    Oh no, Jean.
    How hideous!

    Hope the pain, and boredom, don't drive you bonkers.

    My mother broke her leg (tibia and fiblua) at 70 and claims that she spackled it together with cottage cheese. Bring on the dairy products and we'll keep the knitting needles warm. I hope someone will read all these good wishes to you.

    Wishing you speedy recovery! Perhaps you'll find some way to do a bit of knitting when the initial pain subsides.

    oh - that's just not fair - just when the Princess was moving along at such a nice pace!

  9. I really hope you are not in too much pain and that you heal as fast as possible. Ask for drugs, lots and lots of drugs. Better living through chemicals and all that. Get well soon!

    Oh, Jean, I'm so sorry you are hurt. I hope you have a speedy recovery. Hopefully you can still click the mouse and make those ebay purchases. ;-)

  11. Great Og! Take care of yourself, and get well quickly! I've suffered through broken arms (broke my right are twice when I was a kid), but I was much, much younger then.

    Best wishes for quick healing.

  12. Oh no! :(

    Oh no!

    That was just about the worst that could happen - but just to cheer you up - my grandma (80) broke her arm this spring and was knitting after 2 weeks, though slowly and with her cast on.
    Take good care of your arm, best well-wishes from Denmark.

  16. so sorry to hear about your arm:-(

    Does that mean you can blog about your knittingbooks for a while??

    You seem to have quite a few, and some of them have sounded really interesting.

    Like everybody else I hope your arm will heal fast and without any complications!

  17. So sorry to hear about the fall. Good luck with the mending. My guess is that with the forced hiatus you will have every stitch of Alexander's sweater planned before ever casting on.

    Dear Jean,
    Hope your arm will mend well and quick. Have been following your blog quietly and hope you will update us on your healing progress, albeit just short notes.

    Take care,

  19. Oh Jean, what a pigging nuisance!

    Maybe you can experiment with some coloured pencils and graph paper regarding your Fair Isle ideas?

    Colouring in squares must be quicker than swatching and easier at present - unless you're a mollydooker like me ;)

    Best wishes

  30. I broke my left elbow a year ago. No fun at all, but be good to yourself and do your therapy and you'll be knitting again in no time. (I think someone actually told me that knitting is good for regaining your mobility once your bones are solidly in place again.)

    Best wishes.

  32. I hope you're feeling better and healing up little by little. Perhaps some cider? Princess will be there when you're feeling better, and we're here if you feel lonely.

  33. so sorry...hope you're up and at 'em soon!

  34. Well, bugger. Just as the Princess was making such stateley progress, too. Like other's have said, I hope healing is swift and not painful and that the break didn't involve hardware having to be inserted. The cast must make all the other usual activities in life a bit of a trial as well : ( I hope you can get some drafting done in the interim period. Hugs, Kate

    I love watching the progress of your Princess - it's just breathtakingly beautiful.

  42. Jean,
    I hope you have a very speedy recovery . . . drink lots of milk (better late than never) and do all the exercises suggested to get you back in form.

  43. I'm so sorry. May you have a speedy & full recovery! In the mean time, typing & surfing with one hand may be easier than knitting one-handed.

    Dear Jean,
    I've been reading your blog all summer, and just wanted to thank you for pointing me toward Pam Dawson in an earlier post. I went to eBay and found several of her books, and now I am enjoying them greatly. I actually had one of them in my collection already, but had not registered the name of the designer, just knew I really liked the patterns in that "Traditional Island Knitting" book.

    I am sorry about your arm, and really miss reading about your Vogue knitting collection. Thanks for the good advice!

    I used to read your blog before I decided blog-reading was taking up too much of my time. Today I had some time to kill so I decided to look at a few knitting blogs. I'm so sorry you're injured! How darn inconvenient for a knitter...

    ReplyDelete
  48. Well shoot! I came by to apologize for not following up that Kitchener stitch thing because of disasters right and left and I see that my cloud of ill fortune has gotten you too!

    Get well soon. Think healing thought.

    Just wondering how you are doing. I was enjoying having discovered your blog and now you have disappeared! Hope your arm is healing and that you will soon be sharing your knitting and other adventures with us.

  50. I'm sure that my empathy doesn't even hold a flame to your pain & misery but you have it nonetheless. I really hope that you have a restful convalescence and a full recovery!!

  51. Jean, I just found your blog and I love it! Please get well soon and do more posts. We need your wisdom.
