I am spending a lot of time sitting these days. I have to keep my leg elevated because the doctor told me so. This means I have to sit with my feet up... now there's a hardship!
I have discovered that even though I love to read I am no longer keen to read more than one book a day. I tend to fall asleep when reading and I just don't want to sleep all day and then toss and turn all night because I can't sleep.
So I watch TV.................. that's ok as long as PBS has something worth watching but recently they seem to have the series about prohibition on a continuous loop and when you've seen it once it can get a bit boring.
So I pout one of the crime channels on or I watch Sky Arts cos sometimes they have interesting programmes on and I knit. My friend Sian over at FromHighintheSky was talking about knitting blankets with self patterning yarn so I had to go and see what this was all about. I finished up at Love Knitting and decided to buy some self patterning yarn and have a go. I have a lovely baby blanket pattern and it will be interesting to see how it makes up in the yarn. I ordered it yesterday and it has arrived!!!
I am about to return to my chair and elevate my aching leg and give this yarn a go. I will be taking pictures. I just hope Sian has an address so that I can send off my blanket when it is done.
