For Jill who asked for our unusual tree images: this is the big big cherry tree with vertical bends. I love it.
These are my current yarns working together in a simple shawl. I know I broke my Noro rule, but this yarn is soft! It is Noro the World of Nature, Mirai color 17. A cotton, viscose, poly, silk blend. The purple is A cotton blend from Juniper moons.
I’m in the mood for a single:
no second sock, no second mitten, no garment requiring finishing. I’m in the mood for purely joyful knitting.
Thanks for all the mom prayers. She was delightful last night. Smiling, happy, talking in a pretty understandable way. She ate her whole dinner for me with gusto. It was as joyful a Visit as there can be right now.
A friend whose mom has Alzheimers sent me a video to watch yesterday. I decided after watching it to ask mom, “is it ok if I go home now?” I usually struggle with leaving and her readiness for it.
So, when it was time to go I said, “mom , is it ok if I get going now?”
“Oh sure. ” she said. As we got up to get to the door, she looked at Troy and said,
“Oh Troy , are you leaving alreadY?” She cracks us up sometimes.
