Knitting Therapy

Well, I’m back in Kentucky with the family, but unfortunately, it was for an emergency.  My father was diagnosed with a rare blood disease which has turned rather serious.  I won’t go into details, but it was bad enough to call the family in.  He has made some progress, a lot some days, other days we feel he is going backward.  But we are in a great hospital in Lexington, Kentucky.  Terry and Kay are here taking turns with Dad at night and Mom and I have the day shift.  I don’t have a FaceBook account, but Mom and Terry have read many, many concerns, well wishes and prayers for him and our family on their FaceBook page.

So, I brought knitting…..It’s Stony Point Cowl from Raverly patterns.imageNext my sister, Kay gave me a book on felting.imageAnd my niece, Kaylee,sent me a quilting mystery.image(I’m also learning how to post this using an IPad.  Not easy!)

So, hope and prayers will see us through this.

See ya,

  1. Prayers indeed. I’m glad you can be there. Knitting keeps you calm and ready mentally to face the many decisions of the day.

    Isn’t it wonderful that we have something that can get us through these terrible times. I am doing the bedside thing with Daddio this week who’s also been having a tough time of it and I forgot my knitting yesterday. It was a long day without it. Best wishes.

    Here’s hoping your Dad is feeling much better by the time you are reading this email. I will keep your family in my prayers. Gail
