And once again..........

a long time has passed since I have been on here. I am not sure if you guys knew, but I had a major 10 hour head surgery at the end of September. After some hearing problems, and several tests, my Doctor discovered I had a large Tumor in my Head. Surgery was rough, and so was Recovery, but I am on my way back to normal. My Face is still paralyzed on the left side, and looks crooked , and my speech is still suffering, but this is supposed to get better as time goes on. My biggest fear was cancer, and I am happy to say, that this Tumor was NOT Cancer..............
So after a break ,I am back to knitting and crocheting. I am still crocheting Chemo Angels, but I decided to deliver them to our Local Hospital instead of sending them to another State, unfortunately we have lots of Cancer Suffering Patients right here in Town ! At the Moment I am a One Man Production Company, but hope to find some crocheting help in the Future. The Number of Angels I crochet, is not enough in order to give each new Cancer Patient a thoughtful gift :0(
I also knitted my brother a pair of socks for Christmas. I decided to make my Dad a pair as well, just in a different shade.
I also made a scarf/ shawl as a Thank you for my Great-cousin in Illinois . She was so helpful during the time I was sick. It is a Test Knit, and was made out of a Wollmeise Yarn, which is now my all time favorite yarn :0)

Almost a month later....

Unbelievable how fast the time flies ! It has been almost a month since my last Post. A lot has happened during that time.......

As all of you know, I have been a Ravelry Member, and just found another very nice Group called " Annie's Gifts for Chemo " ! I think it is a wonderful Idea to present Chemo Patients with a small Gift on a very difficult time in their life's.......
So here are my first two Gifts I am going to Donate !

A Scarf made from hand dyed Merino

I recently fell in love with hand dyeing :0) Oh how much fun it is ! I dyed this extra fine merino wool with KoolAid. The blue was dyed with Easter Egg Color. Then I crochet this fun scarf from it, and still have leftovers to do some felting :0)

Hello Friends..........

I know......... it has been a long time since I have posted. There are just not enough hours in a day to get everything done :0( Believe it or not I am knitting for the upcoming Christmas Open House ! I know!!! Christmas..... that just doesn't sound right , but we are half way through the year, and it will be here before we know it. I am making Fingerless Gloves by the dozen :0) I re-wrote one of my favorite pattern " Mitt Envy". "My" Version is much easier and faster, and is published in Ravelry " Fingerless Fun Mittens ". If you are not a Ravelry Member, feel free to email me, and I will send you the pdf file :0)
