Wedding Shower


I finished the cover kimono from Knit Kimono in time to wear to my future dil's shower tomorrow. I'm not happy with my photos, but I'll try again. Bob and I are still hurtling ourselves around, and I had to find the camera in his packed bags in order to take this photo! I'll be camera-less for the weekend....

He'll be sailing in the Shelter Island area of Long Island, and I'll be on the Connecticut River at the shower and then visiting my sister. Hopefully we'll be buying a flower girl dress this weekend! Poor mother of the groom is going to be the last one to get her dress!

Tapestry is beginning to seem like something I used to do. I've started a new warp for a small sample project while I have two larger projects in various stages of woven incompletion (my neglected historical piece and 'Handsome Rob'), and there's a Hudson River design that is dying to get out of my head onto some paper. sigh.....

My weld is huge, and I'm ready to dye. I've got some handspun single-ply Romney for tapestry, as well as some commercial merino/mohair and some commercial wool, both of which I'd probably use for knitting. All I need is some time at home!

My dog Riptide continues to take up much of my time on weekdays. He's not failing yet, but he needs to be monitored fairly regularly to see if his liver function can improve enough to get him back on his chemo therapy schedule. If he doesn't improve soon it will become too late to accept him back into the program. It's a clinical trial being done by Abbott Labs. He's done very well on it for nine months before chemicals began to build up in his liver. He still acts perfectly healthy, although a bit more subdued than he was before getting lymphoma.

On that note....I have to get ready to take him for his blood work....
