guess we'll have to see what I'm feeling up to.
Saturday we get to pick up our puppy and I chose to meet the people in a town with a LYS (there are none within 2 hours of my house) so I'm pretty excited about that.
Hope you all are having a good week! Happy Knitting!
