I tried to make a scarf once. I got bored and stopped when it had reached minimum wrap distance... about 30 inches. If you stretched it.
So I am suitably impressed with your progress, even if you weren't having medication issues. Doubly impressed with the withdrawal.
Yes, I have knit 35" on a project which will not be finished until can knit 54". It's a LONG STORY!!! LMAO! It starts with the first cuff and you knit 4" of 1x1 ribbing for that, then you double your stitches, knit 45" of the lace pattern, then you decrease by half the stitches and knit another 4" in 1x1 ribbing and bind off. When finished you have a "shrug" or "bed jacket" or whatever you want to call it. The pattern is Circa 1936 and is called a Shoulderette! It is turning out really nicely. I am making it as a bed jacket for a friend who is having heart surgery very soon. I NEED to finish this darned project!
Thanks for the support Jess!
Those socks are gorgeous! Great job, fantastic colour!
Sorry I was out of here yesterday before 8 a.m. and not home again until past bedtime, so I did not get on here last night to wish all Mothers a Happy Mother's Day. I went to my daughter's house and spent time with them all. So I will wish all Mother's a Happy Mother's Day today instead.
This week is a kind of sad week for us, as we remember May 12th of last year, when my MIL passed away two days after Mother's Day. Wednesday we will be quiet and remember.....
Here is what we posted elsewhere and now here for her as she was a knitter in her time!
♥ If roses grow in Heaven, Lord, pick a bunch for me, Place them in my Mother's arms & tell her they're from me, Tell her that I love & miss her, & when she turns to smile, Place a kiss upon her cheek & hold her for a while... Because remembering her is easy, I do it every day, There's an ache within my heart that will never go away. Happy Mother's Day in Heaven! ♥
Tomorrow I am going back to the city my daughter lives in, to look at an apartment for us to live in once we get back home where I belong. Who knows if it's going to be good enough, we shall see!
Bye for now!
