A day at home

I have been working on my sprained back by resting, not lift anything heavy and not bending over too much.  It's working.  Now only going over speed bumps, coughing  and sneezing cause a lot of pain.  All the other pain is being controlled by pain killers!

Charlie has the idea of how not to do too much.

I did finish the peace embroidery for August.  I don't really like it much.  I should have used an even coloured thread.   I think I will put this one down to experience.

And because I have tried to keep still I have started some more knitting.  This is another shawl and I am trialing some wool that I bought a couple of months ago from 'Kaalund Yarns.'  (As you can see I am doing some 'reverse' knitting as well.)

This is a really nice wool.  The spinning of the yarn is even and has given it a nice twist.  Very satisfying to knit with this wool.  Just wish I didn't make so many mistakes in the pattern.

On the home front my husband has been raising my stress levels by knocking on the doors of heaven but so far St. Peter is keeping him out.  Not too good for my blood pressure and that 4 hour round trip to the hospital isn't too good for my back either.  Now that he seems to be out of danger I am going to sit at home today and sew.

It was tranquil when he was in the danger zone. The minute he starts to improve he is a problem. At the moment he is spitting like a cat.
