Working on another Christmas gift. This is my nephew the lawyer's scarf made of Jo Sharp Silk Road Aran Tweed. It feels exquisite to work with. I'm doing it in Mistake Rib and it's coming out very nicely.

Well I had a surprise Saturday. I was preparing to go perform at the 5th anniversary concert for Confluence when I started feeling a sharp pain in my belly around my navel. First thing I thought it was the IBS that was kicking in and hoped that it would go away soon. When it didn't let up for over 2 hours, I ended up going to the ER and found out that evening that I had an umbilical hernia . So at midnight I went under the knife. I'm now home recuperating. Last week was vacation. I'm off for two more weeks. The boss wasn't too thrilled but these things happen.

So I'll have time to work out the Klein hat, finish the mate to the grandnephew mittens, and work on the fabbo slipper socks for my sister-in-law. All I need now are the movies I've ordered from the library.

All I've knit in the Silkroad Aran Tweed so far is a couple of swatches but I have plans to make myself a sweater. It does feel nice, doesn't it.

sorry to hear about the hernia. The timing couldn't have been worse. Hope you are better soon. Your doctor prescribed movies and knitting, right?

He said don't lift anything over 25 pounds. Good thing the Christmas project basket is full of goodies to work and weighs less than that.

I wish I could have sung in the concert but oh well. You deal wit' what's dealt ya, even if it's a couple of deuces.
