#05 Open Front Cardigan
Wow, I totally missed September blog-wise. And it wasn't until the end of September that I remembered that I forgot to do my annual list of knits. Now that I'm retired I don't have the memory jog of returning to school to remind me of my little tradition.

Looking back, I was surprised at how many things I'd knit this year.
A week and a half ago I had surgery for a detached retina, breaking 62 years of a surgery-free life. (Though one nurse had to burst my bubble and point out that wisdom tooth extraction is surgery.) So I've had to take it easy, can't drive yet, and had to keep my head in a downward position. Fortunately that is a knitting position, so next time I'll show items I completed and items I started during recovery.
