I knew I would make St. James again, this was finished a few weeks ago. The pattern is so easy and wearable. I used Rowan All Seasons cotton again, this time in my husband's favorite color. Rowan calls it Geranium, but around here we call it Hydrangea, his favorite flower.
I am on a knitting sabbatical for a bit. I got a bad infection in the tendons of my right hand (from a rose thorn!) which required two surgeries and a stay in the hospital. I have more than 8 gruesome inches of incisions zigzaging down my palm from my pinky to past my wrist. My hand is healing and gaining mobility daily, but it will be awhile before knitting is back in by life. And oh how I miss it! Instead I am reading lots and slowly doing the necessary things of life with my incompetent left hand. My friends and family have been so good to me, I have needed so much help, but now feeling that I am definitely on the mend.
To complete the outfit I have these nifty flowery shoesies,
...and this great vintage Kate Spade bag (2001, soooo very vintage!)
...which also matches the hydrangeas about ready to burst
...and some "get well" flowers to make me feel loved.
