Snippety Snip

The specialist tells me that on a scale of small, medium and large, the bulge on my disc is enormous. So it's an operation on Tuesday and I'll be in hospital until Friday. Then it's 6 weeks to recover enough to get back to work. Hardcore. I am teeny weeny bit nervous but it will be so much better not to be in constant pain.

Meanwhile there is lots to prepare. I'm not going to be able to move about much so I've prepared some 'project bags' with everything I need in them for projects like embroidery and knitting. Then I can just station them strategically near the sick bed and pick them up as I want them. The same with reading books, ipod, phone etc.

In between little bouts of slow moving preparation I'm working away at my Kauni. I've finished the first thistle. Although I think they look more like lillies than thistles.

I absolutely love it, especially the colour combinations. The blue and orange are like goldfish in water, the red and green are like geraniums. I'm looking forward to yellow and purple - I've always liked them together.

I should have time to blog again before the chop. If not I'll get back to it in a week or so!

One of my sisters had a similar operation and she felt *wonderful* afterward. Best wishes to you for cute doctors, good drugs, and an uneventful recovery in good time. (Pretty knitting, too!)

All the very best with it - has to be better than the sort of pain you're in now!

Good luck and may you soon be pain-free! I am about to google Kauni as I have no idea what it is, but it looks amazing.

Hope you are feeling better soon, and get loads of knitting during your enforced rest.
