Well, things have moved on apace. Saw the physiotherapist on 8th March, which was 8 1/2 weeks since the operation. She said that now it’s all healed inside, and is stable, I can work on getting back to normal. So I’m hardly wearing the wrist support at all, only needing to take 2 paracetamol 3 or 4 times a day, and feeling much better generally.
I asked her about knitting and she said to start off doing a few minutes at a time. I knitted a dishcloth, which would as a rule take me an evening, but only did five minutes at a time. Went to the new knitting group at the shop on Thursday and again on Saturday, and after 6 evenings’ knitting as well as that, I finished it. At the group I knitted for a few minutes, then had a rest for 20 minutes or so, then knitted for a few minutes. I know when it’s time to stop, and do, and it’s going well so far. I can’t knit as fast as I normally can just yet but I’m definitely improving.
So now I’ve cast on a hat for Lily, who is 2. It has a ruffled brim, which meant casting on 290 stitches. That’s a long row. But there’s only 6 rows of that, then when the brim’s done, it’s down to 90 stitches, which is more manageable. And it will look so pretty, I think she’ll look like a little flower. It’s a winter hat so completely the wrong time of year to be knitting it, but I’ve promised myself small projects, and this is a small project.
Took the car out for a spin last night, to see how that went, as it’s a long time since I drove. That was fine, so today I drove to Solihull to meet my friend and we had a really nice coffee and a chat in Starbuck$. Tomorrow I can take myself to my hair appointment!
And to cap it all, the weather is absolutely beautiful outside. Breezy, but sunny and exhilarating. Finally!
