My mom's results were fantastic!! She doesn't have cancer in her lymph nodes and will need some radiation treatment and maybe medication for the next 5 years, Thank GOD. I AM SO RELIEVED. I want to thank you all for keeping us in your prayer and good karma thoughts.

I took knitting with me to the hospital and my mom's while she recuperated, I finished my Marinella Shawl it was a really easy knit with only a stitch legend mishap. The author of the shawl pattern wrote ssk and meant s1,k1 psso for the lace portion. I started the skk and found out on the fifth repeat it was wrong, I didn't rip it out just couldn't bring myself to do so and just continued knitting I used Knitpicks 100% Alpaca lace in Dill, love the results and know I will use this lightweight shawl often.

I took this pic outside this morning funny how the color changes outdoors
and yet another color change and close up of the lace sections.

I'm planning on rewriting the pattern for a wrap, I have some wonderful 100% Cashmere that I used for my Wisp last year, which I snagged an broke. I unravelled it with much heartbreak and will use it for the wrap.

Hooray for that good Mom news! And the shawl is beautiful, in all of it's many changing colors!


Actually in sunlight it's the bottom color, but I like the mystery in the different lighting.

The shawl is beautiful but most importantly I wanted to say Praise God that the cancer hadn't spread to the lymph nodes. What a scary time for all.
Keeping you and her in my prayers.
