I'm Still Here!

A week and a half ago I sat down at the computer to draft an end of summer/start to September post. I had a  little stack of knits all done at the cottage over the summer, awaiting their debut about which I planned to write, a big cream coloured poodle curled up at my feet. Everything was good.

Then the phone rang. It was my mother's doctor. She was in the office with him, he wanted me to pick her up and take her straight to the hospital to be admitted for tests. She would have none of it.  By the time I got there, 15 or 20 minutes later, she had left under her own steam and gone into the mall to buy some lunch. I only found her back at her condo, watching TV, munching her egg salad sandwich and no less adamant she was NOT going to spend the weekend at the hospital.


Fast forward to last Monday, I took her in first thing and she has been there ever since. She is doing very well, receiving excellent care and will hopefully be home sometime in the next few days.

Meanwhile when I haven't been at the hospital with her I've been working on her place to get it cleaned, her fall clothes out and ready and things generally thinned out to make it easier for her to navigate around the place on her own.

The hospital is of course a pretty good place to get knitting done and I did complete a set of Fallberry Mitts by Anne Hansen over the last few days.  I'll have to add them to the pile though - I want to post the FO's in order of completion!

So that's what's up with me. I'm still here, still knitting and eager to get back to blogging about it! I hope everyone had as great a summer as I did!

Thanks for dropping by!
