Yesterday my mother had her much anticipated second cataract surgery, and it would seem, after today’s follow up appointment, that it went as well as the first.
I was ready for both yesterday and today, carefully planning my crochet so that I would have something portable at all times lest I run out of crochet projects to work on while I waited.
First up was the future felted fat bag:
In need of ends being woven in and then trimmed, this is where I elected to begin my crochet day yesterday.
Once the ends were dispensed with, I got out my Red Heart Super Saver medium purple and made another piece of the border for my 2012 North Carolina State Fair project:
By this point, my mother’s surgery was done, and I took her home where she could continue her recovery.
Today, when the sun rose on one of the last four full days I have to work on future fat bag and the larger state fair piece, my mother had her first follow-up appointment for the surgery, and while her eye was examined and measurements were taken, I worked on yet another piece for the border which, in the bustle of the day, I forgot to photograph.
Once I got my mom home from today’s appointment, I set aside the other border piece, I went back to work on the future felted fat bag, gathering two of the ends:
crocheting six hyperbolic curlicues for a tassel:
and getting an idea of how it would look when completed:
Eventually, I had to make dinner, and my cat, Stripes, saw to it that no one (myself included) could mess with the future felted fat bag:
Over the next three days, I have to stay focused on what remains to be done for both projects, and if need be, I will take a moment to crochet myself some blinders so that I am not distracted from my goal.
