I am back. I was actually home on Tuesday, much earlier than expected, as things went very well indeed. However I really can't do very much at all just yet, and rest is top of the agenda.
However I have done a little bit of knitting.
Here is Shawl That Jazz, cast on last Thursday morning, and picked up again when I arrived home. I am enjoying this, there are times when garter stitch in a beautiful yarn is just what is needed, and this is definitely one of those times.
The colours really are lovely - and I decided on 4.5mm needles in the end.
This is Lorna's Laces Swirl DK, a wool/silk blend which reminds me very much of Blue Moon's Silkie in appearance, although of course this is DK and Silkie is lighter than that - and the colourway here is called Watercolor.
I did knit a little on my travel sock, which went into hospital with me. The yarn, it turns out, was not Trekking XXL after all but Megaboots Stretch. I cast on shortly after I arrived and worked on it, on and off, through Thursday evening. I finished the ribbing and a little bit of the leg, but since then I have not even looked at it.
