AUTHOR: Knitti-me TITLE: It Hurts When I Laugh... DATE: 11:37:00 PM ----- BODY:
I'm back! First of all, I want to give my most sincere thanks to all who left well wishes and kept me in their thoughts and prayers; they were most appreciated. Well, not only did I survive the surgery, I survived the hospital stay as well. Now comes the long road to recovery. Right now I'm at the "beached whale" stage. It's quite the production, with husband's help, to get in and out of bed. It could be quite comical, but don't start me laughing - it hurts. So on to fibery news. Stash Enhancement! A few weeks ago, Graeme and I wandered around the Dixon Lamb Festival. It had been a couple of years since I had attended this show and was shocked to see the number of vendors and foot traffic decreased significantly. So to say the least I was disappointed in the fibery offerings. I did, however, find this cool yarn spun from banana fronds! The texture is kind of like silk and color is very rich. I also acquired some wonderful homespun from Houndscroft Farm. There's enough for a nice hat/scarf set or a child's sweater. From the Ally Archives! Look who took up residence in my knitting basket. Knitting on Klaralund is finished. Now on to finishing. That's her lying beside Ally in the basket.
