First Love is still in hospital.
Pains in his chest/lungs now, so they are doing more x-rays and more radiotherapy. At this rate he will be having his chemo in the hospital on Friday, instead of at home... and actually that is a really good thing after last weekend's debacle.
So I have been home alone (with dog and cat). Last night I finished sewing a cream linen kaftan-ish number from a Japanese pattern. Pictures will follow! I also took the dog out to the trampoline, had a sneaky unsupervised bounce, and then lay down and watched the clouds for a while - bliss!
And I visited the Yarn Yard sale (oops!) and snapped up a skein of sock yarn for a bargain price - woo hoo! This is entirely Hanne's fault again - tsk! (Thank you!)
And I have lost count of the number of times I have almost treated myself to a pre-order of Annie Modesitt's new book Romantic Hand Knits (hyperlink function missing on Blogger - but it's at Amazon). Lovely long lacey stockings and long gloves and handwarmers and a corset top and a wrap cardigan and a bum-hugging skirt - oh yeah, honey, this is a book of sexy knitting patterns!
