My friend and former nurse co worker Anne, crocheted these thrummed mittens. My goodness they are warm. I’ve seen knitted mitts but never crocheted!! She said the roving was a bit fiddly but she succeeded. She also crocheted her pups coat. I love the cabled look of her work. She’s a very creative person.
Talking about our nursing careers at lunch and reading a friends book, Sweet Reprieve , has me thinking about when I was a nurse. Sweet Reprieve is a friends father’s story . Her father was an early liver transplant recipient. Frank Maier was a reporter by trade, and his writing is wonderful. I had no intention of reading a book this week, but I couldnt put it down. I don’t miss the stress, but I’m glad I have the memories and still have dear nurse pals. It is a great book and I’m told you can get it on Amazon for a dollar. It made me think of Al of course and her work with organ donation. So it was a great unexpected read.
