Hi Friends, just a brief update to let you know what's been happening. 3 things:
Firstly, and most excitingly, my brother's jumper made the Ravelry blog! That's right, I'm in Community Eye Candy for December 31st. You can view the Ravelry blog if you're a member, it's just www.ravelry.com. Since then I've received almost 40 comments and almost 200 favourites! Many of those comments were asking me to release the pattern, so that is something I will be working on in the next few days. I am totally thrilled and flattered. I am currently trying to think of how to present the work, and whether I should charge money for it!
In other news, I have been in hospital with appendicitis! The surgery had a few complications due to my appendix being weird, so it was open surgery instead of keyhole, and they took more guts than intended. This means that I will be recovering for quite a few more weeks. I was in hospital for 5 days (over New Year) and am now home, but still feel pretty awful. It was a huge ordeal and I don't want to go into it on my blog. Luckily I can knit now that I don't have IV drips in both arms.
Finally, I've been working on a scarf of my own design and I think it's good enough to publish - simple but effective, and double sided! Hopefully I can get to that soon too.
Hope you are all doing better than me! But good things are ahead :-)
