knitting by my hands and from my heart

The yarn stash just keeps on growing! I'm a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, and a friend who works in Corporate America, lives in the Boston, MA area and is always looking for more time to knit.

Knit Therapy

My holiday season was stressful. Not in the ordinary/last-minute-shopping/frantic-meal-preparation/insane-decorating kind of way. That I wouldn't have minded. In fact I was ready for that kind of stress. I was looking forward to B's 5th Christmas at 4 years old--the Christmas where they are so believing in all of it.

Now, don't get me wrong, Christmas turned out to be very fun but I just wish I didn't have a breast biopsy looming in the background to worry about. Right after Thanksgiving I was called back due to 'calcifications' in my left breast after a baseline mammogram.

Got good news on Dec. 26th that it is all negative/benign. Thank goodness, but coming down off that kind of worry is not as easy as it appears to sound. That's where the knitting comes in! It's definitely a stress-reliever but it was the last thing I wanted to do for most of the month of December.

I also obviously have not been on here to blog. I keep writing that I'll be on here more often and then there's always something to stop me--dag it all! I have read no blogs either--not in the mood--I'm slowly getting there.

Here's B's sweater progress (I had a whirlwind of knitting enthusiasm recently especially during yesterday's snowstorm):

I plan to finish it by the end of this month!
