Donated Baby Hats
The great ladies at 3 Bags Full in Northbrook give me a call when they've got hats for our babies in the Special Care Unit. They are going to have a charity knit night soon, so watch for their email newsletter. I really should whip up a few hats with my leftover yarns. What is your favorite baby hat pattern?
I love Amanda Keeys Baby Beanies Book. She started knitting to embellish her photography!
You never know what twists will turn to get some needles into your hands. I think most of you know that I came back to knitting after 9/11 because I couldn't sleep.
Thanks for the prayers and wishes for my family. My father is in pain but has an IV for pain meds. His path is a bit uncertain right now weighing surgery vs. halo. I know he is in great hands at the hospital. Do you know anyone who needed a halo for neck stability?
I knitted him a prayer shawl a few years ago. He never used it. They just displayed it. I think I will find it and bring it to him at the hospital.
So baby hats, prayer shawls and what else? Oh Radar is somewhat improved and has stopped pulling his fur out. STill a bit off, however. Follow up with our great Vet Doc this week.
OH and Al is moving into her new place soon. I am knitting her a new blanket once she picks a couch. She's thinking grey. So, I could knit her cat's fur color to match.. Helo is a blend of cream and grey. I told her it would be fast and done on big old needles in ribbed stitch like the one I made for my sister last year. Now to find the perfect color grey yarn...but I'll wait until she commits to a couch.
It is simply glorious outside again. I cannot recall a March like this one Ever. I am usually in quite a funk in March. Not so this year, thank goodness with all hell breaking lose otherwise!
