My apologizes to those that follow or have commented and I have not responded to your lovely comments. This is my fresh start. After the twists and turns of this past year, I am looking forward to getting back to what brings me joy ...spending time with my family and in my spare time (hahahaha) spinning, quilting, drawing.....
Knitting was one thing that I could do after my surgery. It kept me focused and brought me a lot of comfort. In the fall I posted some pictures of my Skywalker shawl off of the needles and the beginnings of my Clarus shawl (both designed by Laura Nelkin). I have FINALLY blocked them and am so pleased with how they turned out. Tonight, I am casting on a new lace shawl ... another beautiful design by Laura Nelkin and I am knitting up a gauge for a lace shrug. I will hopefully get some photos up for those tomorrow.
|Blocking Clarus Shawl|
Knitting this shawl brought me so much comfort after this surgery. I feel extremely blessed that my cancer was discovered extremely early and that they got it all with the surgery so I don't need any treatment other than thyroid medication and follow up appointments. I know there are so many other families coping with so much more. My thoughts and prayers are with those families. It seemed only appropriate that the shawl that I knit through my own recovery be used to raise funds to help others.
I have donated this Clarus shawl along with a table runner to help my children and their friends raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. Their Relay for Life team (Rabbits for a Cure) is hosting an online auction on Facebook. If you would like to help them with their Fundraising please join the auction. Auction ends May 28th at 9 pm
