1. David's mother's health:
The tests this morning were all good news. We are extremely pleased and hope that what happened was just a random quirk. David sounds somewhere between exhausted and relieved. Strangely enough, I am still ridiculously uncomfortable with the uncertainty. A friend of mine said simply, "Sometimes definitive but bad news is easier to hear than apparently good but not fully satisfying news."
2. Knit Picks Options:
Knit Picks said they are sending me a new cord but did not answer my questions about whether this is a common problem. Nor did they say anything remotely apologetic. I am not sure whether to be pleased or slightly annoyed.
3. WIP Progress:
The Shetland shawl is blocking on the bed. Will it be dry by the time I'm ready to sleep? Is it big enough? I knit 12 repeats, which should have yielded a 70-inch shawl. It did not. I should have used a bigger needle. And--WILL I go to sleep? I really need to spend some serious quality time with the Castle sweater if I am going to finish it for NaSweKniMo....
