I'm sure you all know what this is - a Sunnyboy pouch made by the divine Quiltingmick from Button Tree Lane! I even got to choose the clever 'knitting' fabric (it's screen printed by AuntyCookie in Melbourne). LOVE it. It's my new knitting tool kit.
A progress pic on my 'Jejune Jumper' - started the second sleeve last night - should have this little baby finished by the weekend! The body is a bit twisted in this pic ... there are equal sized ribbed areas at the sides.
I've been very confused and unsure of what to do about my hip. I saw my surgeon yesterday briefly (when picking up my x-rays) and he's advised me to get as much use from my hip as I can, before going in for surgery (and yes, it does need to be a total hip replacement). Because I'm so young for this operation, I'm looking at at least 1 and maybe even 2 revisions (replacement of the prosthesis - a very difficult operation) - and with each one the risks and complications increase a lot.
He says I'll know when I need it - and since I clearly DON'T know at the moment, I guess I'm not ready ... it does hurt more, but I'm not incapacitated by it, and can still walk, do bellydancing, and be pretty mobile.
I know I'm looking at surgery in the near future - within a year or two - but not next month. Which is nice. Gives me time to sort stuff out in my head, get a bit of counselling, prepare for the whole thing.
OK, off for my Jejune Day! Staying HOME all day, with time for tea, bellydancing practice, knitting, reading, sewing (stay tuned!), a go at some needle felting, and maybe even a bit of painting. Or maybe none of the above, and just sleeping all day, that also sounds bloody appealing at the moment!
