Quick update

Yes I know, it's been a while since I posted anything. Sophie's blanket (seed stitch) is taking forever, and I haven't been well recently.

Finally, after months of chronic sinusitis, I'm getting a CT scan on Thursday. Hopefully it'll be nothing too serious, and they'll find the cause of the painful problem. My specialist suspects a blockage, and if so, it will be just day surgery, and I'm back to work the next day. Cross your fingers on Thursday!

Here's part of Sophie's blanket, and the wonderful stitch markers I bought from Charles". He's been selling these as fundraiser for the AIDS LifeCycle, and there are still some available if you're interested.

This weekend is my birthday and here's what I asked hubby for: a visit to an alpaca farm. I just can't wait! It's gonna be so exciting to see these little faces, and be able to pet them (or at least I hope so). I also can't wait to see the yarn that will be available. I can smell stach enhancement in the air!

Cat who thinks she's Penelope

As you know, I have started a blanket for Sophie. When I got home yesterday, I found my cat ChloƩ lounging on the blanket, pulling at the yarn.
I asked her "Are you frogging the blanket?". She answered "meow".
"You know that if I don't finish it, poor little Sophie won't be able to warm up in her blankie, sitting on me." She winked! Maybe she knows exactly what she's doing...

Frog, frog, frog...

That's what I had to do with Sophie's blankie, as I was going to run out of yarn, and doubt I would be able to find more...
