All that matters at the moment

There is so much more that I could be blogging about at the late on a Sunday night. All the projects completed and those planned. Then there was the great time I had at the Spin Out in Central Park yesterday.. just spending the time with everyone.

But this is the most important project that I have completed in one day. Its not perfect and it might be too big but all that matters is who it is for.

My cousin Robert is very ill, he and our whole family are praying every moment that he can be blessed with a needed liver transplant. So yesterday when visiting him at the hospital, I started knitting on a baby sweater for a friend, and he asked me if I could make him a hat.. something like a ski cap to help keep him warm in the hospital at night.

There wasn't a question of whether I would make the hat, I started scrolling through my yarn stash in my head and thinking of a pattern. I measured his head and told him that I would do anything for him.

So here is a off white cap, like I said it might be too big and I am not thrilled with the edge but all that matters is that it will keep him warm during these hard days and that all my love and prayers are are in every knit and purl.

With all my love and prayers ... for my fearless cousin Robert.

Still alive

Hello all... yes I know that it has been a bit since I blogged last...well I have been busy.

Of course I have some finished projects to share but I am not home. Currently I am in Lakeland..near Tampa in Florida.

So when I get home, and I get rid of this pulled muscle in my neck I got from shaken my big butt a little to hard at the club on Saturday night I will gladly share them all.

The hardest part was walking away from a clearance sale at Walmart of Bernat Softee. Well I walked away with two skeins for some holiday booties...a buck each.

Ciao ciao
