I just smile everytime I see these guys I made them just before surgery. I do believe the pattern is from the blog Jelly Wares. I'll link back when I can get to sit at the computer.

There is a halo around our moon tonight (google it I can't link from my phone and no sitting at the computer yet for me)
"halo around the moon, rain/snow will be soon"
(yes that is our moon and no you can't see the halo in it. I couldn't zoom out far enough to catch it)

It only took 4 days

Here is a teacher gift. It is the Breckenridge Cowl. I had made one before for my mom and it was a really quick knit (started and finished during a hockey game). This one took a little longer =)

I am laying here in bed listening to my kids sing Queen. Granted it is " we will rock you". But hey it is in my opinion better then most music out today. ( ahhh I am turning into my parents. They used to say that!) anyway I am pretty sore and bruised. More sore then pain. Each day better then the last. Today I could actually go potty by myself!! =). It's the little things you know?

Sadly no knitting has been going on and I only have till wednesday for three if them ( they're teacher gifts). They are the only gifts I am going to stress over. Everything else will just have to go with the flow

We finally had snow

And judging by my girls big smiles they loved it. We had so much fun walking to school on this morning that we were late. Oops. = )

In other news. I am minutes away from another surgery. Gotta love smart phones. I am blogging from pre op. : )

the trial was great. so great in fact that the doctor squeezed me in for the permanent one on the 16th. That is a week away. This just happens to be really surgery, not an outpatient thing. So basically I am trying to get everything done by the 16th since I am not sure of what I am going to be able to do afterwards. If it works as well as the trial I am golden. Just wish there was a way to push Christmas back.

In other news winter has showed itself (though it looks like it will be temporarily since it will be in the 50's in a few days) I made these last year and they are really warm.

my mittens

mittens 2

Cascade 220 (grey) and Noro silk garden, a set of needles and my brain = these mittens. They are a little snug but when i wore the yesterday the grew just enough so there were no to tight.

How I spent my morning

After getting up earlier then I have since I was breastfeeding, to travel to the lovely hospital this is what I came home with. ( I am still groggy so hopefully all makes sense). This is a Spinal Cord Stimulator - trial version. I have electricity running into my spinal column to over stimulate the nerves so the pain is less. I know I haven't really talked about my back here before but for almost 2 years now I have been in a LOT of pain. The doctors can not fix it so it is all pain management at this point. I can tell you right now the only pain I feel is my very sore back muscles that spasm every so often. The other pain that has caused my life to be hell- not much feeling of that. I am in love with that little wire. = ). Hopefully this has been enough writing to hide the picture. Sadly that wire will come out on Monday = (. But if all is ok by Monday I will get scheduled for the permanent one.
