Boho Hippie Shawl

Yarn:  Deborah Norville Serenity Garden Yarn (Fine or Sock Weight)
Hook:  Size E
Edging 1:  Rows 1 & 6 of Doris Chan's All Shawl Border
Edging 2 (Neck Edge):  SC into first 5 stitches, ch-3 picot into next st, repeat across.


I'm home and doing great.  No leg pain at all, but terrific low-back pain and back spasms galore.  Doc says that was expected, and he also said I may have a couple of bad days this first week as it is healing.  It's difficult to move without pain.  It's amazing how many things require back muscles to do.  As long as I'm taking the pain medicine and muscle relaxer, I'm okay.  It's approximately a 5-inch incision.  I go back in two weeks to get the stitches taken out.  So far so good.  The hard part is over, I think.

Again, thank you for your kind comments and thoughts.

I shall return, but I'm not sure if it'll be tomorrow or a week from tomorrow.  It just depends how things go.


  1. Ok, I'm sure hoping that you took these fabulous picture before you surgery. It's turned out great. I love the colors in the yarn. OK, now back to bed with you missy. Seriously, 5 inches, ouch. But, I know you will be better in the long run.

    Speedy Recovery Hugs,

  29. I kept looking for posts from you - wanted to see how you were doing...and somehow managed to miss this one (until now). Sorry to be so late in commenting. I was, indeed, thinking of you even if the words weren't written here. Glad you're on the other side of the surgery. Sending healing thoughts your way. Hugs and good wishes, Annette

  30. Hi, long time no catch up sorry to hear you have had surgery and are in pain, hope it all heals up soon
    Love the shawl gorgeous colours
    Hugs for a speedy recovery x

  31. First I want to say hope your are feeling better!!

    I LOVE your shawl and am inspired to make one of my own. I was in Joann's today and the yarn is on sale....lucky I scooped up some. How many skeins did it take you to make this wonderful shawl??
    HA...not that I don't have MANY other things to work on.

  32. Robin: I used 3.5 skeins of D.N. Serenity Garden yarn for that shawl

  33. Thanks Pammy Sue...I bought 6 so I should have more than enough. Im anxious to start on this project and I really like the red in it.....although I have 4 other WIP to work on. A girl needs some variety in her life!!

  34. Did you hold two strands together as the pattern suggests? How did that work out with the color changes? I can't wait to try this!

  35. Lisa ~ No, I only used one strand of yarn.
