Today, my mum walked again. OK, so she was gripping two handrails at the time, but it was so great to see her on her feet. Two weeks ago she had a stroke and we weren't sure if she'd even be able to use her left hand, never mind walk. Tonight, I am thankful, and am back blogging again. I even did a bit of sewing last week - James prayed last week that God would make granny better so that I could finish his helicoptor hoody. Don't you just love that 4 year old honesty? I did finish the hoody using the Imke pattern from the Nancy Longdon book, and will post pictures some time.
In my absence, I was surprised to see that the blog got huge amounts of traffic via DailyKnitter.com. It's funny - I consider myself to be a sewer first and knitter second, but most of my visitors arrive via my free knitting patterns. So, by way of paying forward my extreme good fortune in having a walking mother again, my next post will include a free pattern for the above crochet bolero, complete with hand-written chart!
