Hello Everyone. I haven't been posting for awhile as I have been dealing with all that precedes hip replacement surgery. I have been in pain for a couple years and this year it just got to be too much, so Nov. 9 I go in for a right-hip replacement. I am not looking forward to the rehab, but I am looking forward to no more hip/leg pain. I will be in rehab for two weeks, so at least I'll have people cooking and cleaning for me. I'm sure physical and occupational therapy will suck, but I'm sure I'll pull through it. After that, I'll be resting and building up strength and endurance at home until I return to teaching on Jan. 4. I am very tempted to use the entire 12 weeks of the Family Medical Leave Act and fly to Palm Springs or Central FL to skip a couple months of winter here in the Midwest. Time will tell.
I am working on a scarf for my son just now. It's half done and turning out well. It's based on the same pattern I wrote for my previous scarf. I thought I'd post a couple pictures of it. One is taken under incandescent lighting, the other in bright sunlight. It's an early to mid-season scarf and I'm having fun with cabling.
