I’m fried today. I was okay until yesterday afternoon and then I got really, really anxious about this surgery today.
I’ve been sitting all afternoon with a report on the computer screen in front of me. I’ve written about 10 sentences, most of which make no sense. But I give myself a pass today.
So the un-post – a justified fallback, since a couple of you asked for more knitting posts interspersed with the ceaseless yammering that is NaBloPoMo chez Round is Funny.
Here’s my Buttonhole Bag, from a free pattern from Mason Dixon knitting (the colors came out a little strange in the photo – can someone help me figure out how to take pictures of yarn without screwing up the coloration?). It’s the first thing I’ve ever made for myself, and the first thing I’ve ever felted. I love it, love it, love it.
It’s a little small for work but I cram everything in it anyway because it makes me very happy, especially when I get a compliment on how cute it is and I get to say, with all modesty intact, “I KNOW!”
(Click on the photo for info about the pattern and the process).
ETA: He came through okay. He’s got a long way to go, but the surgery went well, and the cancer was right where they thought it was and nowhere else – the best news we could have gotten today. Big breath.
