Where Has The Time Gone?

Wow, it seems like just yesterday that I posted. In reality it's been a long time. I have been doing a little knitting but not as much as normal. Most of my readers know that I'm pretty much blind in one eye and I'm waiting for cataract surgery. Well the wait is almost over. One week from today it will be a done deal. My only issue is still which lens to have implanted and I don't have that sorted out yet. My ophthalmologist and I are in disagreement at the moment.

Meanwhile there has been some progress on the Nefertiti wrap. I have just started chart 4 of 14 charts in total. I know it doesn't look like it right now but this shawl will be a rectangle according to the pattern. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Nefertiti Wrap

Yes, that's a lifeline you see. I made an error in chart two which the designer figured out for me and a little further on, on one of the k3togethers, I dropped one of the three. Of course that only became evident after I'd knit 6 more rows. I tinked back six rows and decided then and there that there would be lifelines in this project. I really know better but I got lazy and whenever I am it comes back to bite me in the bum.

I also knit up a quick hat for youngest grandson who plans to pass through T-dot for one night next week. He asked for one and I hope he likes it.

Hat For Cassidy

I'll post after the surgery and let you all know if I can see...

He'll love the hat!

The green yarn is absolutely stunning. I can't wait to see this all completed.

Rudee, that green yarn is the Sea Silk from Hand Maiden and it's a dream to knit.
Cathy, thanks for your good wishes.
Hey Doc, thanks for visiting. I hope the surgery goes well too. My doc and I are in disagreement on the lens to use. I want the multi focal and he says no. I don't know why he cares, I'm willing to pay. It's a tug of war that will play out this week.
