Knit One Purl Two

Published by cams at 9:52 am under Recovery

So, tired of crossword puzzles, and can only see so much on internet television and Netflix.  Decided to invade my knitting stash that I haven’t breathed on for ages and dig up all of those patterns I saved over the years during the time when I was too pre-occupied with writing my thesis and journal articles.  Since being bound to the chair, I have knitted pieces for a fair isle vest (Louisa Harding), a cable sweater, a hat, and most of an angora short sleeve top.  The hardest part is putting all of the pieces together and sewing them up, because I like to press all of my pieces before I sew them together.  I’ll save that for when I can stand on two feet.

    Good for you! I’m an avid knitter and it saved my sanity during my 11 weeks of forced captivity!

    Yep! I can make lots of progress by just knitting the pieces! It seems to take just as long for me to seam everything together properly. Not looking forward to seaming my vest, with all of the color changes. Am wondering if I can get away with just using one color, or whether it will be too obvious. I guess I just need to experiment a bit.

    Sounds like you have knitted yourself a new wardrobe! I saved all my blocking for post cast. It’s too hard to maneuver around on crutches. It will give you something to do later :)

    I have crocheted an afghan while watching old black and white movies from the 30_40s. I have some yarn, needles and patterns to figure out how to knot a tobaggan hat but have been taking Vicodin so regularly that I have difficulty staying focused but hope to feel stronger soon.

    Yes! I didn’t think about that, but indeed I have. I just finished the angora top, no actually mohair from Rowan’s kid silk haze last night, and will now go through some old stash for a striped cardigan. I’ve uploaded pictures too, but can’t seem to place the photos onto the blog page itself. They are separated for some reason, even though I try to place the photos within the text.

    Agreed. Don’t knit while on drugs! Dangerous. Could poke your eye out.
