Not How I Wanted To Start The New Year

This past weekend was the start of my knitting classes for the new year.  I was so excited to get back into the routine of spending my weekends at yarn shops, meeting new knitters and old friends and teaching them something new.  My first class was a double knitting class so I was doubly excited (pun intended!) to make some new double knitters.

The class went well, the ladies were wonderful, they were double knitting and just as excited as me to be able to switch colours from one side of their knitting to the other making a cushy, reversible fabric.  We all went home looking forward to this coming weekend when we would get together again to learn more.

Then, this happened.  I fell, had my first ambulance ride, had an X-ray, bought this fashionable cast and crutches and was told the X-ray showed my knee cap was broke in half.

I am back him now sleeping on the couch with my leg in its cast unable to put any weight on it waiting to hear when my surgery will be.

no belly dancing anytime soon

The good news is that for the near future I have unlimited knitting time.  The bad news is that all classes in the next few weeks will need to be postponed.  I will be checking and post on instagram, Facebook and ravelry regularly so if you have any knitting questions feel free to ask away.  I will keep you all updated on my progress and will work on rescheduling classes as soon as I can.

Until then, happy knitting and be careful!

Oh no! You are a real trouper Louise, knitting away on the hospital gurney (and with a smile, no less). Wishing you a speedy recovery and that your bones knit up as neatly as your knitting!! Gina, Port Elgin

Such a bummer that this happened- way to stay positive though!
That pic of you in the ER needs to be framed. :)
