I spent a few hours yesterday with my sister in the infusion room at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Her daughter, probably the nicest 13-year-old in the world, was there too, doing her homework. We went to lunch and then drove home in the snow.
The infusion room is emotionally draining for everyone. For the patients, there is the added fear and physical exhaustion caused by the disease and its treatment. Of course there is hope, too. That's why we were all there, because we hope we can beat cancer in our own various ways, whether nurse, patient, or visitor.
I worked on another chemo cap.
Lisa's and Katie's Berets from Through the Loops;
knitted in Rowan Calmer
The test knit I did is for sale now, so I can show my pictures. The first one is a little cloudy. I think I need to do a photo shoot in better light. When there is some.
Ammonit Stole from Arlene's World of Lace;
Wollmeise Lacegarn in Blue Suzanne
It is done in short rows, and so makes interesting use of variegated yarn.
I don't know why it's so hard to take a picture without a cat in it
