clues 1 & 2 done!

clues 1 & 2 done!

This is the current lace project that I am working on. I downloaded the pattern free on Ravelry. It is called “The Vernal Equinox Shawl Surprise” . It was originally a mystery KAL and revealed in clue form until you had the entire pattern. Now, however, you can download the pattern in it’s entirety which is just what I did last night. As the caption says, I have clues one and two done. I am using jaggerspun’s zypher wool-silk yarn in the colorway of “Blue Ice” . I have had this yarn for nearly three years at the least! I have started and stopped atleast two shawls with it. I have finally found the right project for this yarn. The color reminds me both of the melting ice and of the color of these little spring flowers that I cannot remember the name of (I know, I sound stupid).

I have also just joined two more groups on yahoo and both of them are lace shawl/stole kal groups. They aren’t set up for  any specific project, but within the groups they have kal’s for specific projects. One group is lead by a lace shawl/stole designer and it’s his designs we have kal with.  Anyway, I have (as you can probably figure out) finally decided to embrace the lace!

On the personal home front: my group councelor is quiting at the end of this coming week. She is moving to another state. My therapist, at the same place as the group councelor, is also leaving but is doind so for a better paying job. (Who can realy blame her.) So needless to say I am dealing with some abandoment issues at the moment.

Kiddo is likely going to be moving in January. The details of this are still being worked/felt out. Until things are a bit more concrete in nature, I won’t be saying alot more than this cryptic couple of lines.

My 68 year old mother  is having dificulties working with Instant Messenger. My 87 year old grandmother who, until last night, didn’t realize she could get online (still doesn’t know what to do online) talked with me on IM’s for nearly an hour last night!  YOU  GO  GRANDMA!!!!!

Well that’s about it for now. I didn’t post daily, or weekly, but it wasn’t as long of a dry spell as before!

All is Well, and so on!

Well it’s Sunday evening. Last friday morning I had my colonoscopy. Everything is fine, there wasn’t even any notable radiation damage, it’s seems all is well. My dad, however, was the one with me and he didn’t ask any additional questions beyond what the doctor volunteered. The “and so on” is the part that if all is as it should be, why do I have the digestive problems that I have?

I am still knitting on my graduated scarf. I promise, I’ll post a pic when it’s done.

Long Time Waiting

I have been away from blogging along time I know. I think I should be more regular about posting. But then I also wonder if anyone realy pays attention or reads my blog! Yes, I am being whiney about it and making excuses about not having posted in such a long time. I am also being honest about how I feel.

I have a huge number of UFO’s knitting-wise. But at the moment I am working on a graduated scarf. (I’ll explain at another time when I post a pic, and no I won’t wait a long time to do it.) I have a sweater that is nearly done, but has had to put on the back burner for a couple of weeks. (See below.) My striped sweater is hiding in a bag in the closet, out of sight out of mind. The old ball diagnal sweater has to have the entire left sleeve ripped out and redone, so yes it also sits over in the closet. There are likely others, but those are the most recent ones.

I had my annual womanly checkup and paps smear and mamogram. The doctor ordered a colonoscopy because of family histery, personal risk factors, and because I am at higher risk because I have had pelvic floor radiation. The colonoscopy is this friday morning 9 am CST USA. I need an easy knitting pattern, that isn’t boring, but also isn’t too complicated. I have chose to do a graduated scarf in the Subtle Ribbing Pattern. Anyway, please keep me (if anyone realy reads this) in your thoaghts and prayers.
