Yes, it's that time of year again. Time to start planning and getting ready for the chilly and sometimes unpleasant weather ahead.
In preparation, a friend of mine asked if I could make her some red fingerless mitts similar to the pair I made her last year. These turned out so nice and with the extra yard, I decided to go ahead and make a couple more!
I just finished these cozy socks for the friend of mine who had the motorcycle accident. Thought she might enjoy something pretty and colorful to offset that hospital green and sterile white.
I took them to her today and visited with her, her boyfriend, and her family for a bit. She looked like she was having a pretty good day. Some days she's in quite a bit of pain, but is improving everyday.
She will be leaving the hospital on Monday and transferring to an in-patient physical therapy medical center where she will be busy getting stronger. In order to be able to go home, she'll need to be able to walk with a walker and get in/out of a car.
She's been in the hospital for over 7 weeks. Her recovery has been a series of miracles. Really. Everyone is amazed.
I finished this 'lil project tonight in class. I was skeptical that I would be able to work the jewel into the bezel cup [do not ask why....I shall peer with reluctance at the question], but when I got home, it went in nicely. Pha...Ewe!
And.So. Because it doesn't smell like a delicious treat, Oliver wasn't AT ALL interested in his new jewel.
