Most of you know that for the last two months I have been away looking after my son.
I am back now, a little sleep deprived but all in one piece. Internet access was not always available to me, so there is a lot to catch up on!
Thanks to all of you who offered their wishes for my son’s recovery. It is so hard to see a child hurting, even if he is no longer a child. My son, Ari, has sustained nerve damage from a surgical procedure that went wrong. He has a long road ahead as he continues his rehabilitation, and every prayer and wish is appreciated.
Although we were able to find him excellent health care, the support in California for people in need is not the best and he does not have enough money to meet his bills, especially since he lost his health insurance along with his job a few months ago.
I will be hosting a blog event soon to raise some funds to help with his medical and other expenses. I will be sure to post all the developments here.
In the meantime, I have been busy knitting and designing. Here are some new things you can look forward to seeing:
The Embrace the Lace Club from Woolgirl, loosely based on the Seven Heavenly Virtues, is now featuring a new beaded lace shawlette pattern along with hosting a charity event in honor of the theme (my virtue: Charity). Please see the blog to join in the event, which will benefit Autism Speaks.
I am working up a new version of the Phoenix Rising shawl that was first seen last year in the Year of Lace 2008 Club. The new version is in a glorious yarn by Sweet Georgia and now includes more beads and features a different edging than the original.
And last but not least.. I am getting ready for Sock Summit!!! New designs and new classes.. oh my.
Please stay tuned for more developments, and thank you again for being such a worthy audience…
Love to all,
