An update

Mom had her lumpectomy today and the results were very good. The surgeon removed one lymphnode that had the cancer in it, and they didnt see cancer in any others!! She is on her way home to recover.

Thanks to all, we are out of the dangerous woods but still have some fighting to go.


( ps. new Dirty Jobs is on tonight)

I was spinning last Thursday night and Snoopy decided he wanted to help out by nipping and rolling all over the roving. As soon as he was still, I made a turban with it around his wee head.

Its no wonder he nips at it with all I put him through.
Have a good Monday all!

Look what I can do mom!

the folks bought me half of a spinning wheel for Christmas!! It arrived the 3rd of January at the shop and I was able to pick it up this past Friday. It is a beautiful Majacraft Little Gem, and I love her so.

So I spun this up this evening. I need to spin up another bobbin later this week so I can get help plying this yarn.

I need a name for her ( the wheel not the yarn) ... or it could be a him who knows, any suggestions?

Hope to see everyone who spins this Sat, for Spinning Saturday at KnitWitz.

F*** Cancer

That's right. F*** It. My mom was diagnosed with Breast Cancer last week. She had an appointment with a surgeon today and had more tests run. She will be having a lumpectomy on Jan 22 and will begin chemo as soon as she is healed from that.

So what I ask from you are three things.

1. If you pray, please do so for her, or send some good mojo her way
2. To join me in October for the Breast Cancer walk.
3. I need a few Chemo caps. in anything but yellow. ( not a good color for her)

Thanks peeps. See you soon.

This is not a good week.

On another note. DO any of you Ravelers out here think it is kinda cocky ( in a not good way) to be in a group that is based on your first name?

Whats next a group for people who fart and burp?

Get over it.
