Thank you to everyone

I want to thank everyone who wrote to me. My mother is doing well. She is in rehab having PT and OT every day. Not able to get around without help but she can feed herself and sit in a chair without support.
I will go back up on Monday and stay until Saturday.
My father will be 85 on April 29 and my hubby is 50 April 30.
I've worn my Clapotis and I love it.
It is actually a very small shawl. I already cast on with the left over yarn and will add one more repeat in the increase section so it is a little wider and one more repeat in the middle section so it is longer.
While I will not stop buying Helen's Laces I do feel that the Shimmer is just as soft. We will now see how it looks after a few yarns.

I'm back home

My mother recieved her new hip on April 15. She is doing well considering she is 83, has heart problems, arthritis. She moved to a SNF closer to home today. I came home and am back at work. Her recovery will not be easy, but at least she is given the chance to recover.
Almost finished with my clapotis.

I might be away for awhile

My mother broke her hip yesterday. They will operate today. I will go up tomorrow morning after work and probably stay until Friday.
Have my clopits and Brian's sweater to take with me. So I have lots of knitting to do whenever I get the time.

Another one

Which flock do you follow?

Yea, I know

Oooh, easy does it on the metal food group
You will swallow some tacks. You are a little
weird, maybe not so much in a good way. Buy a
yellow tie and wear it on your head.

I didn't like the drape of the scarf on 5's. Ripped it out and restarted it on 7's. I really like the feel of the scarf now. Will take a picture later on the 7's.

Retro rib pattern. They look very nice. They are for his birthday at the end of the month.

Multidirectional Diagional Scarf

I love the way the stripes turned out with this pattern. I will probably use this pattern to make scarves for Christmas. Now to find the right yarn.

I'm back.

Tuesday the kids and I went to my mothers. Took her to her Dr's appt. Went for lots of walks. Relaxed.
It was storming on our trip up. Then the rain stopped and the sun came out and got warmer each day.
I knit on Brian's sweater on the way up and back.
My yarn from Knit Picks arrived just before I left. So I was able to finish the Irish Hiking wrist warmers. They are very soft.
I also recieved my Shimmer yarn. Started the Clapotis on size 5 needles. Have about 80 stitches. I can't decide if I like it or not. I'll let it lie for a while and then decide if I want to rip it out or not.
Trip home today was uneventful. Just the way I like it.
