She's doing wheelies in the hall!

First off, I want to thank everyone with their messages of condolences regarding Joe. They are greatly appreciated. I won't be able to attend the memorial service, but I was able to leave a message on the online memorial book for him. There are good things on the Net.

Friday is the first concert day of the weekend (Confluence will have 3: Portland, Salem, and Corvallis). At the performance, I'll be radiating more than the usual charm. I'm scheduled for a bone scan of my legs (especially my right) to see what's going on. Since a misstep I took in December that jammed my leg, the knee has been getting steadily worse and indicating that it's not the usual arthritis. I'll have the bone scan, then go to the surgeon Wednesday (it was the best they could do on short notice). In the meantime, I'm using a wheelchair at the office and getting plenty of exercise pumping my upper body to push me as fast as I can on carpeted floors. It probably was a good idea of their not giving me an electric scooter.

In knitting news, the socks are finished. The camera was cooperative and represented the colors more accurately this time around. The ribbing was more enjoyable thanks to the color changes. I think if these were in a solid I'd be doing anything to avoid having to do that much ribbing. So Witt, good pick of yarn!

So what's next on the needles? I do have a few WIPs I need to finish up as well as some sock yarn from StitchJones. I think for the concert weekend some time spent with something nice will be good, like the Rose of England cloth languishing in the UFO basket, with a Kureyon striped brioche scarf for those mindless moments.

Yeah! The socks are done. They look great!

Sorry to hear about your knee. Hope the docs figure out the problem quickly.

We miss you at Wednesday night knitting! The socks look great, but I want to see them in person. :-)

Get better soon!
