After a thumb joint replacement and no knitting since March 13th — I’m Baaa-aack!
Feels so great to be able to take off the brace and knit without pain. I’m half-way through my physical therapy sessions and my hand gets tired after about 15 minutes of knitting.
I picked up my needles where I left off in February – knitting the second sock of a pair for my son that I started back in January! He has big feet and knitting socks for him always takes a while, but this is ridiculous! Be patient, Kent!
But I did cast on another project that has a timeline —
There’s a story with this one! In my previous post, I told you about my friend Pat having the same surgery, by the same surgeon, the day before mine. And I even included a photo of how we were trying to knit using her left hand and my right one. Well, actually that didn’t work very well. But we’ll both knit a bit on this hat and we plan to give it to our surgeon, Matt, at our next appointment in June. He doesn’t know that we scheduled our appointments back-to-back so that we could give him this present! He’s a great guy and we can’t wait to surprise him! (Shhh……don’t tell him!)
