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,
    Kate

  6. Dear Pammy Sue, I'm so glad you're done with the surgery and that you felt well enough to let us know you're okay. I am in love with your shawl! I just ordered 4 skeins of that yarn in the color "Gems" - I hope that is the stuff. You take care of yourself and follow doctor's orders. Do let us know how you're recuperating.

  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

  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 me....so 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.

  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!

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