A Brief Intermission

At least I hope it is going to be brief. I am having eye surgery over the next two weeks and won't be able to read for a while. I am hoping that I will be able to continue knitting in some form or another. So if I am absent from your blogs you will know why. I will return as soon as possible!

In the meantime I leave you with another shawlette, the Lacy Baktus. I knitted this with Noro Silk Garden Sock. I have to say (yet again) that I love the Noro colours but I'm still not mad about the yarn. This skein had only one knot for which I am grateful. The yarn also only broke once - this is due to the very uneven spinning of the yarn. But despite this I am still pleased with the end product.

Good luck with your surgery. Lucky you don't need "eyes" to knit. I love the Noro colours, have not yet used it, and keep getting put off with other crafters experience with it. So much money for yarn

Best wishes for a speedy return to knitting and reading from the surgery. And hugs. Noro drives me up the wall - such beautiful colours but as you say the yarn sometimes leaves a lot to be desired.

You'll be missed, Amanda! I wish you good luck with your surgery and let's hope you recover quickly.
I fully agree with you about Noro: I like the colours, sometime knit with it, but am often disappointed with the yarn.

How did the eye surgery go? I have been thinking about you. Hopefully you are back to knitting, if not now, then very soon.
