I will put the knitting first so those not interested in our medical trials this year will not have to take part.
So, this week has been productive in the hat area! 5 hats done since last Friday means I have something more to show than slow progress on the 3 big items I am currently knitting.
These were showcased on Wednesday
All fun and quick knits.
Then these cuties flew off of the needles!
I love how the grape color makes the hat look like an eggplant or a grape! Pure accident. The preemie hat makes me think of a seaside with sand, water, and sky.
I misbehaved, not too much, but still, no excuse for adding these lovelies to my closet.
While traipsing around Greenwood with College Girl on Wednesday I snuck into this shop in between lunch and Dr visit. Nice shop with some good lines and a friendly owner, great combo! Short on time I quickly passed through, but kept coming back to this skein. The colors are silver gray, purple, with flecks of what look like red and navy. The photo doesn’t do the purple justice. 530 yards of soooooffftttt merino!!! Oh, if you could only feel this stuff! Not sure what shawl it will become, but it will become something soon!
The book includes about 4-5 patterns I would knit. I got it on Amazon for less than $10.00, so a great buy. The technique for this hat is what was the impetus for purchase. The cover sweater was just a bonus!
Update: The Breast Surgeon in Indy said there is nothing wrong with the incision. It is healing as expected, we just didn’t expect that it would take 3-4 months to fully close. We think that the week CG moved up to school she might have busted a stitch and that added to the complications. We got a more in depth and fuller understanding of the issue of seromas from the surgeon in Indy. We likely were not patient enough with her condition because I had the same surgery at the same age and had no complications. When it’s your kid you are prone to worry and over react some times. But the Indy Dr who saw us couldn’t have been nicer. The Dr locally was not bad, but never went the extra mile to explain what we could expect or what the issue was. We should have done our homework after that first visit. Now we know. Thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts you sent our way, we really appreciate it. We are just very grateful we finally have an answer and she knows how much longer to expect the condition to go on.
