My Knitting Corner
This is the view from my knitting corner. The little space I have next to the window. This is my view. Pretty nice, huh? The space between the window and my chair is where I stow projects in progress... I have a difficult time keeping it tidy since I usually have too many projects going at once. I've not been having a lot of time to knit this week; it's been rather crazy around here... to say the least. My husband severely sprained his ankle playing tennis with our son. This week, we've been to the Emergency Room, the Orthopaedic Specialist, a Physical Therapist, and then back to the Orthopaedic Specialist. My husband does so much around the house, so this week I've been busy helping him get around and taking care of his chores and mine... and tennis playing since our son misses his Pop for playing tennis. Despite this, I started a scarf with beads and I made a cover for my husband's amazing foot brace/boot/walking contraption. The boot reminds me of a snow ski boot with an open toe. It's padded inside and has straps for adjustment and is rigid enough for support but allows for movement (walking). It actually has an air bladder built inside it so he can pump it up for more support or release the air if it's too tight. Here's a photo of the cover I made (he wanted the cover to keep it clean when he has to go out and about). It has a zipper and a drawstring top.
A few shots of the beaded scarf...
On another note, our son had a football championship tournament on Monday. His team was undefeated this season and they won the championship as well. You can see the final score in the background... Home Team 40; Visitors 14! It was a good end to our son's football career; next year, he's switching to tennis.
