I can knit again! Here's proof....
I have had torn tendons for several months in my left hand and after a visit with the USA hand surgeon... and after having my hand/arm in a cast for a month (and barely skipped having to have hand surgery) and finally in a brace for months he told me: NO KNITTING/etc... while I was recovering....

However, I am finally well enough to knit something... and last week--I worked on a baby gift that was long due... I had missed knitting so much and it was great to check in to see all the knitted items here.

Thanks! I thought that the yarn would go with any color of coat/sweater ?? Or whatever they will put on a 3 month old for her first winter!

The gift set is adorable and such pretty colours. So glad you are able to knit again. Are you enjoying life in Germany?

Thanks all...

Yes, I'm enjoying Germany. I live in such a beautiful place- and now that I finally have the INTERNET in my home -- I can update my blog- which I have done for the past couple of days.
There are some photos of the local area that I posted in July or August when I first arrived on the blog too.
I've been unpacking some today- so, I haven't knitted any yet today.
