when i don’t post for a while, so much happens! i suppose i’ll start with the bad news and move on towards better stuff…
grandma went in for her surgery on thursday, but they didn’t end up operating because they found too many tumors. it’s stage four, which is certainly worse than we had hoped for. she will probably start chemo soon, to shrink some of the tumors down so they can operate. we just have to keep praying and hoping for the best…
mom and grandma (not the sick one) came and visited me today… we ran errands and ate and went shopping. it was a really good day. after the week i had, i needed one! i got some really gorgeous clothes and a hair straightener and food. ^^
i’ve been working on fun-fur hats for nearly two months now (in between other projects, of course) and i’m finally done! when i went to count them, there were 22! i was pretty amazed; i didn’t realize that there were so many! forgive that the photo is wacky… something about the light was strange. i really felt so very seuss, haha! (and the iron stain thing in the upper right corner was here when i got in this room… i’m smart enough to use an ironing board!)
fun-fur chemo caps (22)
pattern: lion brand fun fur chemo cap
yarn: lots of different types!
needles: size 15 straights
comments: these were suprisingly fun to knit, especially since i could start one at the beginning of an hour-long TV show and be done by the end of the show. that’s about as instant as it gets! i hope the kids like them! ^^ oh, and these were for kate’s caps.
blanket of hope square #2
pattern: woozy cloth
yarn: lion brand wool color majestic mountain
needles: size 7 straights
size: ~6.5in x 6.5in
comments: i’ve found that i really like using dishcloth patterns for blanket squares. there don’t seem to be too many blanket square patterns out there, but dishcloth patterns? they’re everywhere, and many are very cool, too.
ok, bedtime! i have pleeenty of work to do tomorrow! can’t wait for spring break… !
