I'm back enjoying my knitting, although the warmer weather is creating havoc at times. Since finishing my HRB I have knitted this.............
a halter top for one of my granddaughters, knitted in Lily Sugar 'n' Creme.
I have a book on Folk Socks, sent by my lovely SP10 Pal and she also sent me the yarn and needles to knit one of the socks. In Favourite socks I have found another pair, so now I want to knit both of these;
I think both will look best in white or cream.
Some time ago, Gina sent me 3 skeins of Knit Picks Bare 4 ply yarn, too loosely woven for socks but perfect for this
a half circle shawl I found in my new lace book. It's knitting up really nicely, and will be a lovely light shawl, but will give some warmth on a cooler night.
All is going well with my Dad. He is at a rehab facility now, but so far doesn't seem to be getting much in the way of therapy. He is improving though and is now permitted to walk around the ward assisted only by his walking frame. He's still not permitted to go into the shower on his own, and still needs thickened fluids and pureed foods, but hopefully that will change soon.
I loaned Dad my lap top so that he could excercise his brain by playing some games, and it has certainly been good for him. The other day though, a very careless member of the cleaning staff knocked it off the table and onto the floor. All she said was "ooops". Yeah, oops is right, the bloody thing is broken. It turns on, and will run on the battery, but when you put the power cord in, the bracket is obviously bent and the computer doesn't recognise that it on mains power, so I am unable to recharge the battery. I have informed the hospital that I expect them to pay for repairs to the computer as it was the negligence of one of their staff that has caused the problem. We'll see what happens.
Take care folks, and happy knitting.
