Who would have ever guessed that an ice bag would be included in my knitting tools? AH...certainly not me! However, I have found that if I pack one up really full, put it into a plastic grocery bag (yea, I know, we're not supposed to have them anymore...but doggone it, they sure do come in handy! hmmmm must be why I've made so many sack socks! Reduce, reuse, recycle..see? reuse. One of those 'r' words, but I digress...
Back to the story today. If I fill the ice bag, pop it into a reused plastic grocery bag, then put a towel behind it and under it, I can wedge the ice behind my lower back and the chair and sit long enough to get a bit of vertical knitting and crocheting done. Not to mention some vertical living! Wooooo hoooo...what a way to appreciate some living these days-from a vertical perspective!
See what I mean? I'm hoping this will be finished by tomorrow night! That makes 2 down (first one done 4/30/09) and 2 more to go for the twins due in November. But, since multiples generally come early....oh boy, that means I'm really far behind!
Thanks for all of the well wishes for my back..they're gratefully appreciated! Every day I see a little bit of improvement, here's hoping it won't take the full 6 weeks to finish heeling! I have some major deadlines to beat-there are babies on the way!
