I knew I’d been away from the blog but I didn’t realize for how long until just now. Wow! Things have been crazy to day the least. Here is a quick recap of what has kept me away. My father was in the hospital for nearly a week and then transferred to rehab. He did really pretty well there and is now at home. He’s had some setbacks (like having to use a walker) that are likely permanent but overall he seems better. The rehab he went to is located at the nursing home where my uncle (my father’s brother) lives. They were able to spend some time together but unfortunately my uncle had a stoke the first week my father was there. He spent some time in the hospital and then only a few days after returning to the nursing home he had a blood clot in his lung and went back to the hospital. My father came home the day before my uncle returned to the nursing home. The past 24 hours have been the most peaceful in a while.
I did manage to squeeze in some knitting and finished the socks I had been working on. The yarn is Studio June Sock Luck in snowy sky. The pattern is my usually one over 64 stitches. I’m pleased with the way these came out. They were great mindless knitting for when I had a few minutes sitting waiting for the next thing to happen.
I have cast on something new but I think I’ll tell you able that tomorrow.
