Spring in Door County
The local stores are also advertising morels, and on occasion I have found some to harvest. They are a great addition to a morning omelette, but I didn't find any this weekend. We had a lot of rain, which was OK because there was a lot of cleaning to do. We usually are the winter motel for a mouse or two, so everything has to be cleaned thoroughly, which I did most of Saturday.
I got a fair amount of knitting done as well - on a cabled bag I am designing for my LYS. It is based upon the Cat's Eye overall cable pattern in Barbara Walker's first volume of stitch patterns. The cable is an 8-stitch cable, so it is fairly physical for the hands. I have to pace myself, because my left hand still doesn't have the strength it should have after the surgery. If I do top much my wrist hurt, which couldn't be a good thing. Right?
I see the doctor tomorrow. Hopefully he will tell me I am progressing as I should and to knit away with abandon. Finger's crossed!
