Second verse -- sorta same as the first. Another set of chest pains, a call to 911, EMT's at the house, ambulance trip to St. Joe's, boocoo tests (as in blood, x-ray, dye stress tests), and lots and lots of waiting in between -- all on HT.
I had a flight instructor who explained Flight Instructor Time to me this way: hours and hours of boring flying punctuated by seconds of sheer terror (remember there's a student pilot in the left seat, Pilot In Charge.)
HT feels the same way. Long periods of boredom, bad food, interruptions for vital signs, and then finally a minute or two with someone who can explain test results and next steps.
Meanwhile -- I've grabbed my knitting bag on my way to the hospital. Of course!
Here's what I worked on, all depending on available mental energy, interest level, and access to decent light.
Snug Sockettes -- from Vanessa at Mixed Martial Arts and Crafts. Vaness at Mixed Martial Arts and Crafts. Also on Ravelry if you wanna log in there. I used stash, left-over Harry Potter sock yarn. It's Cascade Heritage washable.
All the pics today were taken on the deck, as we finally have a bit of overcast sun. We call them sun breaks here in PNW, USA. It's a situation full of hope as in "we see enuf sun we can hope for the full dose soon."
Arimono Shawl -- Megan Goodacre from Tricksy Knitter. I'm completely addicted to Megan's designs. Just bot two patterns at her end-of-summer sale. You might still be able to find a kit for Arimono, using Sweatermaker Yarns. I gotta tell ya -- this is some of the most wonderful yarn I've ever worked with. It's silk and cashmere, hand painted. Tricksy Knitter.
Manchester United scarf -- my design and first experiment with Double Knitting. Yarn is Patons Astra, sport weight acrylic. This is very fun. I encourage you to try something in Double Knitting.
We're home now and much improved. We both enjoy being on our own time and away from HT.
Me, I prefer KT.
