I am constantly reading of the kindness and generosity of the worldwide knitting community, knitters are indeed a wonderful bunch of people. I have witnessed this first hand this week, through comments left on my blog and many emails received in regards to my son Haydens operation. Wonderful knitting folk whom I may have never met face to face but you are true friends indeed. So a huge big thank you from the bottom of my heart to you all and just to let you know that Hayden is okay, a sore mouth but he is fine. I mean what 11 year old boy wouldn't be when at the moment his diet consists of custard, jelly and icecream. Oh and soup, thanks to his Uncle Ed who has a bit of a reputation in our family for his awesome soup.
Of course I do have something to show for five hours sitting at the hospital on Tuesday. I managed to knit this much of the front of the 60's cabled jumper, and it proved to be a wise choice as there is just enough happening in the pattern to distract my mind off what was happening, well slightly anyway.
Also another act of generosity from Sue in Melbourne, we are now in the process of doing a swap. She is getting some of my stitch markers in return for a set of Pony dpns. The poor postie will be having to make a quick getaway on his bike as this crazy sock knitting woman will be running out to the letterbox, to check for her parcel of prized knitting needles.
So once again, thank you everyone and happy knitting to you all
