Well, I didn't actually lie ... but I *was* being unrealistically optimistic in my last post, and trying really hard to find the silver lining in an otherwise pretty dismal cloud.
The truth is that it will be weeks before these feet are healed. I'm only able to get up out of the recliner long enough for bathroom breaks and a quick check of email before the pain is overwhelming. My feet have to be elevated 24/7. Even knitting is going to get old really soon. In the past 24 hours I've finished the lavendar socks (they were just past the heel turn day before yesterday), and another cowl, and started a new silk scarf (from the wedding stole leftover yarn) ....
I had also decided to knit my niece and her hubby an aran sampler afghan for a wedding present but it isn't even started yet. So I did this 'sampler of the sampler' to send along for their gift-opening:
And I said 'send along' because I won't be going to the wedding now. :-(
Jason, Hailey and I had planned to leave this Friday and drive together (about a thousand miles to just outside Calgary, Alberta), and then Mischa (who is in New York right now) would fly in to meet us there for the wedding, and then drive back with us. I was SO looking forward to having all this time with my children (who are no longer children, and trying to get us all together anymore is like herding cats!) and to being there for Doneen's wedding ... but there's no way I can do it. Or much else. Except knit.
Not having fun. Maybe if I get a better sleep tonight I'll see the humor in this situation again tomorrow. Cross your fingers for me!
