    ~Snow, Sickness and KNITTING~

    Springtime in New England! gotta love it - and if we can't - tough! lol Here was our gorgeous weather on Wednesday....... I have been home with this sweetie..... - what better loving could anyone ask for than a nice toasty puppy when sick. Em and I are heading off to the Dr. shortly to see if she has ear infections or strep. Poor sweetie has had a terrible fever, sore throat and ear aches. There are so many nasty germs hanging around lately that it is virtually impossible to avoid them. I work in a school and my three children are in two different schools and DH works in a hospital. Germs abound! The puppy was diagnosed with Lyme disease on Saturday, despite the Frontline and vaccines and is on a month-long treatment of antibiotics for the Lyme and medicine for his ear infection. My poor little guy! I hate the damned ticks and we are overrun with them.

    There IS knitting news - I know, I know, hold on to your hats, teeth etc. - it seems as though my knitting news is sporadic lately but softball is in full swing! The girls varsity team have won all of their first 4 games - woooooooo hoooooooooo! and will be playing again today - they are more than thrilled! I have been working on thisHoneycomb baby blanket for a dear friend at work who is expecting her first little one - I'm so excited for her, but will miss her terribly next year! This pattern is very dear to me as my grandmother (deceased), my mother and my aunt (deceased) all made adult sized wool afghans in this pattern when I was younger - they were the most beautiful and warm afghans I've ever snuggled in! I don't remember who, but someone washed my grandmother's in the MACHINE AND PUT IT IN THE DRYER! ugh! so now there is a felted honeycomb afghan that is even warmer than the original! ;) I am very much enjoying this as it is totally not boring, yet a very easy pattern to remember!

    Well, I'm sorry this is so short, I'm off to the Dr. with Emily - I'd like to request that you please say a prayer, if you are so inclined, for my Dad who will be having eye surgery next week and then tests to rule out (I hope) cancer. He has been under such a terrible strain lately, taking care of my Mom and this is just so difficult. You are all wonderful! Thanks.

    Yikes, I had no idea you had some many germies floating around there. I hope Em and the little puppy are both feeling much better soon - and I also hope that ends the sickness in your life!!! That baby blanket looks so pretty - and how special to use that pattern. I am saying prayers for you Dad . . . and the rest of the family too.

    I'm so sorry to hear that Em and the puppy haven't been well. :-( I hope that they're feeling better and on the mend soon. And your dad is in my thoughts and prayers- I hope that his surgery is successful and that the tests confirm only the best. Your baby blanket is so pretty and I love the history and legacy behind that pattern. It makes it even more special- your friend is such a lucky lady. Thank you so much for all your support and good wishes this past week- it's meant more to me than you can imagine, especially in light of all you're dealing with right now. Hope all is well with you.. take care, Cathy! :-)

    So sorry to hear about your Dad. And the puppy... poor little thing! We give Jack Frontline and Interceptor (which, basically, intercepts any ticks and fleas, and seems to do a fantastic job).
    Now, that sock pattern for babies you were waving about... have you got it handy..?

    Prayers coming your way for you and your dad too.. hang in there.
