FO Friday: Coffee anyone? I know I need some!

Friday has rolled around again, and I haven’t finished much. Yesterday was spent in a waiting room at the Hospital. What a day – 4 hours! Procedure went fine. MiL took a spill arriving home. Ok finally got her home and comfortable, settled for a rest. Went home had shower and nap, woke to go back to the hospital again – Pancreatitis, complication from gasto thing to remove gallstone, another 8 hours in the hospital… She is one sick little cookie, she is looking rather small and sad. Have to say Canadian Medicine rocks, the nurses and Doctors could not he kinder and more active in trying to fix her up! She is in for the night, wonder what today will bring. Getting a little tired.

Did finish a new Coffee Cup Sweater so my coffee cup is going to stay warm in this really cold winter weather. See link to new free pattern!

Safety Line marker, It’s a good thing!

While making socks with after thought heels, I decided that using waste yarn didn’t work for me so this experiment was born. I have used these threaded throught as safety lines several times, they went in easily, stayed in place and where easily removed. They are reuseable, a great little tool. Going to make long ones for shawl knitting safety lines. See link to free instructions on above.

Safety Line in use as a waste yarn for after thought heels.

This weeks book is Oceans of Fire by Christine Feehan #3 in the Drake Sisters series. Abbey is the sister that has the gift of truth, this isolates her from others as she must be very careful not to use her talent accidentally. Her affinity for the ocean draws her into deep waters.

    Ugh, I hate hospitals! Glad to hear it all went well. The coffee sweater is lovely. I think I need one of those in a dark coffee colour to sop up the spills when I slosh my coffee around 🙂

    Yikes, I hope your MiL is better and at home again soon. ❤

    And I love the coffee sweater, the pattern and colours are really jewel-y and beautiful!
