On the way home from the doc today, I had The Captain stop at the "fancy" yarn shop. "I'll just run in and buy two skeins of yarn. I know exactly what I'm after." Fifteen minutes later (some kind of record, I'm sure), I emerged with 11 skeins of the most luxurious yarn I've ever owned.
I wanted to finally try some of the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino I've heard so much about, and I was after some muted colors after I saw this...
The prettiest Amineko Cat I've ever seen by Marlene at Pontinhosmeus. I need to make more cats! They are so fun.
I'm really loving these colors at the moment. It's all either Debbie Bliss or Sublime, and all of it but one or two have a small amount of cashmere in them. One of them is Wool, Cashmere, and Silk. It's all so soft! I can't quit looking at it and feeling of it and rearranging it. The Captain is sick of me yammering about it and keeps rolling his eyes at me. I can hardly wait to see what it feels like to have it in my hands with my hook in it.
I got my stitches out today at the doc's. All is as well as it should be. I'm back to work on Thursday, I can drive again for short distances, and I can sit for longer periods instead of recline. Itty-bitty progressively bigger steps back to normal. I have some left lower back and side pain still hanging on, but that should get better and better as time goes by.
I've had a big day out and about the town for the first time in weeks. I'm off to the bedroom to lay flat a while and rest. (Yes, I'm taking my new yarn with me to stare at!) The Captain is making burgers for dinner. Yum.
