As of today, it’s been ten months since my tibial plateau fracture, and I recently realized that my knee has recovered enough that I can now crouch awkwardly on the floor for long enough to block a knitted thing! Let the blocking begin!

These are the images that go with my last blog post, FO: Arboreal.

Yesterday I mentioned that I finished my Arboreal sweater while I was in rehab. This project traveled with me to the hospital. It laid by my side after my surgery, even though I didn’t work on it. And it went to rehab with me, where I finally had the energy to start knitting again. It was very satisfying to finish this on the final night that I was there. Very time-to-start-a-new-chapter like.

Unfortunately, I can’t really take a full picture of it to show off the yoke, because taking pictures involves a degree of mobility that I currently lack. However, it’s lovely, and I’m looking forward to wearing it this winter.

As usual, I eliminated the waist shaping and picked up extra stitches for the sleeves.

If this pattern combined with these colors doesn’t say #fallknits, I don’t know what does.

I cast on my Arboreal sweater on Thursday morning, which is actually my Sunday, and I finished the yoke chart on actual Sunday morning (my Wednesday) before I headed off to work. The chart is rather easy to follow, but I can also be very single-minded about certain projects and tasks, so I just kind of plowed through it. And with the brief short row section complete, I can now mindlessly knit through the body and sleeves.

Initially I wasn’t going to start this sweater yet. There’s a Lopi sweater I was going make first, but then I saw a hat that I want to make with leftovers of this lovely Baa Ram Ewe Dovestone DK. But that means I need leftover yarn. Which means I need to knit this sweater.

So here I am: knitting this sweater.
