I just discovered

that my first blog post was on Tuesday, Sept 28th. Darn ... forgot to look at what year that was. 2007??
Must try to remember that when Sept comes around again ... have a blogaversary party.

This is a sad and hard post.

As some of you know, before Christmas my Mom had a heart valve replaced, at the QE2 in Halifax. Complications set in from that, and she was put on a ventilator. Two weeks ago she was transfered to Yarmouth, hoping that in a months time or so she would be transfered to Shelburne.

On Thursday she had a turn for the worst. And in the very early start of today she passed away.

I'm sad, I'm going to miss her. I'm most likely going to knit lots ... or none.

Happy New Year

Let's start of the first post of the new year with a picture that our daughter took yesterday morning. Just beyond the horses fence. We saw 2 deer there later in the day. Collective "Awwww" moment :)

Mom is doing a bit better each day. She has been sitting up, and breating on her own a bit. Slow but steady.

I'm still fighting my cold. My friend was home from NB for Christmas ... and this morning I managed to spent 2 hours with her. Barely. Wiped me out for the rest of the day!!

I've crocheted a big granny square afghan. And knit some bookmarks. No pictures because I'm lazy. :)

Does anyone happen to have the book Greetings From the Knit Cafe? I'd love to have the pattern to make this I think it's about 200 sts, with an aran weight yarn, a 11 stitch chevron repeat ... but what I can't find by looking at various pictures online is ... what size needle, and is it single or doubled?
