ON STITCH MARKERS AND SURGERY...


Well, this has been an interesting week. It started out Monday morning with an email that told me I had won a set of stitch markers from Shelly. I was very excited. I really never win anything!! And the fun thing is by the time I receive them, tax season will be over and I'll be back to some more concentrated knitting time!!



Not long after that, however, I got a call from Aaron that his back pain was worse and that he could no longer make it to classes. I left work and drove to pick him up. We got him some relief for the pain (i.e. stronger drugs) and scheduled surgery for tomorrow (Friday). We praying for quick relief from the pain and the ability to finish his semester at school. He has strong grades so far, so we are hopeful!!

I've got my knitting bag packed to take to the hospital. Still working on my scarf and Vintage Bubble bag. Itching to cast on some more socks. And now, my friend Sheri has posted her new Loopy Ewe challenge... knitting fingerless gloves for Luba's girls and baby hats for children at a Chinese orphanage. (Meg is adopting a baby from China and taking all the hats with her..how fun is that???) I am SOO excited about the response already that Sheri has received and know that Luba is going to be so encouraged by the knit items!!

Well, short post for today.. will update Sunday.

Until Next Time...
