The Boredom Really Sets in

A brief pictorial review: This is the view from where I sit. Still.

Exhibit A: A much smaller bandage - and no cast!
Exhibit B: That is a hairy leg. I haven't quite reconciled "You can take a shower, just cover it in a plastic bag" and "Zero weight bearing". I'm working on this, though.
Exhibit C: That's Sally's cage. She is such a good and patient soul. She gets out of the cage now for several hours a day and seems to be doing much better. When I open the cage to put her in there, she just goes in and makes her nest. It would be almost better if she would resist.
Exhibit D: My crutches. (Nearly) 2 weeks down, 6 to go. They don't look like much but they are my new best friend. I may not have such kind words for them once I go back to work next week.
Exhibit E: The bathroom. The outer reaches of my adventures these last 9 days.
Exhibit F: That's the way to the rest of the house. I haven't gone that way very often lately but I've ventured out of this room 4 times today. Progress comes in little doses.

I've been watching a lot of Grey's Anatomy. Love this show. I'm so glad that ABC has been rerunning it this summer. God bless the DVR.

I've also been knitting. A sampling:

Jen sent Dorothy these dragonfly disclothes that I immediately loved. She sent me the link for the dragonfly pattern over at Purple Duckie and I found the pattern for this duck.
So cute. I had some Sugar n' Cream leftover from the ill-fated baby washcloths so I whipped one up. I still need to weave in the ends. Hopefully Courtney needs a baby washcloth.

I've also been working on the blocks for Mama's blanket. Only minimal progress has been made on this but in addition to the mutlicolored block I'd already finished, I've also done these:
That's the blue themed block on the top left. The bright one is about 2/3 complete.

So that's it in a nutshell. Enjoy the long weekend.

Hey, look at all you're accomplishing while laid up! :0)

The knitting all looks great. I've never seen Gray's Anatomy - I'll have to check it out.

Looks like you've been pretty productive.

I like those stripey blocks.

Lvoe your stripey blocks and glad you had fun at Purple Duckie. Doesn't she have the cutest patterns!? Sally is too sweet - glad she's feeling better and don't worry too much about the cage. It's good she sees it as her nest. Just hard b/c you still see it as a cage. Enjoyed the tour of your little world. Good luck with work this week. Remember that crutches can be used as weapons :)
