A week out...

It’s been just over a week since my bunion surgery, and I’m doing ok. I was doing great until the top of my foot got bruised - I’m just a delicate flower... The surgery site is great! The rest of the top of my foot is a giant bruise. It only hurts when I stand up or put my foot on the floor... so... I need to sit until my next appointment on Tuesday - we all know I don’t sit well.
So far, I’ve made a dragonfly blanket, finished another, made a pair of mittens, made a baby hat, baby booties, and a baby blanket, and worked on a shawl. At least I can say I’ve been productive. I’m going to finish two shawls that I’ve started and hopefully get another few pair of mittens done during my recovery.

Bunion time!

In the morning, I’m off to have the bunion on my left foot taken care of. I’m not thrilled about going under the knife, but I am looking forward to being able to walk without pain - after the first few days, anyway!
I’ll be in a boot for about a month. At least it’s my left foot which means I can still drive. The doc says I can do almost everything, but it won’t be at the speed I’m used to moving. It also means I’ll be wearing more dresses...
This weekend I’ll be sitting with my foot up.
I don’t sit well... but, I’ve got a few projects to work on to keep me busy.
So, I’ll manage!
