Springtime in the Rockies

This is what I woke up to yesterday morning - poor little daffodils! The good news, though, is that all the white stuff was gone by late afternoon.

This has been an interesting week; DH had his shoulder surgery on Monday (the second surgery on the same shoulder in the past 16 months). We're all very hopeful that this will finally relieve the pain he has been suffering since the initial injury in August of 2005, during his deployment in Mississippi and Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. I was able to convince him to take an additional day off, so he didn't return to work until yesterday.

I did get quite a bit of knitting done while we were at the surgery center. The Warm Woolies vest now has about four inches complete, and I had done about the same amount on my first Broadripple sock. Unfortunately, the sock has made multiple visits to the frog pond, primarily due to "gauge of the moment" issues. I am now about eight rounds into the pattern (again!), this time on US#1 (2.5 mm) needles. For someone who usually has to go up at least one needle size, using this small a needle for Regia 6 fadig yarn is a bit bizarre.

Well, back to work...

I hope this surgery helps DH feel better!

We're having some beautiful weather now! Maybe we're done with the snow :)
