snails...of the mail and knitting variety...
I can't believe I have so few finished objects six months into the year ~ I finally finished these socks over the weekend (ravelry notes here) ~ thanks again Will for the gift of this coveted yarn...I completely loved it and can't wait to use it again.
I immediately cast on a new pair of socks (ravelry notes here) ~ we meet with new doctors this week who will hopefully have better success at healing Jason than his last ones did. Anyway, socks are perfect for waiting rooms and hospital stays ~ hopefully the next few weeks will bring more positive results than the last ten months have. Please send us all the good juju you can spare ~ we are so ready to be done with this and start living life again.
I find myself continually surprised with unexpected snail mail lately ~ it always seems to appear at the times I need it the most. The smiles that these packages bring are big but nowhere near as big as the ones that cross my face knowing that we are being thought of during some tough times. I can't thank you all enough for the constant stream of cards and reminders of all the friends we have, near and far. You are all so appreciated ~ there are no words big enough.
This week brought many cards, yarn, hearts and even a bunny nugget :
Thank you Chris, Andi, Julie and Jesse ~ you and everyone else that has sent us something over these last months keep an eye on your mailboxes. I carved some time out this weekend to do some crafting and there are snails coming your way, bearing a little thank you to each and every one of you.
I hope you all enjoy what I've made for you ~ it's not much but I wanted you all to know that I value each of your friendships and the kindness you have shown us.
Have a wonderful week, all, and we will try our hardest to do the same!
