Well, I'm not back at work yet. I've developed an infection in my right leg that's being treated by high dose antibiotics and my back is still a bit "wonky" (to use the correct medical terminology). So it looks like I'll be back to work later next week if I get my OB's permission at next week's appointment.
We went to retrieve our personal possessions from the car on Tuesday and it was a bit unnerving to see the car. I'm glad that I did, though, as it kind of gave me closure. We took lots of pictures for our own records and noted problems that even our untrained eyes could see. (Bent frame, 3 jammed doors that are not able to open, and severe rear end damage to name a few.) While it was painful to see the car, it was necessary because I had to get my UnGranny Smith sweater from the back seat!
In happier news, on Monday I started Owen's sweater again and finished it up last night! It's a drop sleeve sweater knitted in the round from the bottom up. Can I just say that I love the knitting in the round sweaters! The sleeves were worked by picking up stitches around the armholes and I love the way they turned out. Owen doesn't like having things high up around his neck so I changed the neckline to a boatneck and it seems to work much better for us that way.
Here's an in-progress picture from Monday afternoon. (Hello, belly!) The sweater is currently drying after much washing. It was my first time using Lamb's Pride and is it normal that it took 8 soakings and rinses before I got a clear rinse?
So right now my current works in progress are the Log Cabin blanket which measures at 16" square, my Fearless Fiber socks that I just started the second sock this morning and the UnGranny Smith sweater that I have the back done on and am about halfway done with the left front. There's a knit in at Simply Fibers tomorrow and I have no idea what project I'll be bringing with me. Bryan's boss is having a baby girl about 2 weeks before I'm due and he asked me to make a little something for her, so maybe I'll bring a new project with me to the knit in!
