Cascading Leaves in Spring?


Yep! I finished the first sock and I have just finished the ruffle on the second... I like the ruffle, its girlie I know but it adds a little something to it, don't you think? The varigation hides the lace pattern a little..But I don't mind :) I had to stop short on my toe B/c the sock was getting too long! Well, ends up the sock is a little big for me so I will wrap up both when finished for a Mothers Day gift for Mom :)






Health Update
Chris and I went to see the Liver specialist (Hematologist)and he didn't seem to concerned about those lesions on his liver...Good News? yes in a way..But Chris's evelvated liver blood tests are a concern and he asked Chris a series of questions to try to pinpoint the cause...No red flags came up.. Chris shows no symptoms of any type of liver ailments! At all! So Chris goes in for a CT scan on Tuesday morning and they took blood again to rule out, Hepititas A,B,C ..Diabetes, And Autoimmune Diseases... If all the tests come back normal and the blood liver is still elevated then they will have to biopsy... Lets hope it doesn't come to that ;) Thanks for putting us in your thoughts and prayers, we're not out of the woods yet...but close i hope!



Projects and more
I hope to be starting some sort of Tank top soon.. I really can't decide what it should be? I don't mind purchasinga pattern....Can you suggest anything... I have sport weight yarn and Worsted wieght as well! a summer cardi would be nice too.. so feel free to suggest those too ;)

I am going to try to make the day lily socks for my MIL for Mothers day, depends if I end up having time left! I have the perfect DK yarn that my needle Exchange pal so generously sent to me!

I will eventually work on socks for myself. I have my yarntopia sock yarn and was one of the first to join the Posse! We in the posse have all summer to come up with out create sock patterns and then were them to an end of summer party at yarntopia! Doesn't that sound fun :) Alot of out of state people have been joining even though they can't come to the party.. Look here for more info!

I bought this pattern and plan to make these for myself some day soon too.....I was going to use Koigu, (p122) just like the picture but then I saw Heather's new batch of freshly dyed superwash and and I now know I need to make it in one of those :) I do want to actually use Koigu! really I do!!! I ave 2 skeins waiting for me in the stash, but I crave more Koigu...Yarn is a sickness ;)

Take care, and I swear I am getting to my Bloglines slowly but surely :)

i've got my fingers crossed!! i hope they get to the bottom of those elevated levels soon.

as for tank patterns... is soleil too easy? a nice lace pattern at the bottom, stockinette with some shaping in the body, and a wider shoulder strap than most tanks out there. on knitty.

Love the sock color! One of my favorites.

Hope Chris is getting better and they figure out the cause.

I hope they can figure out what is up with Chris. The not knowing is is worrisome.

The forest Fleece Artist turned out beautiful. We should be getting the Yartopia sock yarn any day now. I can't wait to get started on the Posse!

Your sock is very pretty, I love the feminine, ruffly edge.

For the tank..I'm a big fan of the chickami top it's very simple and adjustable.

I'll keep sending positive thoughts to you and Chris. Happy Monday!
