Latest Hand Knits December 19, 2013

I have been sitting in a lot of medical waiting rooms lately, so I have not been at the knitting machine.  However, while my brother is going through what seems like endless medical tests, I have been hand knitting.  Here are some pictures of them before I take them up to The Artist’s Studio at the Palos Verdes Art Center.  This time I made an effort to get pictures before they sold and I never see them again.  First is the Turquoise Wig Hat, then the Slouchy Hat, then a nice long cowl/scarf.

Oh, I crave/covet the cowl scarf! Is it a pattern? Will it be a pattern? What yarn did you use. Is it self striping or….

I hope your brother is recovering from whatever has caused him to spend too much time in the land of medicine!

Happy, Happy, Merry, Merry! AND thank you as always, for your inspiring blogs. Mary

Hi Mary. As fate would have it, my brother has been diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis and has been battling it for quite awhile, but now that he is on oxygen and has only 50% lung capacity (and getting worse), he is going through several levels of testing to be put onto the lung transplant list at UCLA Medical Center here in Westwood. They have the most success of any other facility in regards to lung transplants, like 85%. Anyhow, the transplant panel meets today and we will know soon if all the experts agree that he is approved to be put on the long list of lung recipients. If approved, then we wait until a lung becomes available that is a match, could be tomorrow or up to three years! And the operation is no snap either, about 6 long and hard hours just for his one lung transplant. We are all praying for the best outcome.

But let’s get back to some more upbeat knitting info. The pictured scarf pattern is not mine. It is the Gallatin Scarf from Kris Basta and it’s free. Just Google “Gallatin” scarf, and you will get to it. I used the Bernat Mosaic yarn that has long spans between color changes and gives you a great look. I think they call this colorway “Medusa”, not the greatest name I think, but it kinda looks like a sunset when knitted. REally nice.

And a Merry Christmas to you too, sweetie and keep sending those positive vibes!!
