Spring colors...but not spring yet...

This is the only spring color in my area.  The wind was strong, the temperature 32...not pleasant.  My friends picked me up and we went out to lunch and stopped for errands.  I'm choosing fabrics for backings and new projects but nothing to show yet.

My arm is feeling better but not healed.  I had X-rays so I know there is nothing broken.  I can't vacuum for a few more days......darn!

That yarn is so pretty and soft looking.

You could always exercise the other arm... I have a friend that taught/made herself be ambidextrous so she could always work...

It has been treacherous at times too. I've been nervous since I got poor bone density results. I'm glad you're heeling with no breaks.

Several months ago, after seeing your dish cloths, I started making them too and enjoy the easy pattern. I have never seen these colors and it's really pretty. I'll have to look for it next time. That's really too bad that you can't vacuum! My arm is fine, so I had to - Ugh!

Falling is never fun. Glad you are recovering. Some down time isn't bad. but not easy when you are active. Spring is coming. Chris

Thanks for the breath of spring! I have not minded winter but yesterday's rain, snow, sleet, wind- wintry mix- I really hate. The slush and melt everywhere, yuck! Bring up the tulips!

Mary said...

I love making these dishcloths too. They are a great project to work on while watching TV. I'm glad you got yourself checked out and know nothing is broken. Hopefully, you'll feel much better soon.

glad you got an x-ray, some times we think we are ok and then later find out it was a hair line crack and make things worse. My little sister went and broke her foot last summer and didn't go to the doctor for months as didn't really think it was anything like that and ended up in a cast for 6 months!

Hope the arm heals fast!

Good news that nothing is broken and even
better you don't have to vacuum. My arms are
both good and I only vacuum when I am having
company.....works for me. Hope you continue to
heal.

Sorry to hear your arm is still sore but YAY - no vacuuming yet!

JJM said...

You find the most delicious colors... from yarn to fabrics. This dish cloth reminds me of mixes of sherbet ice cream.

I would 'baby' that arm till you know it is 100% healed.

ps... as February comes to a close, the weather warnings here in our area are frigid temps and snow all next week ... We have not had the snow storms like you have had... but I am ready to dial in spring.

Take care, Wanda, any hidden injury can take some time, rest up, keep those meds going so pain free days will make life easier. Cheers, Jean.

What pretty yarn : )
I just finished up a pink dishcloth.

Glad to hear your arm is not broken. It's always good to give the vacuum a good rest now and then. Looking forward to seeing your new fabrics/backings.

Sorry to read you fell on the ice. Glad you do not have any breaks, but strains and sprains are sometimes more painful than a break I am told. Get better soon.

Pretty Spring colors. Glad the arm is doing better.

Charlotta said...

But you can knit! The dust isn't going anywhere! I'm glad you had X-rays, it's good to be sure.
Love your spring colors, is the pattern you use for your dish cloths available in a public spot, or otherwise without copyright so you could share it with me? I know lots of knitting patterns are free and can be shared freely. It does look like a great one, and I'd like to try it.

Pat said...

Fortunately you have not broken anything. Yes your cloth is a touch of spring. I wish it would get here. I think today is the day to start bringing out my spring (pastel) quilts. I need the touch of spring in the house.

Can you be my neighbor and show me how to knit those beautiful dishcloths? I received one from my mothers friend before Christmas and it is my favorite dishcloth.

Love your colors and I'm happy you are doing well.

Smiles,
Kelly

Maybe I'll pretend to fall on the ice. Then I won't have to vacuum either. Think it'll work?
Love the colors in the dishcloth.
