Random Wednesday: Flashback Edition
I think I really loved my Indian costume when I was three. I fixed the worst of the major scratches in this photo (Mom's face and hair!) -- one of my favorite things as a kid was to go through old photos jumbled in a box, but the scratching is a major drawback to that type of storage system. Many years later, I put most of our photos into albums, which turned out to be a bad idea because of the type of albums (stupid "magnetic" pages) that I used.
I love this photo. I love Mom and how expressive the twins are -- should have cropped myself right out of this scan because those three make it!
It was a long day yesterday. In a nutshell, my sister is undergoing a course of chemotherapy during which scans will be taken at periodic intervals to determine effectiveness of treatment and, depending, carrying on or trying something else. Basically: Wait & See. And pray and hope and think good thoughts!
Knitting: I completely messed up Transverse the other day. I pulled the needles and unsuccessfully tried to pick up stitches -- no lifeline, of course, that would be too easy -- so it's in time out, sitting in a lump on my work table 'til I have the time and patience to deal. In the meantime, some quick and much easier knitting of squares took place during wait time yesterday. While I've been cabling without a needle more often than with lately, I'm currently knitting with cotton -- and perhaps a bit tight -- and a needle is a good idea. I didn't have an extra needle of any type with me yesterday, so I channeled MacGyver and used the clip part of a removable pen cap (no duct tape required).
