WIP Wed: The Siren call of the sewing room and Surgery


Yes I am trying to ignore the siren call of the sewing room. After the great success of The Dress, I have a Jacket pattern and another dress pattern with fabric and notions, quietly whispering to me from the sewing room.

Thinking McCalls "D the white one",  New Look "A" the white one, and Butterick "B" the striped one. We'll see...

Meanwhile Willow has been put on a die-et. She is not very happy about it. She sits and stares at me, looking sad and flabby.

7) Sea of Dreams Blanket

Ok nothing done on this.

The morning started with my DS going to the fracture Clinic for a follow up, At most 2 hours. 14 hrs later, after surgery to tie the 4 pcs of bone back together, a titanium clavicle the whole day was gone. He was a real trooper. I left my knitting at home, but thank goodness for Kobo ereaders.  He is home tucked up in bed, probably very uncomfortable for about a week. So this project will have to wait till next week.

    Wow, you have a lot of blankets on the go! My cat could probably use a diet too – she looks pretty chunky to me – but the vet says she’s fine and she’s within a quarter pound of the weight she’s been the last several years. Instead we’re trying to encourage her to be more active with laser pointers and toys 🙂 Hopefully your son’s clavicle knits back together quickly!
