the gimpster knitter

When last we saw our Intrepid Young Knitter, she had a newly diagnosed avulsion fracture of her left foot. A visit to the orthopedist provided her with a whole new level of stylish footwear.

And how does any serious knitter respond when advised to keep her foot up and rest? "Woo Hoo! More knitting time!"

Like a happy cat in a warm sunbeam, she settled into a comfortable chair with an ipod full o' fantastic podcasts, some semi-solid Araucania yarn, and her cable needle necklace received as a gift from our friend, Leslie Wind. It's pretty enough to wear as a necklace and convenient to use because it's always right there, hanging from its cord.

The cable-crazed kid combined some cables and garter stitch with a funky button from Dad's button stash to come up with one of her newest neckwarmers. The gimpster's on a roll...more to come.

How I love Leah's way of seeing the world! I hope she hangs in there, feels better soon and enjoys the knitting time while she heals...

At least she can knit with her avulsion fracture. Mine was the stupid finger and kept me knitless for weeks.

Get better, soon.

Oh, I hope her foot knits as quickly as she does! :)
