A sigh of relief...

It has been a difficult 5 days, but I am pleased to report that my father had open-heart surgery late last week and is almost ready to come home. It looks like we are moving toward a speedy recovery, and as I am the queen of denial, I mention it only because it distracted me from my knitting...so now I will get back to it!

I am still working on Hecate, which is going to be a full-size stole pretending to be a swatch. More to follow. It looks pretty good to me. I am also planning a holiday scarf project chez BadCat, with charts posted on the blog during November. I will get information up about that next week.

First I have to totally enjoy Rhinebeck this coming weekend. I'll take my camera and some cash. Be prepared...I am going to wallow in it.
