Sidelined but not idle

I've been very busy since my last blog post. Surgery sidelined me for several weeks, but the recovery phase allowed me to do some awesome sock knitting. I'll be photographing my latest in a few days and posting the pictures here. Several are going to be given away as gifts to friends and family.

All of the downtime has also given me a chance to order more yarn (like I needed it -but hey, what's need got to do with it?) and plan some future projects.

I'm knitting a pair of Monkey socks right now from a Cookie A pattern, and I'm really enjoying them. The first sock is finished and fits like it was made for me. LOL! The yarn is so soft and caresses my feet. Can't wait until I have the other one made.

And the downtime has given me a chance to think about the mystery series that I'm writing. So looking forward to finishing the edits and starting on book 2.

My non-fiction short story, "Man's Best Friend" will be out in less than 5 weeks in A Cup of Comfort for Cat Lovers. I'm planning a few book signings and getting some promotional material ready. Busy, busy, busy.

To relax, I've been enjoying reading "The Lincoln Lawyer" by Michael Connelly. I can highly recommend this book. I didn't want it to end and it kept me turning the pages. Connelly is a master at plot twists, something that I aspire to.

Until next time when I have those pictures for you...
