I've been quiet but still a little productive. I've finished my first tiger sock from the yarn Maylin gifted and I'm over half way through sock the second. These are a little larger than my normal pattern. I figured that it would be good to have a variety of sizes to show at the end of the year. What do you think? Isn't the yarn gorgeous?
Opal 6-fach 150g, 420 m ball.Colour tiger, naturally:)
I think I'll have around 40 gms left, enough for some smaller socks also:)
Received a fabulous gift for the hospice socks from Sue in Australia, aren't these colours luscious and don't they go well with the card Sue sent? Thank you Sue I will really enjoy knitting these up.
Then Rosie(Caught knitting) sent me the results of her kool aid experiment at Skip North, dyed on trekking and perfect hot summer colours aren't they? Thanks again Rosie. This has made me determined to find a microwave and test the kit that Vicky sent me:))
I've been awfully tired hence the quiet blog. This travellling has got to me as well as Mr Mog. We have only 3 more days to go though:) I've been very sire, painfully so and exceedingly tired.
How is Mr mog you say? He is doing brilliantly, a little sore on his skin where the treatments go, very tired from early evening and we have had many early 9pm nights. But over all he is well. So many people have said they can't see anything wrong with him. I think that is one of the major drawbacks, if that is the right word, with prostate cancer. You don't look ill, the symptoms can be embarassing for the age group that it usually attacks and for that reason they never like to go and be checked out. But please anyone with male family members experiencing difficulty passing water, or change in the way they pass water , do get it checked out.
You know it makes sense.
After Friday we have 6 weeks to wait to see the Oncologist and get the results. To see if it is a cure or remission. We all know what the hope is don't we?
It will be good to have next week as a lazy week, to get up when we like and not to have to travel. Most appointments have been between 8.30 and 9.40am so early days each time.
I'm keeping fingers crossed we can afford to go to Wonderwool, not to buy anything but for the social aspect and meeting up with online friends. I still haven't found a place to stay overnight that isn't sky high prices. If we are meant to go we will
We are staying over at a friends tonight, that will make the morning journey a little less stressful tomorrow. We are going for a bar meal tonight then back to Ms for a leisurely catch up.
