Shele, knitting is not that difficult. Well, at least not if you don't pick a difficult project. A sweater...yep that's on the advanced side. But lately, I've been knitting chemo caps for a friend who brings them to a chemo treatment center. They're pretty much as mindless as it gets, and the cotton I use comes in some pretty entertaining color combinations:

And then sometimes I make these, as they make great little gifties if you couple them with a yummy type of soap:

Well I'll be recovering in the summer (as long as meds will allow) I'll be working on a massive tan that will be the envy of others all summer. I will also be knitting squares to donate to our local "Out of the Cold Program". They take the donated squares and sew them together into blankets and then give them to people in need. I figure by doing something good for others, that will be easily put down but not physically demanding should keep my brain and my heart in good condition while I lay around like a princess and command my family to do my every whim!

springB-that is so nice of you! I wish I knew how to make squares or do anything past a basic stitch. Sounds like a great cause!

I guess I will have to find a website to teach me how to knit left handed. I think that is what is screwing me up. The book I got shows how right handed. So not coordinated enough for that. So I will do my research. My plan is to make hot pads like my grandma made me. I love them.

Okay's your knitting lesson. Crystalheart13, you don't need to know anything past the basic already know all that you need to know. You need size 4.5 needles. Put on (or "cast on" in proper knitting terminology) 35 stitches. Knit your little heart away, back and forth until you have a square. Cast off the stitches and knot the end. have a square that can be put together in a blanket. The colour of the squares is irrelevant. This is just to fulfil a basic human need to be warm....not a fashion statement. If you want more info, send me a personal email.

Another option that is a little quicker if you know how to crochet is to get some cotton wool and make dish cloths. These are great to make ahead for a hostess gift, a gift for that hard to buy for person who has a birthday, or stocking stuffers for the special adult women in your life. I give them to my staff. could be AHEAD of the gift game because you have some "down" time!!!

ohhh, I like the idea of the making the gifts now....maybe I can make some candles for people. I'll use some of my time to think about it! SpringB-thanks for the suggestion. But, I don't know how to do that, I meant I can do a basic cross- stitch. I wish I was better at doing these things.

Hey Girls,

A few months ago I bought an online spanish course and I was doing real well, but let it slide. So I am planning on working on learning spanish. Hopefully it will help me find a job/You almost have to be bilingual english/spanish to get any kind of a job where I live.
I have also become addicted to online jigsaw puzzles on Facebook. They have all these different levels to achieve.
I would also like to get serious about diet, and exercise when I am healed well enough. My daughter is getting married in December and I would like to lose some weight before the wedding.
This is fun..thinking about life after surgery.
Have a good week
