WIP Weds: Sprout – Growing Roots and life gets interesting…

Let the festivities begin! MiL had her pre-op appointment yesterday, today is the eco-cardiagram (cancelled this morning, now on Friday), then a GP appointment on Thursday. Next Tuesday is the operation day, with an overnight stay due to her age. She is not a very happy camper, she thinks far too much fuss for gallbladder removal! She has no daughters, only sons so I’m it! Doing my best to help her through this. She has never had any major health issues, and like most people isn’t dealing very well with body betrayal. Hopeing she will be back to her fiesty self soon!

Meanwhile back at the ranch…

I have been working on “Sprout – Growing roots”  love the buttons and yes I know it was not on my WIP list, but it is made from stash!  I wanted something to knit in waiting rooms.

(week 3 of Yarn Diet)

Sprout – growing roots with Buttons

Some developments in the Garden as well

Shade Master Locust – 15 years old

And the flowers are up

Iris – these started as a spade full from a neighbour, they are about ready to be divided.

Sometimes things just show up

I don’t know where these Columbine came from, but they are lovely!

Book: Finally got my hands on “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” by Steig Larsson. My DH and DS keep pilfering it. Threats have been made, hopefully I’ll get to finish it this time.

    I’m anxious to see how your Sprout comes out. My neck came out too big. I am going to rip it out since I never wear it. I may as well use all that hand spun for another sweater!

    Fingers crossed that everything goes well for your MIL. I’ll be doing the hospital gig myself shortly. I’m already planning what knitting to take for the long waits; socks I think 🙂
