So the Dr. came up with a space and I had my knee replacement surgery last Monday, Jan. 24th, and came home Thursday. I am improving each day but getting around is difficult. Can't stay up too long and then have to rest, nap, do exercise, get on the CPM machine (it moves your knee for you), etc. There is not much time to knit but I have been doing some because I hate to waste the time and we have a knitalong going on at the shop and I don't want to fall behind. I promised myself that I would stitch together the squares from our Malabrigo afghan knitalong (2 years ago) but haven't done it yet. I need some encouragement. At least I'm not the only one who hasn't done this. I think Iwill take it out now. Wish me luck.
