It never rains

But it pours.
Michael is back in hospital, complications resulting in surgery later today.
I fell into bed quite early but have now been awake for a couple of hours.
Herbie is most put out and has been searching the house, he doesn't like it when one of us is missing.
I threw the towel in and brought him down, there was to be no rest whilst he pitter patted up and down.
I have been indulging in some retail therapy, not for me. I found the  undyed suri alpaca silk and 4 skeins of that are headed in my direction. I was intending to dye 4 skeins of fingering weight yarn but found an Etsy shop having a sale, there was a colourway that was perfect for Francesca so she will have a Paloma for either birthday or Christmas.

I blanched at the total cost and dived headfirst into my stash, I found some long hoarded cream wool and have cast on a Penny sweater from Tin Can Knits, it's a paid for pattern, knitted bottom up in the round and joined at the arm holes. It has a V neck but I may well change that into a crewe or even a roll neck. It has become a tradition that she has 2 garments, at least 1 hat and a few pairs of socks shared between Birthday in November and Christmas. 

Herbie has settled down and is snoring so I will see if it is possible to get back to bed myself. I hope that he settles down, I like my sleep, not a massive amount but unbroken.

We have had glorious hot sunny days with cool and rainy nights, good for the garden, not so much for those looking to make hay.

Stay safe.

  1. Hoping things pan out well and that Michael recovers speedily.

  2. Sorry to hear about Michael being back in hospital and hope all goes well with his surgery. Take care. Catriona

  3. Warmest wishes for Michael and his surgery. Take care of you too xx

  4. I hope Michael operation goes well and he is home soon, my hubby has had 2 spells in hospital in the last few years and home is big and empty without them. I am trying not to look on line at yarn, my resistance is always low.

  5. What a worry. I hope that Michael's operation goes as planned and is soon back from hospital.

    At least your knitting and crafts will take your mind off worrying and some lovely things will be made from your stash and the little bit of retail therapy!

  6. Fingers crossed for a good outcome and speedy recovery .
    Hope you enjoy your new cast on.

  7. Sorry to read about Michael, hope all goes well with the surgery. Take care.

  8. I hope Michael's surgery is uneventful and he will be home soon. Get some rest while you can and take care.

  9. I hope that Michael is okay and that the complications are not too bad.

    Poor Herbie, I know how much our fur babies miss someone when they aren't around.

    God bless.
