Long weeks and Knitting again

I've been back to work two weeks now. Still having some problems with shoulder and lung. These things just take time. Healing is a process.
Been knitting some again, finally. Seems the anesthesia has finally cleared enough and my clumsy hands have finally got a bit of their 'mojo' back. It does feel good to do something again. I was messing up plain garter stitch before, 13 stitches becam 16, then 18, then 20 in only about 6 rows and I couldn't figure out why. Time to put knitting down. I still have to go back and fix that scarf. Posting pictures in a minute of current knitting. Am working happily on second sock in Petticoat sock pattern and also have started brim of hat. Hat has a cable brim and then you pick up stitches for the top. Is a nice look. I bought a lovely burgudy cashmere/wool blend for me. There is a matching scarf also. I am planning on doing this for DD for Christmas I think. I have some nice woolease she will like. She will just throw in washer so don't want to use hand wash stuff. Woolease is nice enuff for hats and scarfs and machine washable.
Also got 3 new spinning books that I ordered this week. Have scanned through but am looking forward to a good read. That and my Interweave Knits came in mail. Bill and I are planning on going to Highland games this weekend and also are working at the pumpkin patch sale at church tonight so I do have a busy weekend.
Weeks are long. Bill has very long days with commuting two hours each way to work. We have a lot to do towards fixing up house before putting on market. I really need to start getting some stuff sorted and packed. Bill wants to go ahead and put some stuff in storage so it will be easier and out of way. Plus we need to get rid of excess kids stuff that is here and they don't come and get or want. It has to go.
