When Mom was having dialysis her shoulders always seemed to be hanging out of her hospital gown, not very attractive. I decided to knit her a shawl. It's been slow going, I've never knitted anything this big. But I've been on a role lately. The other day when I was visiting she asked me to knit her a shawl. How ironic is that? She has no idea I've been working on this thing. I'm finally to the point where I can start the decreases . . . yay! I want it to be done and give it to her and start on some of the things in my queue in Ravelry. I'm chomping at the bit to start the Alaska headband. Hopefully in the next few days.
Last night I was calmly at knit night, just knitting away with the girls, chatting, knitting, eating cookies when who should walk in . . . my daughter! OMG, she surprised the heck out of me! I felt like a contestant on the Price is Right. I was so surprised and stunned, I don't think I've ever been that surprised in my life. She came home a day early from college and totally surprised me. I couldn't quit hugging her, it was so good to see her, and with all the crap I've been through lately, it was the fix I needed.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I'm not having it at my house this year. I'm looking forward to it bittersweetly, it will be at someone else's house, but my mom won't be attending.
I hope everyone who reads my blog has a Happy Thanksgiving!
