I've been meaning to for some time, and had bought a pair of needles, the Stitch 'n' Bitch Handbook (which I <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> ) and some yarn, but I never seemed to have the time. Then this weekend I had to have an emergency appendectomy, and spent hours & hours sitting in a hospital bed...knittting! I've already figured out how to make a slip knot, cast on, and knit rows, and I have about 7" of plain knit scarf done already. I know this must sound really pitiful to all of you experienced knitters, but I'm pretty darn excited! :LOL

Congrats on learning to knit!<br><br>
You'll soon find out how addicting both knitting and building your stash of yarn are, if you haven't already. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Hope you're feeling better soon!

I've recently learned also. Almost done with my first garter stitch scarf. I even purled my initial on it. Happy knitting and I hope you're well.

I hope you feel better soon! That's some rough surgery- but I hope that knitting helped take some of the pain. So... did you actually decipher directions on pain meds? If so- that's amazing! It usually takes me all my brain power on a good day!<br><br>
Love Sarah

that's great, jaye! it's *so* addicting -- maybe not as much as c-d'ing. but it lasts longer! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
