So....

So I'm thinking that a smart person might have decided to take it a bit easy if one was trying to get off pain pills.  MY approach, however, generated some pretty serious pain by evening, and of course by the time I was in pain AND tensed which generated even MORE pain, I ended up taking full drug doses last night and needing a rest today.  The GOOD news is that resting today gave me time to make two new ornaments today:
and I think I'm smart enough to try half doses next time. 

These are improvised ornaments with worsted weight acrylic yarns, so they're much bigger balls than the color-work ones, but I am very pleased with them.  They're both made with sparkly yarns and look very festive.  The acrylic isn't nearly as easy to work with as the wool fingering, but it's still fun and it didn't require using any charts.  ALWAYS a consideration when back on pain meds...........
