Return of the Baby Hats

A wedding started the resurge of baby hats. I suppose that sounds strange. My basket has been full of baby hats all winter. I’m not quite up to walking the distance to the baby floor of the hospital I spent a month in last summer so I lost interest in knitting them for awhile. Until the wedding.
The wedding was planned for last Saturday, and I had the pleasure of seeing the bride, her mother and her bridesmaids prepare for the wedding. What fun it was to be a part of the preparation, even if it was just my basement, staircase, and the toddlers we had fun keeping an eye on. The baby hats came into play when the photographer was looking for good lighting to photograph the rings. My knitting is a very visible thing in my home. Baskets of yarn, half-begun projects, finished projects and needles adorn my home. A few questions later and my finished collection of baby items were strewn across my coffee table.
A couple of my hats and a baby blanket were sold. There was even mentioned interest in more purchases. My mind is now churning out ideas faster than I can knit. I’m excited about the baby hats again.
The variety of styles are leaping off my needles. I even ordered more needles and yarn so I can keep churning out the projects. I needed this distraction as I have had frustrating news about my stump. Now I can bury myself in yarn and projects so I will not worry and fret over something of which I have no control. The MRI is a week away and I am so excited about all the patterns I can distract myself with. Happy knitting people!

An Update with Wash Cloths and Dish Towels

Well, I haven’t been on in a while, with good reason. This past summer I spent a month in the hospital beginning with a procedure to destroy the vascular malformation in my foot and ending with partial amputation of my right foot. Basically I am left with my right heel and a little bit (centimeter or two) to flex up and down. I unfortunately was too medicated to complete much knitting, but the stack of hanging dish towels I had made in advance served me well. As women dropped off meals, or helped with the upkeep of my home, or watching my kids,, the towels were passed out, along with wash cloths as the towels ran out. I am very happy I had finished them and was pleased to pass them on as a gift in return for all the help so graciously offered. We have been blessed beyond measure in the midst of what has been the most difficult time in our family. Spending a month away from my children was harder than I care to go through again. I am slowly getting back to myself, knitting baby hats, towels, wash cloths, and looking at starting up some scarves for the school year. I am also transitioning as most of my kids are now in public school. I only have two kids to distract me so my knitting should be doubled, if it wasn’t for the foot distraction. Thank you for continuing to visit my website and hopefully I will not take such a long break.
