Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


Hello, Dear Bess. I'll be keeping you both in my prayers as you go forth for surgery. How lovely to be so companionable in the car with your Sweetie -- knitting, driving, whatever. Enjoy, and travelling mercies.


P.S. Who knew sheep could be so cute?!

I have read the Monica Ferris books and found them to be entertaining and enjoyable for when you want light reading. I enjoy her frequent references to whatever needlework she is concentrating on at the time, and like that she had trouble learning some of them. Linda

PS I hope things go smoothly in the OR.

Not the best way to get some guiltfree knitting time, but so good that you have a productive way to pass the time while you wait. All the best to BD for a successful outcome.

More surgery. That was the doctor’s news yesterday. Less invasive, less pain, quicker recovery, but stil,l more surgery. So off to the hospital we shall go on Friday. Thank goodness this is a weekend I am not needed at the parents’ since outpatient surgery means you have to be back at the dr’s office at crack o dawn the next morning so he can see how healing is occurring. Whew. But good news really. This could be 1907 and BD would just have gone blind.

Besides, we always enjoy getting in a car and talking to each other. Haven’t run out of things to say yet and we don’t seem to mind repeating ourselves either, when we’re saying kind or loving words. I could wish that I didn’t have to do the driving, but this route is sweet, especially if we remember to leave in time to drive in a poky way instead of edging the speed limit. I’ve knit the heel flap of the second Christmas sock and will turn it this a.m. before I leave for work. Then, on Friday while I wait, I can knit that foot - maybe even challenge myself to get to the toe by the time BD’s out of recovery.

The only serious things on the agenda this weekend are to clean the house and read Harry Potter. Knitting takes second place , or even third, since I have to get the library copy into circulation as fast as possible. I do not want to own a copy but the rest of my staff who want to have ordered theirs so I expect everyone to have her nose buried in the book all weekend long.

And now - a personal note to Marg.


I am so glad you are posting again. What a treat to see the sheepie photo and hear about misty blue and green Scottish heaths.
