Still kickin’

Hey, so everyone’s fine at my house. (Exhausted and beat up, but hanging in there!) Bob came through his surgery like a champ but, as has happened in the past, he’s suffering from a complication that’s a lot more trouble than the post-op recovery itself. And managing it all on crutches for another six days, minimum. So helping him get through the day is literally all there’s time for right now.

I apologize for the cliffhanger on the #fringeandfriendslogalong front, but I will have prize announcements (and otherwise resume blogging) just as soon as I can give it the attention it deserves. Meanwhile, Kay wrote a lovely “So log, farewell” post on MDK today which includes a look at the three patterns that have come out of the logalong — so far! I know there’s at least one more alleged to be coming, and please do speak up if you know of any others.

Don’t forget to hug your loved ones as often as possible — and have a wonderful weekend.

  1. Take the time! Don’t worry about us; we’re all sending you good vibes and will be here when the dust settles.

  2. Ditto to the above. I was on crutches for 12wks in 2016, not pretty for anyone in the household. Hang in there! Healing vibes and rest, I hope, for both of you.

  3. Glad to hear Bob’s surgery went ok but I’m sorry to hear about the complication. Thinking healing thoughts for him and sending you big hugs.

  4. Those complications!! I’m so sorry for you both…….but with each comes one more day behind you! Look forward to more of you soon. Take care.

  5. As everyone has said…we are all sending you two our support and good wishes for a steady recovery. Don’t worry about getting back to us. Knitters have a lot of patience! We choose to spend 5 weeks knitting a sweater instead of running to the store to buy one! Hehe 😉
    We’ll all be here when you are able. 💖

    • 5 weeks?? If only! Some of us seem to spend 3 months knitting all over fair isles… *sigh*

      But seriously Karen, I wish your husband a speed recovery, take your time.

  6. Thinking of you both. Crutches are no fun…hope he heals quickly. Thank goodness for knitting!

  7. Wishing your husband a speedy recovery and some peace in rest when possible for you!

  8. Hope that Bob’s recovery goes well. When I broke my ankle 2 years ago I opted for the (old lady-ish) walker instead of crutches because I knew a walker would stay were I put it when I let go and I wouldn’t put a crutch through a window or bean my husband or trip over them in the middle of the night and break something else. Caring for someone is time-consuming and tiring. We’ll be here when you get a breather.

  9. We should be your last concern right now! Please, both you and Bob get some rest, and feel the good vibes we’re all sending you!

  10. Sending healing thoughts your way. Don’t worry about the prizes – it can wait! I’m still plugging along on my Next in Line log cabin throw – plan to publish the pattern late March or (more likely) April.

  11. Good vibes to you and Bob!

    No rush for anything…as many have said already, we knitters have patience. I managed to get my Kureyon mitts instagrammed at the last minute in #fringeandfriendslogalong. I had to felt them lightly to fit, and they ended up quite long and not really looking like your mitts but I love them. The colors are a great pick-me-up for a dreary winter day. I’m going to make the hat next.

  12. Hope your husband heals quickly and feels good, and that you also remember to care for yourself. We all have lots of WIPs and your wonderful archive of posts to keep us busy. XOXO
