Spin Night Becomes Knit Knight er Night

We girls got together last night for our regular spin session. Five of us have been getting together to spin twice a month on Monday nights for 14 years! Wow, we are not old, just seasoned. Hahaha. There were four of us last night, one girl had to work. We took up our needles instead of our wheels.  Cindy is an excellent knitter. She used to own a yarn shop. She brought a pattern that she had written and we knitted socks using a totally new, to us, cast on, and a toe-up method. It was fun watching these “middle-aged” ladies squinting and scrunching up their noses as they worked on this new technique. We had a great time. Cindy is soooo patient. We got the toes begun and we will see what happens next time we “spin”. Who knows we may have to finish our socks if we haven’t by then. I complain about not getting to spin, or knit enough, but I do have 2 days a week that I go out to the LYS to spin and knit and then 2 times a month I add another night to spin. Methinks I complain too much.

I CAN Spin Again!

The pain in my arm is so much better that I am able to spin again. I also can knit again too! I spent a couple of hours last night knitting at Knit Night at the LYS and it was so good to be able to knit without pain. Then today at the same LYS, I was able to spend about 2 hours spinning. I was so pleased. Hopefully by the weekend I will be able to begin setting up my loom again.

It really helps to listen to and do what your Physical Therapist tells you to. I am definitely recovering, not as much tingling in the arm or shoulder as before and not the fatigue either.

I am a happy camper, ur skippy spinner, or krazy knitter? How about all 3 and very thankful to God for the healing.
