Therapeutic Knitting

Sheri and Cheryl visited me after my surgery, and like true knitting buddies, they presented me with some luscious novelty yarn.

I am making a shawl using a pattern that Cheryl shared with the knitting group a few weeks earlier. The shawl is growing, and once my hands become accustomed to the size 17 needles, it will progress faster. After knitting almost exclusively with a size 2 needles, the 17s feel like clubs.

Thank you, Sheri and Cheryl for providing the perfect therapy: friendship and fiber. You are the greatest!
