All Wrapped Up

I have stopped all of my other projects to work on a wrap found in the latest issue of debbie bliss knitting magazine.

My pleated wrap is being made with gray Paton Silk Bamboo.

I'm a very slow knitter so it will take me a long time at 71" long.

When The Frog Turns

I have started many small projects because whenever I started a large one it would be frogged for one reason or another.

The gloves are still safe and almost done.

I started another Noro Silk Garden Scarf.

This is a scarf from Knitty.

I will post details when I finish it.

This was to be a top down cardi from Lion Brand. It met the frog way because I just didn't like it in this yarn.

I enjoy working on many projects at a time but I also like to finish them!

I'm Still Here!

No post since March 15th just isn't like me.
Lupus has done me in and knitting has been slow.
When I get down I find others who are having a more difficult time and that stops me from feeling sorry for myself.
I ran into a friend I have not seen for a long time and she was with her beautiful 6 year old daughter who has Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. This sweet angel goes through so much pain she can't walk sometimes. They are going to start her on shots of Methotrexate. I'm on this chemo and I know what it does to me I can't begin to imagine how she will deal with it. We must find cures to these diseases.
My first born and husband are in their first home so I've spent a great deal of time with them.
I hope to post picture of my slow moving unfinished projects this weekend.
