Thanks, all

for your comments and interest in my vest dilemma - I think I'll swatch (yeah, I know, you heard it here first) - right, SWATCH, the pattern stitch with the lighter and darker yarns alternating, and see if it looks more like a design element than a cheesey effect. Maybe I'll organize a betting pool to see which seems more likely.

Tomorrow, however, I am off for a different sort of adventure - having a little bit of surgery ("just a bit of harmless brain alteration, Gromit" - not really) after which I am told to expect a 6 - 8 week period of recovery.

Part of me is envisioning lots of knitting and reading, lots of lady-of-leisure activity. The bigger part of me knows that being out of commission for that long will likely kill me - or result in injury to those who dare to come close to me. I won't be able to drive for the first week, and the loss of independence, however temporary... well, let's just say it may not be pretty.

So I'll hopefully be back online in a few days... for now I have to figure out which audiobooks to put on my iPod (which I was told not to bring in with me because they are being STOLEN while people are IN SURGERY - so the boys will have to bring it in tomorrow night - and they tell me this as a matter of routine!!), and which knitting projects I might be able to play with... because I have my priorities in order...

later, dudes...

Good luck Dude. Stock up on DVDs and knitting projects for the time you are laid up. And wine. wine is always good.

Can't you take your ipod with you into surgery? Subliminal messaging and all that!
Good luck with it all and hope your recovery is trouble free.

how did the surgery go? You've left us hanging...

As for stealing from people in surgery, that's been happening for years. When I went in for my gallbladder removal, I left everything at home, wedding rings, earrings, purse, I walked in wearing a sundress, a pair of underwear, sandals and my eyeglasses. That was it! Paranoid, maybe, but why risk it?
