I spent close to two months after extensive back surgery last January in a rehab facility -- a nice one, but not nearly as much fun as being home and healthy would have been. About two weeks into the process, a friend came to visit me one evening with some yarn and needles we had bought after she expressed an interest in knitting. There was no yarn on the needles and I asked if perhaps she wasn't really that interested in the knitting process. She confessed she wasn't, and I offered to make the scarf for her. It was the most relaxing and creative time I had spent in that place, and she had a lovely scarf the next day. I was able to do one or two more projects while incarcerated, and if I ever find myself in that sort of situation again, I'll plan for it with a few simple projects (doesn't seem like such a good idea to do anything too complex while on serious medication) to tide me over and maybe present to some of the staff, who were wonderful to me.
