It’s been a rough week. Most of this past week has been spent in the hospital with my SIL. She had a “routine surgery” two weeks ago that turned out to be anything but routine and has had two surgeries since then. My husband and I spent the whole week going between work/school and the hospital. I am convinced that the fact that I am a knitter kept me sane and from drinking heavily. I knit through her first surgery and most of her second. I knit while we were waiting for her pain medication to be delivered. I think I actually knit more than I ate over the last few days. Having yarn and needles in my hands kept me from screaming at the hospital staff a few times. (Just to be clear, I grew up with an ER nurse and have nothing but respect for all hospital staff. But when no one checked on my SIL for 12 hours, even after we had gone down to the nursing station to request someone in the room, I started to come a little unhinged). But, I did get a lot of knitting finished.
First, I finished my socks. They are almost a perfect match!
Pattern: Vanilla Lattes
Next, my Wurm hat that looked very unhat-like last week is off the needles.
My Barndom sadly looks exactly the same as last week as it really didn’t make for good hospital knitting.
My Jaywalkers did get a little love, but they still look about the same.
And finally an unscheduled cast on for my Husband happened.
I had planned to finish the Jaywalkers before I started these, but I felt the need to cast these on and I didn’t have the energy to fight with that. So, Lattes for my hubby in Sweet Georgia have been added to the list. (My BIL suggested that I could make them for him if my Husband didn’t like them. No luck there Dude).
So knitting wise it has been a very productive week and we are hoping that with the last surgery that my SIL is finally out of the woods and on the path the recovery. Fingers crossed.
Lattes for me
