I'm making pretty good progress on a ripple blanket.
I want to use it out on the back porch this spring, when the air is still cool in the morning, and I can sit out on the Adirondack chairs with my coffee, the blanket draped across my lap, feet up, like a lady of leisure.
The last few weeks have been nuts, and working on this blanket has kept me distracted. I have been caught up in doctor visits, blood tests, biopsies, an ultra sound, and even a trip to the emergency room.
Crochet (and a prescription for Xanax, hahaha) is soothing and the colors make me happy! It seems I'm not going to be able to sail through menopause like I had hoped. Here comes too much information. Since I've been bleeding off and on like someone sacrificed a small animal, and I'm waaaay to old for this, (53), I'm scheduled for a full abdominal hysterectomy next month. Well pooh.
Good news is, I will be able to leave this bloody roller coaster behind me, and wake up from surgery with an estrogen patch slapped on my arse, never to hot flash, cramp, or bleed again. YES!!! I already have an idea of what projects I can work on, because I'm looking at a six week recovery time, on the couch, surrounded by yarn and hook. (well, not the whole six weeks, but I will only be strong enough at first to hold a crochet hook. Poor me.) Bring it on.
