hospital knitting...


i've been spending most of the past 6 days and or nights in the hospital as the family, not the patient, and have been using my swc as therpay, which is what it is because if it becomes a sweater it will be surprising. you know start to knit a row drop the knitting to talk to a nurse or dr pick it up to find stitches off the needles, or to find you have started the row backwards (it's a new trick i've perfected!) so i knit i rip i knit i rip and somehow i've made it this far...and the guy has survived an extremely complicated and lenthy surgery by one of pittsburgh's finest thoracic surgeons and is hoping to come home in a day or two. in the meantime he is recovering nicely from his esophagectomy and i will be home for a few weeks to see that he continues to do so. keep up the excellent work all you sexy knitters and keep my guy in your prayers please!

My family will hold you and yours in our thoughts and prayers. Your SC is coming along nicely, it seems the top, back and forth bit before you join to knit the body goes on forever! I really like the color as well... What yarn are you using?
