knitting books are my therapy.
My hand is recovering well from my surgery
which was just one week ago.
I am finding it quite difficult to be idle, though.
that when you can't knit...
all you want to do is,
I think it will be about a month before I can knit again.
In the meantime,
the best therapy is turning out to be knitting books.
I'm enjoying going through my "dog-eared" knitting books
and planning my next projects.
I'm also finding my down time
a perfect opportunity to treat myself to a few new books.
At the top of my book list is Louisa Harding's
new spring/summer pattern book
My Ravelry pen pal Teresa in England has
agreed to join me for a knit-along
with Louisa's gorgeous new Delicia scarf
from the Aster book.
The Delicia scarf is knit in Louisa's luxurious silk yarns,
Teresa has a jump start on me and has already ordered her yarns.
So, now I'm off to find my book and yarns.
Planning such a beautiful new spring project...
is perfect therapy.
