Quiltlady, I love that cable too. I looked for it on Ravelry to favorite it, but you haven't posted it yet.

Had to put my project on hold. DH had emergency surgery Thursday night, and it was touch and go for a while. He's doing well now and has been moved from ICU. It's really scary when the surgeon tells you to tell your family members goodby, as there is a very good chance that there will be nothing he can do for you!! We're all delighted he was wrong. Anyway my sweater is on hold for now, until I know how much care he needs at home.

What an awful time for you and the family. You feel so helpless,don't you. I am so glad he is doing well now and will be thinking of you all. As for the Marla, I will still be plodding on in a months time! You never know, he might like you to sit and knit by him while he rests.....

My thoughts are with you and your family for a speedy recovery. Knitting can be a calming presence in times like these.

Oh I'm glad he is doing well now. The knitting can wait until you are ready.

Yes, I need to learn again how to post pictures to flicker. I have SO many things I want to post. I will try and get my dh to help me with it on the weekend.
In fact, I have my sweater on right now. IT is very loose on me but I'm wearing it today.
I am considering ripping it out and reknitting. I bought this yarn for another sweater long ago and I paid $90.00 for the 9 skeins of it. I didn't use that many for the sweater but I can still reknit it. So I am seriously thinking of rewinding the yarn or else knitting right from it for the next sweater.

He's continuing to improve just a little each day, but no mention yet of him coming home. His innards are just starting to go back to work a little, and I think that he haas to be off the NG tube and able to eat something before he is released. We're all just grateful that he is doing so well. Thanks for asking.

Thats very good to hear, I hope the recovery stays nice and steady.

I have been plodding on with Marla, both sleeves done, and I am doing the back and front together on circs, and have done 1 pattern repeat of that. I really wanted to finish a patt repeat and stayed up to 1.00 this morning to do it, I was not happy when the alarm went off at 6.30am, but here I am at work!
