A Huge Thank You!

Hi Knitters, I thought it was time to check in with you all after what seems like a long few months away that have been filled with surgery, tests, results and a lot of quiet time spent healing.

I have been SO lucky to have such wonderful friends and family to help me along the way.  There have been so many cards, messages, flowers, phone calls, visits, long talks, hugs, wonderful food, gifts and support during appointments that I wanted to say thank you to you all.  I could not have gotten this far on my own.

Since being a Knitter and have lots of knitting friends, many gifts have been knitting related.  I thought you might want to see some of these thoughtful gifts that made me smile (and cry) realizing what great friends I have.

Lots of thoughtful knitting gifts

This is an Elizabeth Zimmermann pi shawl - Hearts knit by Amanda.  It is silk and it is beautiful!!
The yarn on the left is hand spun and hand dyed.  I have the perfect project lined up for it! Sock yarn in my colours.  These socks will be an after Christmas project for me.

These are all great books/magazines.  I've started a pattern from the magazine and I've picked out a few mosaic patterns to knit after Christmas. The novel is really good.  Will be reading more from this author.

More lovely flowers from one of my knitting groups.  The candle smells wonderful and doesn't the mug totally look like Wildflower Wool!

Having awesome friends usually says something about the person who has them!
