unhappy interruption

Saturday, March 4, 2006

My baby knitting has stalled again. This time the interruption comes not in the form of my own health problems, but someone else’s. A dear relative who had surgery for one cancer last year has now been diagnosed with another. She faces eight months of aggressive treatment and a great deal of uncertainty, so those balls of calmer I was hoping not to need have made it out of the stash and onto my needles.

I had a wonderful time last year knitting Shedir from the Knitty Fall 2004 Surprise. I still love this pattern but some how it is harder to have fun with it when I am so heartbroken to need to be knitting it right now.

Shedir Too

Sending healing thoughts to your friend. I hope this hat warms her head and her heart. Much love to you both.

I’m sending healing energy to both you and your friend. May both of you find warmth and healing… and may every stitch you put into it give you both the strength needed to pull through this. *hugs*

I’m so sorry to hear about your relative. Its hard to watch someone you love go through cancer treatment. I am thinking positive thoughts to you both.

I’ve just recently found out that a close friend has breast cancer. It’s been hard to find the right words to say, perhaps a handknitted hat will show her what is inside my heart. Thanks for the inspiration..I will get onto it when I get back from Holidays. Glad to see your feeling better!!
