A New Dana’s Edit & an Update

I came out of my hiatus just briefly to write a new post for Modern Daily Knitting. I decided I wanted to revisit a piece that I wrote a year ago and how that impacts me.

I’m still taking my time and not writing. The first six weeks out of the hospital were exhausting and I just needed to rest. These last two weeks, I’ve felt a lot better but I know I still have a long year of recovery ahead of me. So for now, I’m giving myself the chance to rest before I have to do more. I am knitting again and creating, but I’ll be back in this space when I feel like I have the energy to give it my all.

I hope you are well, wherever you are!
