My daughter is having surgery in a week and a half! Wow I just realized this was sneaking up on us. So her surgery is only 2 hours but.... she will be in the hospital at least two days. I am going to be staying in the hospital with her in her room.
I am thinking about items to keep us both busy. Her list is easy but I am trying to think of what knitting projects I should bring while she is resting or watching DVDs.
Socks of course are easy but should I bring a bigger project? Will I get bored with socks? What if I run out of knitting? Will I die? Am I a bad mother for thinking of what to knit when I should be worried about my daughter?
I have always wanted to knit the Swallowtail Shawl from Interweave Knits and I have the issue and the yarn maybe I should start that? From what I hear it is a fast easy knit maybe I could finish it in the time I am there? With my 3 doily projects that I did for christmas gifts I think I can handle that project.
I also have the yarn and pattern for the Knit Picks Telemark Ski Sweater but maybe that is too much of an extensive project to bring with me?
I am also working on a baby sweater maybe I should just bring that?
