Okay, so I don't have any pictures of knitting to post. I did manage to finish the pair of felted mittens for Maggie's friend and her mom felted them. She is going to send me a picture to post. I am almost finished with my Karen's Sugar-Free socks, so hopefully I can post those in the next few days. I have been a bad blogger, but somehow my knitting mojo just isn't around. I still get pretty tired most days. I look forward to feeling normal again. It has been 4 1/2 weeks since my surgery. I really thought I would have more energy than I do. The weather is terrible and that doesn't help. I think I will just keep on working on socks for now. I did finish a baby sweater that I started last fall. After I had to rip out the sleeve because of a wrong dye lot, I put it away. The girls are getting bigger, and I think it will fit them soon. I have to start the other one, so maybe this weekend that will be my goal. Hope this finds you all well!! Happy knitting!!

Glad to see a your post! I was getting a bit worried about you. Recovery does take a long time especially after the 20's (eventhough you look like a 20 year old). The uncontrolable urge will strike again. In the meantime, rest those hands and enjoy thoughts of spring. Jane
