Hello wonderful friends, followers and faces from the winternet. I have a cold again. I thought it was going, but then I got rained on.
I went to my friend's mum's 'last chemotherapy session' party last night. It was such a lovely atmosphere since the last 20 months have been so terrible for everyone involved in the diagnosis and successful treatment of her breast cancer. I remember this time last year, my friend and her sister were shaving their mum's gorgeous hair off, and I was threatening to do the same to raise money for Breast Cancer Care...
My friend was 10 weeks pregnant yesterday- is it too soon to start crocheting baba clothes? She's the mama of a kiwi fruit sized baba!
Also, back on topic, I've been handed two commissions- a manly collarette and a scarlet or turquoise lady's beret, both for people at work. Isn't that brilliant!?
I'm also waiting on a delivery of some recycled sari silk yarn to make my friend at work a lovely winter scarf for her birthday at the end of October.
I am a happy Lini for the time being... despite the lurgy!
Later note- have started the manly collarette in double strands of Zena; one green/cream and the other sepia/cream and it is FLUFFY! Can't remember actual shade #s right now, will update when I'm not in bed at ten to midnight, and 6 1/2 hours of sleep seems an amazing prize. How much sleep will I win tonight? Place your bets...
