24 Hours

Just 24 hours from now the cast and wires on my foot will disappear, I hope. It's not guaranteed though really, first there will be an x-ray to make sure everything is healed. If it's not then the cast goes back on. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

If the cast does stay off then some of these knitting projects will stop for a while so I can concentrate on doing other stuff.

Out of boredom I have started too many things one of which is the Forest Canopy Shawl. I used some yarn I had dyed myself and unfortunately I don't have enough. The pattern says 100 grams, 350 yards and that would be good for a little shoulder covering but it's not what I want. So I'm going to have to dye up some more and hope I get it right. It's a pretty easy pattern and it has both written instructions and charts. I'm not very good at reading charts so this suits me. I don't really know what it is about charts that freaks me out but they do and I don't bother fighting it. I may do this pattern again using lace weight yarn.

Yesterday my options needles arrived from KnitPicks and I was able to transfer the log cabin blanket to a longer cable which makes it easier to handle. It has grown quite a bit.

The blanket...

There are still socks happening as always but they are not ready for pictures yet.

I sure hope your foot turns out to be cast free so you can get out and about. I like the blue yarn you dyed. I am on the search for a needle holder and yarn organizer. I know I have seen them some where. I may just make one.

hope all went well with your foot! Your shawl looks lovely! and your blanket is big! No wonder you need a big needle. I love the kp 60", its big enough that I can try on sweaters in progress without putting it on scrap yarn.

I'm just starting to recover from the trauma of having those pins removed. The cast is gone but it will take some time to recover. Thanks for your good wishes.
