WIP and FO

This is the front of my Rowan Poncho completed. Not a great picture. The yarn is much more lilacy in real life. I imagine the fact that I took the picture in The Red Room comes into play. Next time I get a picture it will be in the grand outdoors.


I finished the pillow for the sew?i knit! sew along this month. A pillow for The Red Room. I used the curtain fabric, left over dress fabric and silk from a no longer worn shirt. Again because the wall were red the colours have come out much redder than they really are. The silk plaid has some goldy beige in it that doesn't show up.

The distance view.....cropped in to hide the piles of clothes that have once again appeared all over the room... (Pause....Breathe...remind myself what I was like as a teenager....remind myself that I do not set the best example of organization...Breathe..)


Some of you may have been wondering about my biopsy results. I have no conclusive answer as of yet. I pretty sure all is ok but the radiologist didn't aspirate enough from the cyst to run a conclusive test. He punctured the cyst once and got a small sample and then could not find the cyst again. He said that sometimes a needle can burst the cyst if that is all it is. Well, fine and dandy. BUT...the report sent to the surgeon just said that the sample was too small for a result. No mention of the lost cyst! Thankfully I am a person who asks questions and supplies information! The surgeon (not having all the info) decided that the best thing to do would be to open me up and get the thing out for biopsy. I supplied him with the information about the lost cyst and thankfully he agreed with me that there should be another ultrasound first before anything else is done. So back to square one. Sigh. I'll fill you in when I have a result.

I am getting excited about the Knitter's Fair in Kitchener this weekend! The funny thing is that it is also the weekend of the Frog-a-Long started by KT over at Why Not?. I am obviously going to have to take some frogging with me to do while walking around the fair and in the hotel room and in the car and maybe in a bar. I'll get Keary to take pictures, don't worry. I'll be posting pics of the projects to be frogged this week! Join us won't you?

What an awesome pillow - and I really love the fact that it's made out of recycled fabrics. Genius!! Keep us posted on all the stuff with the docs - I'll be sending good thoughts your way.

The poncho is progressing nicely... it's a pretty color. The recycled material pillow turned out great. I'm glad you were proactive with the surgeon, why get a biopsy if there is nothing there?

Keep us posted about the doctor.

Your poncho is coming along great. Looking forward to see it completed.

Pillow is more than gorgeous! Do you plan sewing matching bed cover?
Great to hear you are so patient waiting for results!

hey good poncho. I love ponchos, but I get them caught in all sort of things/handles/door knobs/drawers/children...

Charity said...

The poncho is great! I like the pillow, too :0)

Glad to hear an update on the biopsy, one of those things you wonder about, but don't want to ask...

Ooooh, a Knitter's Fair, I'm so jealous! :0)
