A much happier Miss M. The slouchy topped hat was a big success and I'll do more, but in wool. The glasses came from Mad About Science in Victoria as part of a 3D writing kit.
She has been home about ten days and we are all having a bit of a respite. Well, home apart from clinic visits for tests and chemo. However, she has not been an inpatient from side effects of the chemo.
The little suitcase came from a Ravelry friend in England. Beautifully packed, it was full of tissue wrapped small parcels of craft materials. She loved it. I've said it before, but we are continually amazed at the generosity of fellow crafters. Amazed by gifts, offers of help, prayers, good wishes and so much more. It has blown us away.
The yarn is lovely, very soft and easy to knit with. I bought it from Suzy hausfrau. It's Malabrigo silky merino, 51% silk and 49% merino. I'm sure she'll love the colour, she likes purple and blues. The colour is "nocturnal," a good name to me. I sat on the balcony this afternoon and did about ten centimetres. It was pleasantly cool and it has been wonderful to have had some rain.
