Something Wicked This Way Comes
I also got the hat felted, shaped and dried yesterday. I'm still running around in pajamas and Caleb was busy and Finn would only model the hat if I kept my finger on his beak which makes it really hard to take a picture (it looks great on him by the way), so you get to see it sitting on the floor. I really like the way it came out and I'll try to get Mickael to get a picture of me wearing it later. After my shower.
Finally, I wanted to give a little update on my brother in law, John. If you'll remember, right after Christmas he was hospitalized for Guillain Barre Syndrome which is a rare virus that can essentially shut down your body systems in its most severe cases. John couldn't support his weight on his legs and was loosing the ability to use his hands when he went to the hospital. He was released from the hospital after 6 days and is slowly but surely getting better. He can walk with a cane and his hands are much better and Wednesday night he was able to wiggle his toes. I just wanted to say thanks for all the prayers and well wishes you have sent his way. He's still got a long way to go before he's back at 100% and relapses of this virus are very common, but I thought I'd update you all on how he's doing.
*I'm not doing the Knit From Your Stash 2007 Challenge. I know if I try to limit myself like that, I'll probably end up buying way more stuff than I otherwise would. I'm going to try to use up stash yarn, but I'll be much better behaved if I don't have to adhere to any hard and fast rules. That's just me.
