Marie! The Baguettes! Hurry Up!

A Handknit in Action
It is a busy Friday around here but I wanted to show ya'll this picture:

That's Courtney's baby D in his one and only sweater. Isn't he cute??

Today I have a pre-op appointment. Next Friday I am having more surgery on my ankle. I've delayed telling ya'll cause I have been trying to pretend in my mind it isn't happening. It hasn't worked. (I am working on abiding by Today's Quote.)

Chris sent me this picture this morning showing the Abundance that she customed dyed for me for the Briar Rose KAL. (I chose the skein on the left.) So pretty! I have something in mind to knit for myself from this yarn. Any thoughts?

Have a wonderful Friday!

Kristy hun, all the best with your surgery. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers.

Good luck with the appointment and the surgery! That's a good quote - especially for right now. :0)

Beautiful yarn!

Kristy! You and Chris are going to get me into DEEP trouble. I love your yarn - the colors are so very perfect and will match your lipstick! Definitely knit something for yourself - still thinking shawl?

Kniterella said...

Oh, cute baby too

Hey, Kristy- Happy New Year! I haven't been by in so long- you have a lot going on. The hand dyed is stunning- I'm thinking maybe a shrug or a cowl scarf.
Well, I know you're not looking forward to the surgery, but it's time to fix it & start healing.
The scarf is so awesome- I want that pattern!

That sweater and baby are adorable.

Here's to hoping next Friday brings the much-needed remedy for your ankle troubles. I'll be sending lots of good thoughts your way.

Oh my that baby is cute! The sweater looks awesome on him! (may have to knit one just cause its so cute)
So, more surgery huh? I really really hope this works out and that you don't have pain anymore. Such a bummer, but think of all the knitting you can do! Yippie!
